His and Hers microMOD Sew Along

Hey Hey friends!  Welcome to my stop for the microMod sew-along.  I knew right away that I wanted to make something wearable, because let's face it, this fabric is way too awesome not to show off.

But before we get into the nitty gritty details of my project, let's find out some from trivia from the  microMod duo ala Craft Junky style!

Question: If your spouse could be a super hero, what would their super power be and why?

Alexia says:   Rob's super power would be to be able to project movies with his mind! He loves movies and is especially good at remembering details and inspirations from films he has seen! 

Rob says:  Alexia's super power would be the power to grow additional limbs! She is always working on so many creative projects, and those extra limbs would be well used.

Seems like they know each other pretty well!

So for my project I decided to use Karyn's Enchanted Bow Skirt tutorial to make this fantastic skirt.

I decided not to make the bow since I knew that would probably be wearing it with my geeky t-shirts and converse.  

This print is called Vertigo and I think that it lends itself well to garment sewing as well as the hand of the Cloud9 fabric.  It is so soft and has such a nice drape, I want to make several more wearables out of it.  I paired the microMod with a simple gray hued shot cotton at the hem just to add a touch of contrast.  

SO now, on to the SEW ALONG!!!!!
