Leather in Summer

I'm so excited to be part of this challenge:

Join the Challenge-Sew Your Own Wardrobe for A Year

This challenge is a year of not purchasing any store bought garments (I'm not going to pretend that I won't be purchasing shoes during this time frame though!)! Everything that I will wear from here on out will be garments that I already own, or garments that I have made! 

Considering that I spend a good amount of money shopping, I'm thinking this will save me a considerable amount of money. I'm adding in my own stipulations, just so that I can hopefully reap the full benefit of this challenge (which not only will save me those dollas, but will help develop my skills and techniques, which is what I've been after ever since I began blogging as a sewist.)

1. I'm only allowed a monthly fabric budget of $100.00!!! MAX! And that includes notions, thread, zippers, snaps, buttons, ALL THAT! The only exception to this stipulation is I can buy material for others when I'm making them thangs. 

2. Um, I guess I only had one stipulation. 

So! "What am I working on", you ask? Currently: Leather Leggings. Am I going to be that chick? You know, that "leather wearing in the summertime" chick? 

Truthfully, if I had on that outfit, I sure would be!
