As horrible as my sinuses are treating me I felt like taking pictures for some reason…of all days, today while I suffered so greatly with effin’ allergies I felt like taking some pictures!…go figure……While I sneezed through them all my Sweetest managed to take a few pictures…please excuse them as they kinda jacked up and there was nothing I could really do about it but I wanted to take them anyway….the whole picture thing happened on a fluke too because I only got dressed to ride with my Sweetest to spend his birthday gift cards at Olive Garden (I didn’t get Olive Garden though; I don’t like it but my Huny did)….before I got dressed I was in my bed totally suffering…He coaxed me out of bed with promises of Sweet Tea and food…Good thing sewing is I and I is most definitely sewing; so much that I rarely wear anything I haven’t sewn myself…and I always seem to have something to wear….I’ve sewn so many comfortable pieces and its cool as eva’ to be able throw ’em on and be all right!…Yeah, I IS SEWING BAYBEE….hehehehehehe….
Now I made this top sometime last year; its an old school Simplicity pattern (#5933 to be exact) that I grabbed on one of my many trips to my local thrift stores….the skirt is a MsKRS original; its just a simple, pattern-less pencil skirt I made a while back too….the fabrics used all came from Hancock’s Fabrics (MY FAVORITE FABRIC STORE **here locally**), the lace too…came out of my stash…..my shoes are Steve Madden but I grabbed mine up at Ross one day my Sweetest and I were at Sprout’s…Score yeah?!…..the skirt fabric is a knit, the lace back and the micro polka dot fabric for the front of the top has a stretch rayon feel to it (the top fabrics)…and both were remnants…the pattern called for knits but both the lace is stretchy and I cut the front piece on the bias…I’m sure I actually made both of these pieces last year sometime….I wear my creations every day but I just can so not take pictures everyday…my moods just will not allow it….and I end up showing ’em all some time or another anyway….hence this here post! (smile)…well let me share some I-need-a-better-camera photos with you good people and I bid you all farewell until next time….
P.S. Meet my new friend Belle too! (my new dress form)….Pink Cookie (my 1st dress form) and I are more than happy to have her with us in my sewing room! (wink-wink)
