Here's my Sari Skirt, made with Sari silky fabric from Joann's. I love the emerald color, and the whispers of cobalt blue make it so interesting to look at. Numerous gores, this skirt is very full, but because of the lightness of the Sari fabric it's light enough to be comfy. I can't wait to pop it on in the summer temps!
One day I'll get to India. I imagine it as a land of full blown color jam, hot and intense as ever. It's on my bucket list.
I like elastic waist skirts because I make them with a lot of ease--LOL--"tight" doesn't suit me. Especially when I eat cake for breakfast, which is
almost every day hardly ever, but I'm just sayin'....
It's against the law to wear tight waist clothing in my house. Ewe.
I know, I've said it a thousand quadrillion times--but I adore the Mission Maxi pattern you guys. Go get it now, or
I'll slap you you'll be so upset with yourself when you finally do get around to sewing it. You'll say "Self, why didn't I buy this pattern sooner! For shame!"
Seriously--chicness and comfy-ness = nearly perfect wardrobe. I say "nearly" because the only thing that is "perfect" to wear is your birthday suit, but I'm sure you know that already. Don't look around like I'm talking to someone else--you know it's true.Just remember, your neighbors see EVERYTHING.
I do apologize for my punchiness today.
It is what it is.
Did Shakespeare say that? Or The Beatles?
Or some Frnech person I should know-- C'est la vie....that's it. It was Frenchie.
Da da da donnnnnnnnn:
another Mission Maxi.
You see what I''m talking about? It almost looks JCrew -ish. And instead of $456.98 it's only $12 of fabric and a bit of elbow grease.
(I always hated that phrase but sometimes I use it just to gross myself out for a minute. Are you grossed?)
Are you now singing "My lumps, my lumps", ....don't hate on me, it was Fergie who did it.
*Am I the only person who thinks of the Duchess of York when people talk about "Fergie"? Say it ain't so.
Another Mission Maxi in a wonderfully BRIGHT bloom print. I'm all about keeping the spandexy-knit industry alive--keeping these people in business is super important you see, because I'm a S T R E T C H addict and I hope to found a stretch cult one day. Life mission.
ahhhhhh yeahhhhhhhh c a k e
Then I practically screamed when I saw this silky knit tie-dye bolt in the shop:
You could totally wear a black leather Moto with this baby, or stretchy haute leather leggins, ya dig?
I kind of messed up with my serger thread being white, but hey--I'm ok with it. Bahah
This high low top pattern is an easy sew pattern, which I can't find right now because I'm in the middle of moving house, I'll update when it surfaces. LOL
Next time I think I'll make the front one piece, that middle seam bugs me a little.
Actually it bugs me a lot. Who the hell puts a seam right between your hunies? Rolling eyes.
Then I found these little gems in my "Memory Trunk" in my Mom's attic. These aprons were one of the first things I learned to sew. I still love the design.
I hope you have a wonder filled week!
I'm struggling to keep up with things right now, but I know it will get better---moving, new jobs, new schools, commuting until the contracts are signed,----it's LIFE full on! I think of Dory whenever I start feeling like a whiny b*tch --"just keep swimming". She's SO wise.
See you soon!
cake is good for you
