Let's start with a football story, sort of. My daughter was still here last weekend when the Steelers were playing whatever game they played. When the dude with the hair, Troy, appeared on the screen, she announced, "He drives a little Beemer."
"How do you know?" I asked.
"I saw him at a gas station in Pittsburgh while visiting a friend. I said to him, 'Oh, you're that guy,' to which he replied, 'Yeah, I'm that guy.' Then he finished filling his car and left."
End of football story. Beginning of sewing.
First, the purple wardrobe I finished over New Year's weekend, and never posted pictures.
Two colored dress, to be worn with the little jacket shown below.
A line strappy dress with said jacket.
Cami, elastic waisted, straight skirt and jacket. Picture taken in the style of the American Eagle website, laid flat, so you could see the individual pieces. I lined this jacket with pink t-shirt fabric, because I couldn't find anything else. It's an informal getup anyway, so why not? this is a new pattern for me; I found it in my drawer full of patterns in November and decided to use it. I love that it has an attached collar, and still goes together in an easy afternoon.
And today, inspired by my friend Gaylen, I decided to try a dress pattern I've had for 2 years and been afraid to try. I used the brown velour, because I don't love brown, and I wouldn't cry if it didn't work out. I need to make a few more changes to the pattern, but my dearly beloved really liked this dress, and so it will appear again in my wardrobe. G, I know your skirt is giving you fits today, but thank you for inspiring me to try something new!
