i worked on this top tonight, super easy working with jersey. i just think the cut of this shirt isn't right for me. i think it photographs okay but the fit is awful! it kind of looks like a chopped sweatshirt from the 80's...i suppose everything old is new again. i used jersey fabric and think maybe with a different type it will be better.
i have a whole new load of fabric to work with (thanks momma!) so i will be working on some new things soon!

The Ruffle Shuffle...or something like that

whipped this up this morning, or shall i say fought with it for an hour or so and then everything went smoothly. i am trying to use up my fabric stash, so i picked through a ton of weirdly cut left overs until i found something that worked!

i love the wireless remote i got for the camera. now i can do jumping shots! (dont judge us for the dead grass, its been hot here in denver!)

conquering my fear

i spent all night conquering one of my silliest fears. sewing clothes. i know, so strange. but i figured the pattern out and finished it! i wore it to work today, it fits and it is comfy! hello new obsession! (brody didn't help, she is just needed to be in all the pics)
