Well sewing loves!! I finally finished my LBD creation! I was 95% finished and only needed to hem the dress and it sat on my dress form for about 2 weeks. I have no idea why I do that..
Anywho... I am one of those sewing divas that while in my "sweatshop" I need some sort of noise to keep me rolling. Well this can be my neo-soul, my old school or my tv shows that I can't seem to keep up with. No matter what there is something blasting in the basement! My latest addiction is Mad Men!
I have to be honest I was never able to watch it consistently during the seasons, but watching them all at once is wonderful!! So NOW that I've caught up with the first three seasons I have a new life goal.... COSTUME DESIGNER!! LOL When I say this wardrobe GAVE ME LIFE!!!!!! SOOOOO First inspired outfit happened by accident. As usual ANY pattern sale I'm there and during Joann's recent sale I picked up this little number....
I found the fabric at my fav fabric store here and it's a beautiful silk dupioni that I got for an AMAZING PRICE!
So this little number also is double duty because I joined a wonderful sewing group of divas on Facebook, SEWN UP-A Group for Sewists and Would-be Sewists and I have enjoyed EVERY moment of sharing with these talented sisters! We have a GREAT LBD challenge and I thought this would be PERFECT for this challenge. So whatcha think?? :-)
