Sew Forth & Sew On

Sew, I am finding that sew much of my time is spent sewing for others. The others is very often my daughter, the younger one.  Sew, here I go again.  Her birthda is tomorrow.  She wanted a "fabulous pair of pants" to go with her "fabulous new shoes".  And being the pliable one, I had no choice but to comply.  Actually, she has done this sew many times, that I expect this before each "event" in her life.  And since she will never read this blog, I guess I don't mind sew much! :-)

She found a photo of Rihanna wearing a pair of "cigarette" pants.  Needless to say she had no idea what a cigarette pant was and as she described the pants, I knew eactly what she wanted. Sew, when she returned from her summer internship last week, we headed right off to the fabric store.  We found this great red suiting that I thought was a perfect choice for her "vision".  I used this McCall's 6758, pattern and I loved the final result.

And here is the final product!


The lighting isn's great on these, but this is the best I could do as she was packing to leave and was not a willing participant.
 
Sew now that these are finised, I'm on to the next project; a dress as a birthday gift for a friend!

There are times that you look at your mental list of things to do and realize there is no possible way in heaven or hell you will make it through a third of it! With that being said updating my virtual life to match my real life has taken a SLIGHT back seat.

I PROMISE TO DO BETTER!

At least that is until there is a Harry Potter marathon and then I can't and won't make any promises!!! Lol hey don't judge I have an addiction after all this time....


So where did we last stop, OH well I had announced my wonderful engagement! *update... MARRIED NOW! :-)

So the wonderful world of wedding planning! I must say I am and was the furthest thing from a bridezilla one could ever see! However, can't say the same about other people in my life... The plan was simple... Set a destination, invite friends and have fun!

Goal, set, match in my book!

It was wonderful! We got married at the wonderful Paradisus Palma Real in sunny (and humid as hell!) Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!



I (being the fab o friend I am) made all my bridesmaids dresses. Given the location I thought the perfect style would be an infinity dress and I must say they turned out FABULOUS! My friends looked great and we really had a blast!

Adding to my FABULOUSNESS, I also made my darling flower girl's dress. I love my Tay, even if she can be a little diva sometimes! She was fab as my little helper!



















Oh and I customized her basket because anything
Less would be totally uncivilized!! LOL

All in all it was a ball and I would trade the experience for anything in the world!!!




Because these two live to torture me!!!!! LOL :-)


Well, gotta keep updating!! More sewing projects to post!! 

HAPPY SEWING!
