I want to start off this post by saying a HUGE thank you to everyone who sent such wonderful emails and comments after my post yesterday. It means a lot to me knowing that I belong to such a wonderful community of people. Thank you again and I want you to know that I am sending out big (virtual) hugs to everyone.
Today is a new day (I am feeling much better) and I’m ready to get back to my sewing adventures…
To ‘start off’ right, I went shopping. I managed to swing by Hancock Fabrics and pick up Vogue 8358 – this is certainly a dress that I do not need (there really isn’t an occasion that I can wear it), but it’s such a classic design that I couldn’t help myself. I also think that it will be a very flattering style and quick to whip up – a combination that I couldn’t resist. In light of Taylor’s new interest in creating plush, I also picked up more fiberfill stuffing.
I also couldn’t help myself with two fabrics from Emma One Sock – the vintage toile triple mesh knit and the Italian fancy ladies print sateen stretch. The pink sateen fabric, I intend on using for a pair of spring capris (maybe a jacket, instead?). It reminds me of a shirt that I had gotten for Taylor 4 years ago from Limited Too and had wished I could fit into it for myself. I figure that if, after I receive it, it looks too ‘juvenile’ that I’ll use it to make a cute dress for Taylor.
Lastly, on a complete impulse buy, I got these (they were only $4.99 in the store, I’m not sure why they would be so much more online). I can’t wait until Valentine’s Day!
