Hello friends! Hope you've been having a great summer!!
We entered a few contests (both now closed for voting).
Cow Appreciation Day:
Ansley's dress- top is Simplicity 0351a again, minus the elastic in at the bottom of the sleeves (Ansley's choice) and the skirt is just two width of (not prewashed b/c that's when our dryer was broken ha) fabric pieces gathered together.
Me- Colette Sorbetto Top minus the pleats and lengthened by the scientific amount of the width of a receipt plus sleeves and Oliver + s lazy days skirt pattern.
Tyrone- super cheater tie. I traced one of his ties and sewed the two pieces right sides together. I could've added interfacing but was lazy/running out of time and he generously said he didn't care.
We broke even this year as far as the free meal goes but since everything will fit next year, it'll be even better.
I posted a video on youtube. It's not as perfect as I want it to be but at least the lapped zipper of my dress looks good. :)
I also became obsessed with Castle, read all of the books by Castle, did some more sewing (pics to come), went to the Redwoods (coolest place ever! lots of pics to come), had another miscarriage on our trip (boo), and sent my camera in for cleaning. Don't worry, I've got a nice back log of pics to share. Or maybe you should be worried. . . .
