Instant Gratification

You all know that I love to sew. What you might not know is that I have a serious issue with projects taking too long. If I can’t wrap it up in a week, my patience starts running a bit thin. So, I have plan. I am recreating a dress that I saw in a picture, and I’m going to spare no expense with detail. Overcast allowance finishing. 1/2″ pleating around the hem. I’ll post pictures as I go along, but for now you can see my inspiration.

Leggies!

 Megan & I have so much fun sewing our own leggings! Nice leggies aren’t very cheap, but with some scrap Lycra and about 1 1/2 hours of extra time, you can have really nice custom ones! These are my new ones, made of the leftovers from a swimsuit.

Mom says they look like something Mick Jagger would wear, but 80’s stigma aside, they are warm & fun to run around in.
