How is everyone doing? It's almost summer and I am getting antsy to make something. Anything really, I have this cool pattern I bought on Burdastyle, here's a flat of it.
here. I have a problem with the jacket fitting my shoulders and then I have to go up in size. It will fit my shoulders but then the body is big, so that's why I want to make my own. I have the pattern and I have my fabric so hopefully this summer I can start... Let me know are they any motorcycle jackets you like or have to have? I think these would go well with those Skin Graft bags also.
Have a great week.

Happy almost memorial day! Anybody have any bbq plans for the weekend? I love bbq but that sauce gets everywhere.... Where I am going with all of this is Anna Maria Horner has a new line of fabric out and I love it. The name of it is Loulouthi. She has voiles, quilting weight cottons and some laminated cottons. The prints are adorable and I want to make myself a nice summer dress out of some of those voiles.
some miscellaneous prints from the lines below
All the pictures are from her blog. Go there to see some more pictures of the other prints. I love her fabric but I have yet to make anything out it. I have bought some of her fat quarter bundles but I just don't have the time to make anything. What about you? Do you like Anna Maria? Have you ever bought any of her fabric? Have a great memorial day weekend.

Does anyone remember those Red Bull commercials from maybe five or six years ago? The ones with that little dude and their tag line was " Red Bull gives you wiings!" I always thought they were funny but the point of this was because I was looking at Jak&Jil and I saw these shoes.
Don't these shoes just yell Red Bull. I don't think I would ever wear these, they are a little weird for me but you never know. What about you? Are you a Red Bull person? Would you wear these? You wouldn't be able fly but you can think you can....

Hello, hello. I am going back to my normal blogging of accessories. You know how I love them and I also love Jak&Jil's blog and as I was cruising along looking for cool things I saw this picture:
I don't know about you but I love rings and these have a very medieval feel to them. I love how she matched her nails to the rings. I don't know who the designer is or whose hand this is but it speaks to me. I think of knights in shining in armor and all the different kinds of armor in the different kinds of metal. They are kind of gothic but they have a romantic feel to them. How do you think they would look in another color? Maybe like an old copper, like the Statue of Liberty, I love that color and I think the rings in that color would be rad. What do you think? Like 'em, Love 'em or Hate 'em? Would you change the color if you could? Happy Wednesday.

Hello long time no blog. I just got done with my collection for the Fashion 130 class and man was that class a lot of work. In the end it was very rewarding and I loved my mini collection and everyone else's, we worked hard. The class was only six weeks so I think you do need to do some prep work before the class even starts. I only did one pattern for this outfit ahead of time.
It was a rough pattern and I still had a lot of fitting to do on the blouse pattern once the class started but the outfit came out great.
This dress that you are about to see is in it's third reincarnation. Originally I was going to do separates, but I wanted to save myself some time so I thought aha a dress should do the trick. I loved how this dress turned out, tell me what you think...
My final outfit is by far my favorite because it has my colors, the ones I love to wear and accessorize with. The pattern for both the shorts and blouse were time consuming but the final product looks great.
Here is the front:
But my favorite part of the outfit is the back:
I think I am going to make that this top for me, I just have to fit the pattern. The only thing I am disappointed about is that I was not able make any accessories, I started a clutch on the final day of class but I was just a little burnt out to finish it, so accessories coming soon. I just want to thank Natalia at West Coast Runways for being my model and you should check out her post here, where she has pictures of almost everyone else's collections from our class. Let me know what you think and until next time, happy shopping!
