WOW! I am seriously loving this thing called sewing right now...but alas it must come to an end lol. I have one top to show you guys tomorrow, and that is IT for a couple weeks.
It is time to back away from the sewing machine lol...
BUT I am still thinking about sewing!!! LOL
Let's talk about this thing called inspiration.....Where does your inspiration come from?
I was in blog land and when I got to Stephanie's blog
She inspired me to pull out M5591 view B
I think I have the perfect fabric for this one!! So, thank you for your inspiration!
That I just love. I'm going to make it with V8233.I Still don't know know what color combo I will do...but I love it!
So thank you Tearsa ! You inspired me!!!
Then there is Tany. We were talking ummmm Sunday night I think about the new BWOF....I'm waiting on this issue too. I am LOVING:
This top is SO hot to me!!!
Not only do I love this dress, the fabric is TDF!
This dress is SO going to be made...and YES in black! LOL
So thanks Tany! You inspired me!!!
Then, I think other than fellow bloggers, there is Pattern Review. This has to be one of THE best places on the web for inspiration. Why? Well, because it's one place where a LOT of other people show the garments they have made!! There are SO many things over there, that I may not have EVER noticed, had it not been for someone sewing it up and posting it!
I was looking through the gallery and came across this review. Had it not been for her, I would have NEVER thought to get this pattern! It is now on my list! LOL
So thank YOU! You inspired me!!!
Then, a couple weeks ago, I saw this review:
I about fell out of my chair! I LOVE this top!!! I went to the Vogue site and NOTHING...zip....the pattern is OOP and they don't even sell it!!! Remember that saying...whatever "IT" is......ummm hmmmm, went to ebay and lookie what I got yesterday:
Just like this DVF top:
DVF price $198. MY price...total probably around $15 bucks (pattern, fabric and notions)!!!
Yep!! I LOVE this shirt!! And I love the pants! I have this grey-ish color stretch poplin (that has a sheen to it), but it's a heavy poplin. Kinda hard to describe, but that would look great.
So thanks to all of you for your inspiration!!!
A corny post? Maybe, but it is what it is! Too bad I can't act on all this inspiration just yet! LOL
Ok, that is it! It's time to focus on my scrapping!! I leave later this week for The Scrap Etc Event in Nashville
I can NOT wait! I am almost finished packing, I have the kids stuff together...almost finished with the pre-cooking for the fam while I'm away. STILL need to do a bazillion rolodex cards.....that will be my focus on tomorrow, and I'm GOING to finish my knitting on the plane. I WILL FINISH MY TUNIC...Well....that is the plan! LOL
Ok. That is all! LOL
Have a great day!
OH, since I will be gone, there won't be a podcast, but hopefully once I get back I can get back on track!!!
