Shirt Dress...

Yes, I'm sewing again! I'm attempting to sew the Shirt Dress by Heather Ross from her book 'Weekend Sewing'. I managed to assemble the collar today with bias tape and all: I was very proud! I had to let it sit in my head for a couple of days trying to figure out how to put it all together but it worked!

But now the sleeves are next and I just shiver at the thought. Time for a break I think. Also buttonholes (8 of them!) are coming up, but that should be easy since I now have one of those easy buttonhole makers on my sewing machine. I'll practice first I think on a scrap piece of material, just to be on the safe side...

Yesterday I purchased another pair of skinny jeans. (at Target for $18!) These are the longer ones so that I can fold them over at the bottom. I rather like them. (a lot!) Very tight though, I can hardly bend down or over.  Sometimes we have to suffer in order to be fashionable, or at least a bit I suppose....
Well, the sun is shining AGAIN today so I'd better get some vitamin D out there.  Later on today I will get to see M. play in her Basketball game and after that I have to take C. to the orthodontist for a quick check-up. On the way home it will be time again to pick up our second box of organic fruits and veggies...
See ya!
