happy sew september everyone! i have a wonderful diy to keep off a wonderful month of sewing for you all, but let me start by saying that i don't have a before picture of the dress because i shot it in RAW and the camera was unable to download it on the computer for some strange unknown reason sooooo without further ado......
i love the 60's...anything from that era is amazing from the fabric, to mod, to hippie to bright psychedelic interiors...love love love the 60's! i also love combining styles together to create something fun. i have this dress that has just been sitting in my closet for some time. i love the color and the shape of the dress but it has kinda lost something about it that makes me want to pull it out and wear it so i thought to add my vintage floral lace to the collar to create something new and a piece that is a bit 60's inspired.
so today marks the first day of sew september, yay! i started a sew september flickr account (thanks to erin's great advice) so you can upload your projects or if you want to send me images or links to your projects that is cool too! just send to ccpb83(at)gmail(dot)com. i am also gonna post pictures of my progress throughout the month as well as showcase what others are up to. i am soo excited that lots of people are on board with my challenge and thanks to everyone who has been so awesome about spreading the word!
first on my list is a new bike hat for tom that will be made out of a really really cute mexican blanket style fabric. will show you my progress soon! we are off to visit kelly-anne and her cute little nuggets later today and of course bringing a little project to sew while i am up there. hope you all have a great weekend full of sewing fun!
