Anyway, back to more light hearted topics because I am sure you don't want to hear about my working life. Of course I am planning away for my winter wardrobe. While on a brief holiday a quick trip to the thrift store yielded some wonderful finds - enough fabric for 4 blouses, 4 dresses, and maybe 2 pairs of jeans in a nice denim. What a haul! I have a blouse made up already from a piece in my haul which will make an appearance this winter. For my other winter pieces I got some nice wools.
As an update for my Casablanca Wardrobe Challenge, because I am sure you wall want to know how I am coming along on it. . . Its coming along well. I still have the suit look and the white linen jumper look to do. I am hoping that by the end of the this year it will be completed. It took me a long time to find the right material for the blouse and when I did find it I had very little sewing time. . . and pattern making time too . . soo. . .yeah. I'll get there, promise. Actually I am kind of hoping to do a tutorial out of the blouse as I am going to be using a Lutterloh pattern for it.
I did get some stuff accomplished on here though. I showed off some of my 50s frocks this spring and I used some pretty bright colors this time. 50s summer dresses are so pretty but I will confess 40s summer pieces are really the most practical.
Anyways with blueberry season in full swing now I am not doing a lot of sewing and that also explains a lot of the silence here on the blog. This fall and winter that will change I hope as I get back into a regular routine with dressing up and getting pictures. Oh! and you might want to keep and eye out on a product review of Beseme cosmetics soon! I was gifted a violet brightening powder and was so impressed that I ordered some more goodies to try out.
