sewing update

I was home last weekend and had a really great time with family and friends. The last thing I did before I came back up here was go to clear out JoAnn's with my mommy. :-D

I bought all the fabric I'm going to need for my Dorothy costume and my Halloween costume (I'm going to be a pirate with Abbey and Jen). They're both going to be based on Simplicity 8851.

All I need now is a pirate hat and some ruby slippers...

I also rediscovered a beautiful, sheer, art deco magnolia print that I bought a while ago with no real idea of what I was going to use it for. On a whim, I layered it over some dark green satin (leftover from the dress a few posts back) and was taken aback by how lovely it was. The two fabrics will soon be made into a dress for the graduation of someone very near and dear to my heart. :)

Pictures to follow, once I get everything started!

Yay, updates! And I didn't even need reminding in your regular LJ! *chuckles*
I can't wait to see what lovelies you're going to be making! They both sound very nice...make that all three.
I'm glad you had a good time back home ^_^
