it's supposed to be 90 today, so i thought i'd try to get some more mileage out of my summer clothes
plaid mccalls 5388 dress
ck leather belt i've had since high school
i've never worn this dress belted before. i actually kind of like the look.
i recently borrowed fit for real people and pants for real people from the library. i've gotten more useful info from the pants book. there's a nice section in the back devoted to all the little details of pants, including zippers, waistbands, and pockets, including several different welt pockets. i might buy this one.
there's a blog doing a free motion quiltalong with lots of different yet simple examples of free motion quilting. i like to read along and wish that i had more time to practice those techniques.
i'm debating whether or not to subscribe to burdastyle magazine. i got a gift subscription from my mom in 05-06. the magazine is great and definitely worth the price if you actually use the patterns. i recently had a lightbulb go on in my head so it's not as annoying anymore for me to trace patterns. i bought a couple of back issues to help me make up my mind.
is this a D&G tiny granny square bikini? not that i'm rushing home with my hook to make one or anything, but hey--it's kind of cool.
there's a new expanded edition of Aran Knitting out with additional sizing and a new pattern to boot. i love looking at these complex designs for inspiration.
this is really pretty. and so is this.
have a great weekend!
