I’ve been a terrible blogger of late—I go away for vacation, and just can’t seem to get out of vacation mode now that I’m back. I’ve been naughty, I know! While I’m working on a nice recap post for our trip to Nashville (complete with pictures, of course), I thought I’d give you a little update on my sewing projects to get me back into the blogging swing of things. Currently, I’m working on making up this little 1944 number—I’ve whipped up two blouses already, one in black cotton batiste, and one in a delicious aqua eyelet—and I’m currently finishing up a matching eyelet skirt. I adore the pattern and can see myself making it up again--it sews up quickly and easily, and the only adjustment I made was to add a little extra length to the blouse. Real pictures to follow soon, I promise!
Oh, and I must show you pictures of my new tropical outfit, created for me by a local seamstress—I picked it up yesterday and can't wait to wear it! Here’s a sneak peak of the fabric; I’ll add photos of me modeling it later today ;-)
