Recently there were two Questions of the Day and I wanted to share some totals with you. On the Press or Smooth post here are the totals:
Press only: 42
Smooth only: 17
Press and smooth combo: 24
The second Question of the Day was Construction Details Yea or Nay. Here are the totals for whether you like just pictures or construction details - there were no votes for photo only blogs so here are the vote totals:
Construction Details: 82
I'm really digging (now that's a throwback word, isn't it!) Vogue 8786.
This will be a perfect throw on work dress for me. It's loose-fitting with seaming details which will give it the appearance of a slimmer look. I want to make it out of a ponte knit from the collection. But that is the easy look that's on my immediate sew list.
My next three projects will be more involved. I'm not expecting to have anything completed quickly...The McQueen Dress, another version of The Rachel Dress and a surprise project. One I'll talk about more when I've gathered all of the pieces...but it's something I haven't made in quite a while and never since I've started blogging. I'm pretty excited about it and will share more later.
I've already planned my Easter Outfit. The fabric, patterns and notions are all in-house. I have my shoes and handbag. I just need an Easter bonnet, though I know what I want just have to find it. Since Easter is early this year, I will be working on it before the month is over...or into Easter weekend since I have Good Friday off...more about that later.
One more thing...
Thursday morning I received an email that Melody at Fashionista Fabrics was having a sale. Being that I was having a difficult work week and fabric always makes me feel better, I moseyed on over and checked out the sale. Here's what arrived this afternoon...
(I made a blouse from the orange/white version)
Palazzo Silk - this piece is
so pretty it makes my heart sing!
The sale has been extended to Tuesday, March 8th so use the code "ANNIVERSARY50" to get 50% off all the fabrics on the site (Burda Magazines are not included). So go, shop and help Melody celebrate five wonderful years selling amazing fabrics!
Okay that's what's on my mind this first weekend of March...
...as always, more later!
