I have a plan...really I do!

I just keep getting sidetracked by beautiful pieces of fabric...



...but seriously wouldn't you have brought that piece home too!  I was at the check-out counter, I was next in line and then I saw the sign, tweeds on the second floor.  And I thought, what could it hurt to look?  Yeah, right, you know those famous last words?! *LOL* 



Anyway, I bought that along with a luscious gray silk crepe because I have a whopper of an idea for it.  I dreamed this people, dreamed it!  I woke up Tuesday morning with the entire dream intact.  I was able to write it all down and come up with a sewing plan...an amazing, awesome plan.  It's been keeping me company for the last couple of days and even though I won't be making it anytime soon...I will need a couple of days in a row to work on it, because it's intricate and it will need samples and some other things.  I will leave you with two words - Ralph Rucci!  More about that later but first a sneak peek...



So I bought two yards of the black & pink tweed...which is a Jason Wu fabric, btw! I love that...picking up designer pieces to make me some new gear with! *LOL* I've bought designer fabric before but I have to admit that sometimes walking around Mood and touching fabric makes me feel like a kid in the candy store.  

I've read all of the comments that have been left so far on the "One Year Later" post and I have to tell you that some of them really touched me. Y'all had/have some pretty nice things to say and now I feel like I have to work even harder to keep up the "illusion!" *LOL* Anyway, there have been so many wonderful stories/comments left on that post that I've decided to give away two (2) yes two $50 Mood gift certificates. If you think you didn't have a chance to win before, now there's an even greater chance! 

Okay back to the Jason Wu fabric, I'm gonna cut it out using my TNT dress pattern as a sleeveless sheath, line it with some hot pink lining and maybe add some pink piping to the neckline and armholes...nuthin' new or exciting just a dress that will let the fabric shine.  I only got to the sewing cave a little while ago because I spent my afternoon babysitting...




It was worth it even if it means that I didn't get any sewing done today!

...as always more later!

  8. Oh, those grandchildren are sooo sweet! The tweed is classic--and I am intrigued by the silk crepe and the Ralph-Rucci dreams! Mardel, Liana and I snoop-shopped at his little corner in Neiman Marcus recently (and Mardel was wearing an original Chado Ralph Rucci coat--WOW!).

  9. Cute, cute children. I've yet to meet a "tweed" that I didn't like :). That fabric is gorgeous. So rich lookin! Jason Wu is definitely a fav designer as is Ralph Rucci! I think you are going to make something fabulous!

  14. Can't wait to see what happens with the Rucci inspiration. Saw his creations at FIT and wondering if beading, stitching, etc will be involved here.
