Okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system, back to my first project. Valentino's design team for Fall 2013, created a series of accessories using stud accents. Handbags, shoes and boots all have been accented with studs.

...which I'm going to use as an accent on Butterick 5821.
This pattern has been on my to-sew list since it was issued. I understand why it hasn't attracted much attention because the design crew at ButtMcVogue picked the fuggliest fabric EVAH to make this up in.
However, if you look at the line drawing, you can see that this pattern has a lot of potential. Add to it the laminated ponte that I also purchased from Mood's NYC store and I think I have the opportunity to make an amazing dress.
As I stated earlier, this will be my first sewcation project. I'm hoping that by using my TNT dress pattern as the basis for pattern alterations that this will go together quickly.
Of course I will share all of the details, so stay tuned. Yeah, my sewcation is starting now!
...as always more later!
