...to make a spring topper from a black heavyweight ponte knit from the collection:
I have everything too - fabric, lining, buttons so I really should get on that! We'll see!
Now that I have the sewing cave there is no changing over of the fabric, but I will be moving some pieces around and changing up what I'm going to make. Oddly enough, I don't have a list yet. I just know that it's time to sew spring ~ the birds are singing in the mornings when I leave and it's light still when I'm headed home. Spring is coming and I need to get ready! Besides, I have plenty of fall/winter gear to wear until it gets warmer.
On another note, I got a new boss at work this week so I won't be going on a big vacation this year. I knew about the change earlier in the year which was part of the reason that I took so many vacation days in January and February. It will just make work easier if I'm around.
So since I have no vacation plans, I bought concert tickets to the Justin Timberlake/JayZ "Legends of the Summer" tour for me, my daughter and her friend. I haven't been to a concert in years people so I'm kinda excited to see this one! I listened to the new CD all last weekend (it was streaming free on iTunes) while working on "The Lace Dress" and downloaded it first thing Tuesday morning! Geeky I know but I love that little 'Nsync boy! *LOL* So expect to hear more about this as it gets closer to the date!
I've also developed an obsession with Roksanda Ilincic's designs. I love, love, love her Spring 2013 line and even though I made some basics awhile back instead of interpreting a dress that was burning a hole in my brain ~ expect to see interpretations of several of her dresses come from my sewing machine this spring/summer season.
The original inspiration
Love this cardi with the color blocked band
Love the unusual piecing on this one
with the pop of orange!
Aren't the cuffs awesome?
Well those are my ramblings for today...
...as always more later!
