We got our very first House of Pinku dress in the mail today! Thanks Julie! Stella got to wear it first because she's the oldest.

New Project Runway Project

I don't know what's up with Season 6. Last I read it was supposed to be starting next month, but I don't see any evidence of that.

So. A N Y W A Y I got a gift certificate to B&N for Christmas this year. So what did I order? PROJECT RUNWAY the ENTIRE first season on DVD! Yay!

So maybe I'll start up with the challenges/blog thing again on my own, kind of like an independent study....

Red Roses

I fell in love with this fabric, although the scale is a little large for Blythe clothes. It really is that red.

New Additions

This is the second of the vintage fabric dresses, a lot of hand-sewing on this one, and a dilemma about whether to close the back of the skirt. I opted not to, as closing the skirt "tamed" the petticoat, and I like how it looks.

This one was SO FUN to make! I am so pleased with how it turned out, especially the buttons as embellishment. She looks like she's ready for an Austin Powers set.
How could I possibly resist this fabric? Another classic party dress. I'm considering doing a "series" of black and white clothing, for some reason I've been drawn to that color palette lately.
