And I learned how to make a GIF over the weekend in my PhotoShopDC class.
I sincerely hope all those affected by Sandy are coping and recovering from the massive damage.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

|Sewn in December 2010|
|Alteration! I removed about an inch all across the lower edge of the bodice|
and replaced the wide wrap ties with a short narrow tie in the back.
It is so much more comfortable now.
| Outdoor lighting for photography varies greatly, doesn't it?|
Those very strong shadows are a result of a bright autumn sun at noon.

|half sewn - half pinned so that the bias pieces can hang before sewing.|
I splurged on Home Dec cording just because I loved it, and never have enough time to shop around for better prices.
However, it must be said that Michael always charges a little less than another fabric store might. And I know it's not just special treatment for me, I think he is like the bartender who slips a free drink to steady customers, kwim?
Who knows how DD will style it, I just threw it on.
|love the cording for the gathered shoulder seams!|
|and here is the sheer gold fabric for the godets - got a great price on the end of bolt at G Street Fabrics.|
You know, that place is a mystery to me. I go in there so often that the long time employees always great me with a smile. But then there are others who are just downright arrogant, and/or mean. What is up with that?
By now, G Street is like a second home to me and when I encounter that attitude, I just give it right back.
But seriously, why? The selection for apparel sewing seems to decline a little more every year and it is sad.
|as always, burda seems to be ahead of trends. I am sure I flipped right past this spread in 2008, but is looks pretty current now, doesn't it? I'd wear that yellow necklace towards the center of the page! Love it!|
|muslin fail, pattern fail,|

|I had shortened the coat pattern into a jacket pattern, but kept all the pieces.|
|I had even drawn little pictures across cut lines, to help me reassemble the pattern in the future. How thoughtful!|
|is it just me, or does this image look a little ... no I refuse to type the word I am thinking.|
