Mojo Regained

29 Apr

Folks, I’m happy to report that my mojo is back. As you may have gathered from my posts, I’ve been super busy and have had a distinct lack on interest in sewing. Well, that finally broke this weekend. I wanted to whip up something to take to Michigan in a few weeks. I got an idea in my head about a late 60s style look for the weekend.

This dress is from the September 2007 Burda Magazine. I’ve sewn it twice before.  I’ll post photos on my persons in a few weeks after I get to wear it. My main motivation for using the bamboo denim was to have something to wear this Vogue jacket with. If you recall, I never knew what to wear this jacket.  I also figured with spring  just reaching Ann Arbor in May, I’d want some extra coverage!

I also managed to serge a whole in the back of the skirt. I’m tentatively planning on adding a bow or something to the hole. I’ve also started a knit maxi dress that I’m pretty excited about. I’m taking that to Michigan with me too if I can get it sewn up on time.

I know dressform photos are rather dull. But, it’s been raining and going to keep raining the next few days. Plus, I really like to wear and take photos of new clothes the day of. So, please, continue to be bored :)

 

 

Toodles!

    You should have done like Patricia did with her leather pants on Project Runway and cut holes all over the skirt! LOL! Make it part of the “style”!

    Wait… you’re knitting a dress? You knit, too? We need to get together and compare projects, Renee. I mean it this time!

    Oooh! I’ve got to take a closer look at that issue. I don’t remember any of the dresses looking as snazzy as yours. It looks great with the jacket!

    Love seeing your clothes even on a dress form! Great dress + jacket combo, and that bamboo denim looks pretty cool! Isn’t it great to get your mojo back?
