I hate a good bit of my clothing at the moment. I've decided to try to make as much of my clothing as possible, mostly so that it will fit properly. I've been scouring BurdaStyle.com for pieces I think I could pull off, and would actually wear. The first one I found is the short sleeved blouse.
I don't think I would have chosen it, except I found this fabric at Jo-Ann last night:
This is a beautiful sheer (unfortunately polyester) chiffon, with velvety pink dots. I can't wait to sew it up! But, it's going to have to wait for a couple of weeks. We're going to Chicago next weekend, and Rachel has asked me to alter some T-shirts, so they're cuter. I tried to find some black jersey last night, but that's impossible to find. Why? WHY?
I did stumble across some fabric which will be a PERFECT print accent for the family room. Observe, a day in the garden:
The brown matches our couch, and the blue is the color we've chosen to tie the whole house together. Hooray! I picked up the last two yards, because I just knew it wouldn't be there if I didn't.
I think I'm going to have to do white for the main part of the curtains, just to brighten the room. And then I'll line them with block-out, to keep out the light. Haha. Paradoxical.
