This is my latest wrap dress. I'm taking sewing classes and although I thought I already knew how to sew, can you imagine there is a lot I don't know.

Voila! The latest design. I found this fantastic piece of fabric only one yard, so I was forced to make this cute little summer dress. Currently I am working on my sewing skills so that I can sell my dresses on Etsy or somewhere. Soon.
Looking for a vintage wiggle dress pattern as that is all the rage, have yet to see someone in public wearing one. But I'll bet she looks great!

Burberry Prorsum is one of my favorites. Seems to me 40licious had this exact outfit by Ralph Lauren way back in the 80's. I really find it interesting and love clothes that you can look fabulous in while tending to your goat.

I like to thrift score, but sometimes there is so much out there that one doesn't know where to start. The first outfit looks like good starting place. An outfit by Michael Kors, maybe buy the belt and boots new so that you have a polished look, make the hat and skirt and thrift the sweater. The dress also by Michael Kors looks like something you could sew. In fact his latest pattern for Vogue may even BE this dress, it is difficult to tell as the picture is so dark. Though not a huge fan of his, these two outfits are sublime.

While thumbing throught the latest Bazaar magazine, I noticed the Missoni had a long crochet skirt that resembles the stitching I have been using and really inspires me to design one of my own. On further research I find some quilted skirts that look just like these pieces of vintage wool blankets that my mother just gave to me. Really is there enough time to do it all?

These three big scarves come from different designers. The top picture is from Michael Kors 2010 fall collection, the second is Yokoo on etsy which I saw last winter and the last is...I forgot but I found it on Etsy in 2008 and thought it was outrageous.
Interesting how ideas spread like wildfire. Looks like it is time I design my own oversized scarf.

Just when I am ready to give up on Etsy, I sell something which makes it fun again. Like gambling I imagine.
This Dark Chocolate Hobo bag is a really cute design, I'll have to try whipping up another although I don't have any more of this color.
The Octopus bag sold at Five Fingers. It is not likely I will make any more, it took FOREVER!
