Stitching Spotlights 4.30.2010

This has been one hell of a week for me. Haven't been feeling real well, hence the lack in posting and such. But I couldn't just miss my weekly spotlights now could I? There is some great sewing going on around webland these days. I mean there usually is. You guys are seriously awesome.

This week's spotlighted creation is from Karen at Did You Make That? A little green to go with your envy for some sewing inspiration. You know what's crazy? I made this dress in green too, if you remember. Great pattern. Great fabric. Great fit. Karen, this is crazy fabulous! So glad you finally got to wear it too.

Have you seen these? They are to die for gorgeous and a perfect compliment to the warmer weather coming up. These flowers are like JCrew worthy if not better, don't you think? Love love love them! I'm sure you will too! And they look seriously easy to make, not to mention so sophisticated and elegant.

Lastly, here's a peek at my next sewing project. I've been contemplating a fitting shell for awhile now. Just to see what it's like. I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot about it. Crazy thing was, I was just about to buy the Vogue one and the pants too (which I still might) online and then I went thrifting and what did I find? Yeah, this perfectly intact pattern, uncut, complete instructions and only a whopping 50 cents. That's right. Now that is what I call a bargain and in my size no less. What luck! And did I mention that there are 8 pages of instructions on fitting and alterations and such? This one is from 1985, however since it doesn't look to have changed too much from the modern ones,  I think it will do the job just fine.

Happy Sewing Adventures and a well rested and invigorating weekend to you!
