real life monday night

tonight, in my real life, i am looking at the ceiling


and pretending to walk around like a fancy person.


i am also flipping through my inventory of pretty fabrics, recently purchased from the flea market and garage sales. im probably not going to make anything new soon, i figure ill only get better when im taking these fashion classes come january, so why dont i just hold off for a little while?

this lace will become a pretty collar.


and this pink, im imagining, will one day be a cute little shift with the matching trim that came with it.


here are a couple more-


1. a jumbo floral
2. loads of pretty, summery plaid for a dress
3. a stripey, nubby guy
4. that salmony-pink, sturdier fabric ive got plans for
5. a lace sorta thing with a coupla stains, but i wouldnt have a hard time working around them
6. i always need chambray!

i am also wearing a fifty-cent sweater, thinking about my driving class tomorrow and glad that my cat wasnt killed in a freak accident today.

You are just such a creative, cool gal! I can't get over the eclectic perfection of your room! Nothing like looking at the ceiling and pretending to be fancy (story of my life!). Isn't it grand to day dream about future sewing projects? I think it's fantastic you're doing fashion classes. I DREAM of such things!

Very cute sweater! Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, also. Would you like to swap links, as they say? A.

There is nothing more fun than getting out all your fabric and imagining what you're going to make with it except maybe buying sweaters for fifty cents. I look forward to seeing what you sew.
