A Ruffle Obsession...

Thursday, December 16, 2010

This One Piece Romper has been in my sewing pile for a week or so... Yesterday I got called in to work, which threw my sewing schedule way off... However, I think it worked in my favour because this turned out way, way more cute than I had anticipated. Sometimes I get this foggy vision in the back of my mind of how I want something to turn out, but I don't quite have all the details... It is fun to see it come to life in front of me!
I stopped by our Best (wo)Man's place for coffee this morning and chatted about wedding stuff, and guys, and her little one, then stopped in a new antique store that just opened up Downtown. They had some great stuff and cheap too! The owner said she will keep her eyes peeled for vintage patterns for me... Here's hoping.

After I finished the Romper, I dug out a piece of fabric that my best friend donated to me out of her stash and came up with my Ruffled Abigail Bloomers, which you can see more pictures of Here . I cut out a matching top which I will sew on Sunday if I'm not too busy... I still have some Christmas things to do...

And last but not least, I made these fleece lined knitted leggings. I literally was dreaming of this fabric. It was expensive (in my books), at $20/yard, But these are the warmest, snuggliest things I own! Pair that with the sweater my mom knitted me and my Sorrel Boots and I am ready to drop-kick winter!

Our Staff Christmas Party is this Saturday. I'm excited to not have to wear my hideous, oversized uniform shirt!
