I might be a little late, but I think Rachel Roy is my new favorite designer.  I love the simplicity & the edge of her collections.  Here are a few of my favs from different collections.


I love Flowers

I love flowers.  They are so pretty.  Over the last year I have become slightly obsessed with floral fabrics.  I have purchased at least 3 yards each of 6 different floral print fabrics. They have to be large prints though, I dont like the tiny flowers.  I have no idea how I am going to use these prints, but gotta a little inspiration when I checked out Gertie's Blog and saw this beauty: 

V1117 is perfect and I also found this Threads article on how to make a fabric covered belt.  So I can't wait to work on this.
Now I just have to figure out which fabric I should choose?


I am not sure, but I think my "comments" section has been out of order.  Please try to post a comment & if it does not work email me.  I would appreciate the help.  Thanks.

Peace. Hills


Simplicity 2398 & 8th Grade Prom

Simplicity 2398

Friday my niece attended her 8th grade prom and I was asked to make the dress for her.  This dress came together very easily actually.  I was slightly intimidated by it because the dress had foundation built in the bodice which was needed.  I made version B with straps and she loved it.  I used a satin tafetta fabric that I found at Hancocks. 

Do any of you remember your 8th grade prom?  I remember mine & it was definitely not as fancy as theirs.  These kids rented limos...???? Really for 8th grade, I just found that to be kind of funny.  Anywaysssss, check out the pics of her in the dress.
