Shine bright like a Diamond - Burda 6858

October is almost OVER! Time is flying faster than I can look up some days. Two weeks ago one of my best friends married one of my other friends in a BEAUTIFUL outdoor wedding in a crook of Richmond, VA. Being that I love me an event to sew for, I mulled over about 4 different patterns, none of which were the one I chose lol The colors were purple and silver so I had some purple stretch cotton and purple lace I was going to use.....but did not lol. As the date got closer I was bordering on not making anything because I had found a really pretty gown at Ross. Then 2 weeks before the date, I had an epiphany at work and this pattern popped into my head.  As soon as I got home I pulled it out and searched my stash for fabric that would go with it. With a new determination, and a couple of other turns taken, I finished the dress the night before the wedding in 4 hours lol.

Birthday Hack! - Itch to Stitch Lindy & Davina

Woohoo! It's been one year since Itch to Stitch patterns released their first pattern and they are ready to celebrate! When Kennis hit up a little bit ago and asked me if I wanted to help celebrate, i was honored! Plus I'm ALWAYS ready for a celebration lol

She offered to send me a pattern to make and I went for the Davina dress. I love a V-neck and I appreciated the different style options. Because the them of the celebration is to HACK, I decided to throw a Lindy Petal Skirt on the Davina. I had actually already had the Lindy in my email for about 2 months. Plus it's free!

Chambray Joggers got me looking like Hip Hop - Vogue 8909

Well if this wasn't a LOOOONNGGG time coming! I've been wanting a pair of joggers since the hipsters started hipping and people started accepting sweat pants as casual clothes lol I'm definitely all about comfort when I'm around the house and even when I'm on the go. I don't always have a fancy event to wear dresses to. Most of the time I'm just chilling with family or running errands or relaxing in the house, and those are things that I DON'T need to get extra dressed up for lol.

Autumn Wrap - Vogue 8379

Greetings from ever dramatically-changing weather on the East coast. I swear it was JUST summer two weeks ago and now it's feeling like borderline winter. I guess it is October... but geesh. Can we have a transition period??! lol.

Anyway, I've already started switching the style up. In the ThRed&Needles sewing group on Facebook, the September sew-a-long was wrap dresses. Perfect! because I LOVE me a wrap dress and they look great in every season. Throw on a blazer or a scarf and that makes it all the better. For this dress very autumn-colored dress, I decided to rock some boots.
