There has been a great deal of sewing going on, mostly for others as well as many alterations. I have been teaching a number of people how to sew which has been very interesting as well as a number of fashion shows at high schools and colleges. Those events were great fun.
A number of positive things transitionally have occurred and will occur in the next couple of months and I am excited for that. Moving in April and looking forward to that. I have been living in this state for 34 years and am looking forward to the move as it is necessary and definitely time for a change. Change can be difficult but if handled correctly can do wonders for the soul. I am excited for this next chapter in my life.
I think I posted a while back about my love of African or Ankara prints as it called. I have a few pics of items that have recently been made from these prints. I am still in love with the prints and will always incorporate them into my wardrobe some way.
Love the way this jacket came out. I wanted to mimic the topper look that seems to be popular this season. It came out the way I envisioned, had to match the pattern in the fabric but that was pretty simple. Wish I had gotten a back view of the print as well. The pants were also made from a pretty print and I was able to match them the way I saw them in my mind. Very happy the way both translated into garments.
