My dear followers: meet _______

Posted by Picasa

Yes, I FINALLY got a DRESS FORM! I am SO excited. It arrived a week ago... however, both of our cameras went missing (arg!) and I could put pics up at all! (Which was really frusterating since I wanted to decorate my "new" fashion blog and schedual posts for it... if the cameras hadn't disappeared, by now things would be looking more presentable and there would be enough schedualed posts for a month! Special thanks to mi madre for finding the cameras late last night :)

Which brings me to my point: This is my new dress form, and alas, she has no name. (The horror!) So, I'm asking all of you to please comment with suggestions! (I was thinking of turning this into a blog event, but I think that's a little over-the-top....don't you?)

Thank you!


p.s. yes, that is the "Marian" dress.... formerly known as the "inexpensive fantasy dress". Still in progress.

Today is 9/11....

I thank God for the men and women that served our country on this day, nine years ago. Our country may have been destroyed if those on the hijacked planes had not intervened... and I am convinced God intervened as well.
May we always be mindful of those who sacrificed their lives for the good of our country.

the Autumn dress inspiration post

 I haven't started this project yet; I'm finishing the other ones! Still, I thought it would be nice to have up...

Here is my original inspiration:

"Autumn Princess" dress from Pearson's Renaissance Shoppe

It'll be like this in the back:

I'm embroidering the trim myself (!) but I won't put any on the hem. The trim/embroidery will have these thread colors:

This is what I've been doing lately....

Yup. I pulled my quilt pieces out (from last August) and I've been quilting like a madwoman since Monday.

Victorian spoon heels!

..or at least, a modern version. I LOVE these shoes. :) Mom found them for me at Ross. Very similar to these:
Oak Tree Farms Women's "Veil" boots

...........except mine were $16 and these are $99.
