I was feeling down again today but then I decided to sew and everything turned around! Well, it's not actually the sewing that really lifts my spirits; it's more the creating. I love that I can decide to make an article of clothing and in a couple of hours I am wearing it.
So here's my new shirt (and the first one I've ever made):
I seriously love this fabric. I am very indecisive when choosing fabric, especially when it comes to finding fabric for clothing. But I loved this as soon as I saw it!
Of course, I modeled it after the shirt I wear in all my pictures. You know the one (scroll up and see my pic at the top of my blog). Except this one doesn't have cap sleeves. I just didn't feel like doing the extra work.
I'm actually pretty happy with it! I considered turning it into a little dress for a while, but I am limited with what I can make when not using a pattern. I don't know.. I'm really into dresses lately so that might be what I try next.
So the original shirt cost like $78 at Anthro.pologie (no, I didn't pay full price! What do you think I am, nuts?!) and mine cost around $10. I actually paid $18 for all of the fabric, but I'll get a skirt out of what's left.
I love sewing clothes! Just don't turn them inside out or else you'll know I don't really know what I'm doing.
So I'm sitting back watching Celebrity Apprentice and all of a sudden... THERE'S MY DOG! I'm used to seeing my husband pop up in commercials, but when Sophie appeared I got so excited! My baby! So here she is, in a promo for her doggie IQ piece that airs tomorrow on the 11 p.m. news:
Sophie's a star!
