2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

#SEWING LIFE...

... a whole lot of things happen in my sewing life, for instance:
  • Patching a pillow sham for a friend
  • Replacing a zipper in a pair of pants; hemming pants,
  • and of course you also know I delve into an occasional pattern or two -  constructing garments for my daughter and myself.
But every now and then a little excitement comes out of my sewing room. Recently I had the pleasure of making a custom skirt for this young lady.  I'm just loving her festive Retro Vibe.

Her name is Ren and she is part of a local group called Roxy's Vixens.

The group recently participated in an event where they sang carols on Carroll Street down in downtown Perry, Georgia - how Christmas-y.  You can check out their Facebook page here.  Ren gave me an opportunity to step outside the usual realm of my sewing life.  Hopefully I'll get to do that more, and more in the upcoming year...
