Good Morning Everyone!! At least it's morning in Chicago :) I have a hair appointment today, so I will be doing another post with pictures later this afternoon(once I look presentable!!).
Yesterday afternoon I received a delightful email from Jenny, a follower and she said,
"You definitely make it difficult for me to keep my mind on court reporting. I am always off to the sewing room to try another of your designs. They are so much fun."
She included pictures and as you have found out, there's nothing more I love to do than brag on all of you when you take a chance on something I've posted.
Below you see her slippers, too cute!!
Jenny said, "I actually had the jersey knit in my stash. I next to never wear or work with prints. I love them, and I have no idea why I never use them, but I don't. I've had that jersey print for a long time, and when I saw your billowy sleeve, I wanted to try it and went searching to see what I had on hand. Now, not only do I love the sleeve, but I love the shirt! And I managed to clean out one more piece from the ever increasing stash!!"
You look awfully happy to me Jenny!! I love it!
Not long after I received Jenny's message, I saw a post from Javie of http://dashingmarmot.wordpress.com/. She has made the Draped Front Ballerina Top I posted here, http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2011/12/fabulous-free-pattern-friday_30.html.
Here's her lovely creation,
http://dashingmarmot.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/missoni-draped-ballerina-top/ I have a piece that I think I am going to use to make the top and add long sleeves. You've inspired me Javie!!!! Really, a lovely top!
By the way, I sound like a broken record, but if you would like to make the slippers that Jenny is wearing, you can always email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll happily send out the pattern. It's a PDF so no mailing involved. You can see my original post on the slippers here, http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2012/09/fabulous-free-pattern-friday_20.html
Have a wonderful day everyone and sew on!!!!
