sewing adventures...

I was shopping at the cutest little fabric/craft shop the other day called "Fancy Tiger".
They have all of this yummy fabric and fun things lining their shelves. I went there to get some fabric and a pattern for a new purse. I also ended up getting a pattern for a fun layered skirt. I think it turned out pretty cute for my first venture in to clothing for myself! I also grabbed a pattern for a dress for the girls.
Maybe I shouldn't have chosen an Amy Butler pattern for my first though because it was very tedious! You can't tell by the pictues but it has these fun layers that are unfinished so when you wash it a couple of times it has the fun kind of frayed look. I was even able to add a bit more length because as you know I'm a bit taller than your average gal.
Here are the pictures of the skirt and when I make the purse and dresses I'll post those pictures too!

Nicely done Jodi! Soon you'll be designing your own clothing line...which Becca and I would be avid shoppers of. We were just talking the other day about what great style you have and how you always look great! Keep it up.

I'm excited to see you and the girls come August. Yeah! If you want to read some of my random thoughts, I have a new blog at: keepingupwithpatty.blogspot.com.

See you soon!
