    This is so adorably chic, and it looks so soft! It’s perfect as a top with just the right amount of ruffles. Great job!

    Thanks, so much! I love Ugly Betty too…which is funny because I work at a magazine, wear glasses and really do dress/act a little kooky sometimes.

    I got paint on the bottom of my favorite grey tank, so I cut the damaged part off and sewed the remainder of the tank to the skirt part of a silk halter dress I’ve only worn once to a wedding 3 yea…

    Cool! I like this print, too. Yay for recycling old couches! Mine is lime green and from 1962, but still in good upholstery shape right now. If my “Jimmy Hoffa Couch” ever needs recovering, I won’t…

    Cuteness! These sleeves (and fun poses) make me so happy! :)

    Thanks for your comment on my second-chance top! I’ve uploaded the photo we’re going to use in the magazine if you want to check it out. (The magazine is called Jonesboro Occasions by the w…

    I found an old ankle length floral skirt at my mom’s that was much too large for me. I liked the fabric, so I decided to make it into a cute little spring top with a sash and fluttery sleeves. (An…
