    I have a few family events and a casual work do — I probably won’t make anything new to wear as I’ll wear the fancy things I’ve already made & focus on finishing gifts for now! But I did just buy some shiny rose gold pleated fabric to make a top for New Year’s using #117 from the 12/2017 issue!

    The places I’ve been invited are casual so no plans to make something special as of yet but, I have been known to do something quick and easy at short notice simply because I found fabric to fit the occasion.

    I am planing to visit a X-Mas party with my boyfriend. It will be held in Hilton hotel, and people like to dress up for the occasion. You can see pretty much every type of outfit from gowns to cocktail dresses, shirt dresses, funny X-mas outfits and etc. I was planning to sew a black swing velvet dress for the party. It is easy to accomplish and it always look great. It is also great to demonstrate trendy jewelry and accessories.

    I have several holiday parties I plan to attend with family and friends. I’m going to use Heat bond to iron fabric christmas prints onto a sweatshirt, then iron on smaller prints onto the knees of sweatpants, to make myself a matching Christmas outfit! Thank you so much for this generous giveaway!
