Oh hello dear old blog. How are you doing? It seems like I have abandoned you for quite a while for the shinier and less time consuming Instagram. But the novelty of IG aside, I guess I kind of missed you. I miss sharing my new outfits with you, and my sewing plans, and other adventures. And I have done so much while we were separated. I suppose it’s time for me to share with you some of what happened in the backstage during this time.
I haven’t kept a great record of what I worked on, but I did photograph one outfit extensively outside of my sewing room, and with an actual camera, not my cell phone. And it was my classic McCalls 6696. Oh wait! You don’t know that this is one of my favorite patterns yet! I have not shared with you the several iterations of this dress that I have made! A hunt on IG for outfit shots is imperative now!
Now that we got my addiction the M6696 out of the way, I can share with you photos from one of my latest M6696 that I actually photographed with a real camera, as I said above. I found a cotton fabric at Hancocks with Mickey Mouse, and it was a tasteful fabric in black and white with red accents, which is not often the case with Disney prints found at chain fabric stores. And since I had a trip to Disneyland scheduled in the near future, I had to purchase the fabric, and wear it at the mouse’s own land.
And of course I bought ears that matched:
(you can buy those ears at: Alvena Diiva Desigs on Etsy)
Alright dear blog and dear readers… I think this is pretty good for today! I still owe you much more, but I’ll save them for another post. I have some beautiful knit dresses I made, a 70s inspired dress, a jumpsuit, cat skirts, costumes, etc etc etc. It will all make its way into the blog, pinky swear.
In the meantime, keep sewing!
