THANKS Project Runway! ~~

Project Runway made me do it! ~



All cut out & ready to sew......Simplicity Pattern #6888

Gathering.....

Ironing.....
My two "black & whites" Cookie & Cosmo always keep me company :-) Where were you Cabo?


Putting in the zipper.....

And WA~LA ~~ Here is my completed project runway dress :-)


I finished my summer dress - yes it's the end of summer but better late than never, right? :-) Project Runway MADE ME DO IT! ~~ I give them all the credit. Don't you love that show?!
It inspires me, really gets me going, & really makes me wanna sew & create something.

I love watching them drape this piece of beautiful fabric over that piece of gorgeous fabric, adding ruffles, & trims - all while pinning them to a dress form. And then ~poof~ they have a wonderful creation flowing down the runway. I've always used patterns but I think it would be fabulously fun to create something on a dress form. Even if I never do it I sure love watching it on Project Runway.

So, here is my new little dress which I finished Tuesday night & wore yesterday when mom & dad came for a lunch visit. It's nice & cool & comfortable & thanks mom for suggesting I can still wear it with leggings when it turns colder. So maybe I'm not too late for summer after all.

And NOW, I have to go watch tonight's new episode of PROJECT RUNWAY!! ~~ xoxo

Oh wow! That is too cute. You are so creative. Girl here in Texas you know it doesn't have to be Summer to be warm enough to wear it. LOL
Have a great weekend!

Very cute!!! I love it! When winter comes put a a turtle neck under it that matches your leggings or wear a sweater over it. I have NEVER seen project runway, maye I should see if I can find an episode online.
