Happy May!

It's still not spring here most of the time, though! Darn Minnesota. The ice on our lake has yet to go out, but if it gets windy today it might. But it's cooold!

We had a bit of sun the other day, though, and I took advantage of that to have a bit of a photoshoot. Have I mentioned that my camera is broken? Well, it is. Just after these photos were taken, that evening, I turned it on at the screen was cracked. The most annoying part is that I have no idea how it even happened! I assume I must have dropped it, but I can't recall it. Hm. So now I'll be begging & borrowing cameras off of my family members, haha.

So, I made a skirt! High waisted and vintage inspired, this lovely is out of the most fabulous pink fabric I could find from Hancocks. It has a super wide waistband, a zipper up the side, and the skirt is a circle so it's very flattering.
These pictures aren't as cool as the Grand Canyon or anything, but I'm still figuring out the best places to photograph things here at home. I'm so glad it's not winter so I can take some outside!

Yesterday I recieved my order from yards of a bamboo/lyrca blend (94/6! It's amazing!), for 3.74 a yard. I am so ecstatic and I can't decide what to make! I want it to be very drapey, because this fabric hangs so well and it so luxurious--it also has a sheen, so it catches the light subtley. Maybe a cowl neck, maybe a wrap... haha, here I am thinking as I type. Anyway, that's what is new in my sewing room!!


  1. I love that skirt! Can't wait to see what you make from the bamboo fabric...I was going to order some fabric online about a week ago, but ended up waiting.

  2. Aw, thank you!! Haha, I am almost too afraid to cut into it right now... I don't want to ruin it!

    Mmm, what kind of fabric are you thinking about getting? Printed knits, like you mentioned?


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
