The weather has been in the 70’s here in Tucson, AZ lately so I guess that means it’s ummm…winter? We had a very mild winter last year and it looks like the same will happen again this year. Sorry for all of you who are suffering through the Polar Vortex yet again while we have beautiful weather! But believe me, I’m totally jealous of you during the summer months when it’s too hot to do anything.
I should be working on some winter sewing, but I guess since we don’t have a real winter, summer sewing works just as well. I made yet another Franken-pattern sun dress, much like my Dress of All Things Rock.
It’s basically a tank top (McCalls 6559) attached to a circle skirt (McCalls 6754). I made it up the same way as last time, but this time I used Freya (my serger) and it was super fast!
The fabric is from GirlCharlee.com and it seems a bit softer than the other 30% stretch jerseys I’ve ordered from them. I couldn’t resist the cute Japanese-esque flower pattern.
I probably won’t be wearing this until the spring time even though I could get away with wearing it during our warm winter. But I’d rather bundle up and pretend it’s cold outside with a hot cup o’ wassail and rum.
And what’s a post about a circle skirt without some twirly pictures?
Oh, and that crazy red lipstick I’m wearing is F-Bomb by Urban Decay. I’m a big fan of UD’s eye shadows and lid primer, so I got a sample of the lipstick from Sephora. It’s the first time I’ve tried their lipstick and HOLY MACARONI is it awesome! I got this crazy burst of color with just one swipe!
OK well that about does it for this post. I’ll leave you with a picture of me posing with our ginormous grapefruits, courtesy of our chickens (providing the tree with natural fertilizer…)
