Death & Taxes, Dresses & Purses

Hello sweet friends. I am stuck in a corner of my bedroom today working on taxes. AGHHH! But I am taking time out for a shower, a LARGE cup of coffee, and to show you what I've been up to - other than Turbo Tax.

Remember the beautiful orange suede I'd acquired? Well this is only a small part of it. I'm excited that a great deal remains to play with yet again. Every single iota (except the lining) is made from recycled materials. Uh-huh.

Remember also that I was excited about making a dress after so many years? I couldn't find anything that struck my fancy in Vogue or McCalls, but New Look had this. Denim is popular this year, so I think I'll try to pick up some lightweight chambray to make the "B" view. I'll make it a little shorter - right above the knee and it'll be so cute with my little cardigan and sandals.

Enough stalling. Must. Do. Taxes.

  2. I just can't get over the gorgeous bags you are making! That is so awesome. The dress is darling. I want to find the time to make myself a couple of things for the summer too. I haven't sewn clothing in eons! Mailed our taxes yesterday....but we don't do our own. Have fun!

  3. Wow I'm super impressed by the bag that you made-- it's so pretty and I'm loving all the details you put into it. The fact that it is made from mostly recycled materials is an added bonus!

    I feel your pain on the taxes. I started mine this past weekend and need to sit down and finish them sometime this week. Ugh.

  6. I hate taxes. I'm glad the coffee took the edge off of doing them.
