Crisp falling leaves, a nip in the morning air, the scent of cider and leaf burning…..ahhh….Autumn!
Oh, Holy Moses on Buttered Toast!? Who am I trying to kid- it’s still 9 million degrees and I’m getting corduroy chafe from this dress and if I wear these boots for 2 more minutes my ladylike glistening will make my calves a purpley-black forever!? But I want to sew fall so badly and Sew Weekly is using the Fall Palette challenge as this weeks theme- I want to play, too! So pretend that my forehead is not really dewy and ignore the secret knowledge that I may or may not be foicusing on a popsicle in the distance in one of these pictures. It’s harvest time for the Love of God, get the horn of plenty out and enjoy my Bette Davis-esque Simplicity 2174 cheetah print corduroy frock! I do love this dress- I added the buttons and did little tucks on the sleeves to give it a little ‘Fasten your seatbelts, it’s gonna be a bumpy night!’ feel.
Thank you to my sweet Mr B- he slaved all night getting the computer back up and so he didn’t have to listen to me whine anymore…..about the computer at least.
