I have been a busy girl in the Sewers Bordello! I’m at the under 40 days mark for the annual fall Disney Trip and trying to get the last of the mouse sewing done. You know I’m not a big tourist t-shirt gal- I prefer a frisky top and some capri pants for my mouse trips, then at night I give mickey a little leg with a sun dress and my clompy sandals. So this is the 2nd to the last of my new duds for Mickey.
Mccalls 6604- a pattern with many wonderous options. I am intrigued by a cowl with a collar, that could happen for fall- right now I’m sporting the little…what are they? They aren’t sleeves, they aren’t lovely shoulder awnings, they just allude to sleeves, actually. Perfect for Disney as I elbow my way past children to get to Beast before they do! “Get back, kiddies, I’m full of over-priced snacks and on my way to Dumbo!”Look! I sparkle! I made no changes to this pattern, I didn’t even take it in much- door to door it was a 3 hour event. *Now that time includes, checking on that noise that sounded like a cornered cat, scrolling thru the premium channels looking for Colin Firth movies, dropping the bobbin box, etc. You know, the usual sewing folderol at Palazzo Barnes.
In case you can’t see them, I am wearing cheetah ballet flats to complete the ensemble- a butterfly cheetah combo!These pictures are from our afternoon at the Mominlaws house- the dachshunds ran their little legs off on her 2 story deck. they love Grandmas house- they ran thru her many acres and drank from her many toilets. Good times. Good times. I’m so glad that I got my special prezzie from Anne this week- Before I head to Mouse house- I hope to read it and make copious notes during the lengthy drive- now that would entail willpower to wait, so I’ll bet you’ll be hearing about my time with Winifred Aldrich long before then! I should be drinking tea for that, don’t you think? I think that Bruder and I should we wearing lacy fichus and using a lorgnette while we read. Ok, that could turn into Bruder eating his fichu and Liesl burying his lorgnette, but we shall try to maintain the appropriate dignity it deserves. Did you note the fabulous length of silky, cloudy blue? I am loving that!! I don’t know what it’s fate holds, but I just want to wave it and prance Isadora Duncan style, you know? If you don’t routinely tune in to Anne’s blog- Mercury- Handmade Fashion she is very skilled and shares much knowledge, [please do – you will enjoy!
