Sew what?!

Do you ever have those days where you feel like doing absolutely nothing except lounge in your pajamas, have some hot chocolate and read a book? Well, I've never actually had one of those days, per say, but I woke up to clouds this morning and decided it was a lazy day.


Kind of ironic that yesterday I posted pictures of the sunny weather here! *sigh* Don't you love the ever-changing Canadian weather? ..Yeah, me neither.

Anyways, I spent most of the day (well, half, because I decided to sleep in late and thus wasted the morning) sewing. Actually, the power went out for about an hour, so I stopped sewing then too. And I stopped for dinner and lunch... Still, I did quite a bit of sewing..


I finished up these bright harem pants. I'm thinkin' that I should have stuck with basic black, but you never know when your in a mood for bright, red pants! ..Right? :) They're really comfy. My sister calls them "poop pants." I don't know how much use they'll get, but they were pretty fun to make!


I also whipped up that puffy Ronald Macdonald-and-nameless-friends skirt!


I'm somewhat addicted to making these skirts (I think I've worn them in most of my outfit posts already!). I've made six in the past month and I bought fabric for two more! Anyways, I figure I'll get so sick of making them, that I won't make anymore. Trust me, it's reallllyy addicting!


Here's a dress I sewed a few months ago:

Denim and Tulle. The tulle's like a sea foam/ mint green. Inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker's Oscar dress.


Rosettes = Good times (NOT!)


I've never actually worn this dress. Anyone want to invite me to a nice, fancy party? ...Really? ...Aww, you're so nice! Thanks for the invite.
(Yes, I just had a conversation with my imaginary friend. Jealous? You wish you talked to imaginary friends!)

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed! I know I'm no pro sewer, so please do not critisize my lack of skills! Please and thank-you.

Lastly, thanks again (I know I say this every time, but you have no idea!) to all my lovely commenters, especially those who come back and comment again :) Special shoutout to thetrendydwarf because he always leaves lovely comments - check out his blog! And shoutout to anyone else who has commented. You all rock! Oh, and to my 11 followers! YAY - you guys rock, of course!

Have a lovely evening :)

P.S. Any Project Runway fans out there? I am! America, Australia, Canada (started Philippines, and the British version but never finished).. Anyways, I'm watching Project Runway Canada Season 2 right now. Sonny is so adorable! But don't tell me what happens, I haven't finished! I don't know why this tidbit of information has been shared to you all, it seemed relevant.. in some way.. maybe.. okay.. bye..

Oh Em Gee! I hate this rainy weather! You guys too?! Well..at least I am not the only one suffering! A day spent sewing must be a very entertained day..really! I love the dress you sewed! I could see something neon being worn with it but you should take some pictures of how you would wear it and post them up! That was just a suggestion obviously.
