An Outfit, a Persian, and a Project

vintage sweater- thrifted, Goodwill Palmdale
vintage side-zip jeans- Ebay (I think)
saddle shoes- Wasteland Burbank

Well here we are! A mundane Tuesday. Tried something new with the woopty-doos (I think that is the technical term for whatever I have going on with my roll-pin curl thingies in my hair) today. I was prepared for rain- but it's bright and sunny out now! Poop! OH let's just close the blinds, love on Leonard the cat, and pretend it's pouring with a cup of tea!
My greatest accomplishment of the day thus far has been making some progress on my gigantic sewing project. I've challenged myself to sew a dress...since then it's taken a couple of weeks to decide on a pattern, buy the pattern, think about fabric, look at fabric, and now finally- buy the fabric. So now we are ready to cut it out- and knowing myself- that should only take...oh...a couple months :) It's been a long time since I've sewn anything bigger than a doll size dress, so I think I have some fear that is holding me back. I know I just have to suck it up and dive in!
*I love this pattern- it's a total knock-off of the ever-popular and coveted Swirl!*
