yellow party dress

I've decided to start an Etsy shop as soon as I have a few solid new pieces. After college I am going to try to open up my own shop if all goes well (fingers crossed!) Anyways..last night was interesting to say the least. Michael and I powered through making a gorgeous yellow dress in three hours so I could wear it out to some (lame) party. I was really excited about it because of my seams being so neat and clean. I was the only one in something that didn't resemble an outfit that didn't entitle a funeral outing. The party was very boring because I only had one beer and stood around as strange drunk people surrounded me. Two girls decided to hump guys for a good hour on the couch and I kept getting the dirty stink eye from flannel wearing girl. Weird, very weird. To say the least I suppose I am not the partying type.
Michael and I had a mini photoshoot last night. We were supposed to be taking picture of the new clothes for Burda but that was a failure because he was drunk and too silly haha. It ended up being blurred images of my crazy looking faces in outfits I made. Today I plan on finishing Riley's dress, andd having rehearsals which I am not to fond of right now..(rehearsals that is..i hate them!)
I am really excited for after spring break because I am getting the other room when our roommate moves out. I am planning on making it a sewing room complete with a pink desk haha. I have been deciding on how to decorate it for a while now. It'll be nice to finally have my own space in this apartment.

here is the "Gretchen Dress" better pictures laterr.

lil grey riding hood?

sewing has possessed me and i can't sleep with out dreaming about zippers. i absolutely love it and honestly making my own clothes is much more fun. it makes me happy too. i had a dream the other night which i actually want to make happen in real life. i was walking around this cafe/boutique thing..after a while in this dream i realized it really was mine! it was so detailed and real that i knew this wasn't some silly thing i dreamed about. it is something i want to make happen. aside from the sewing obsession i am trying very hard to stop eating so many sweets but these donuts are too too tempting. i am trying to lose a few pounds since i have put on weight from moving out/stress. wish me luck on that ha. we will see if i am successful.

i made this really cute/quick project the other day because i was obsessed with my lil red hood from my halloween costume. i thought it'd be fun to wear this in the spring when it is raining and what not! anyways i dig the ruffles, hood and flower. so sad that this excites me.
