I just finished redesigning my blog and moving it back over to Blogger. Yep, I designed it all myself!! I had to change the cartoon of me a little because 2 weeks ago I got my hair completely chopped and she originally had long flowing hair!
Do you always have the urge to wear something new everytime you go out? I certainly do, and of course most of the time, I will end up making it. Sometimes I give myself a ridiculous time window to complete and that was the case with this evening out. Luckily I had this New Look pattern in my stash and a remnant of ITY print fabric that I had been dying to make something out of.
Last night was dinner at a vegetarian restaurant called Ubuntu in downtown Napa (delicious!!). Then it was off to see Ottmar Liebert at the Napa Valley Opera House. He's a flamenco guitarist concert so all I could think of was that I must wear something bold and what is more bold than red?
Unfortunately, there was not enough material for a dress and barely enough material for this top! I had to shorten the arms considerably. Luckily I could lengthen it 2 inches for my long torso. Very easy to put together and I used my serger cover stitch for all of the hems. It still ended up feeling a skosh short on me, but atleast I could finally do something with this fabric!
