Mirror Shot and Go Vote!


Here's a really crappy mirror shot of me after work today in my very extremely messy sewing room, complete with my work badge dangling off my skirt waist. You're welcome. ;-)

I am in love with this outfit and apparently others like it a lot too since I received a nice amount of unsolicitations. Woot! What a nice way to start a week. Besides needing more Jenna cardis, I need more of these skirts. I ended up tucking in the underlayer tank, which works well I think. Gives me a waist too.

Now please go have a look at the Curvy Sewing Collective's entries into the Wrapalong Sewalong and vote for your favorite here. I won't lie by saying I hope it's for me cuz the top three vote-getters each get a $50 gift certificate from Smuggler's Daughter for fabric, and you all KNOW how fabric deprived I've been. :-)

But even if not for me, please go vote. There are many pretty entries and they all deserve a look.

And go vote in the mid-terms too. Alex and I will be heading to a local polling place tomorrow after work for early voting. Love that option. The only thing better would be an app for that.

  2. We voted yesterday morning, and the guy running against desantis was at our polling place for a while - intelligent, nice, and thoughtful.

  4. That's a great length for a cardigan and the color is nicely matched. Thanks for reminding us about voting at CSC!

  5. Debbie, I loved the look of that outfit on your dressmaker dummy but it looks even more spectacular on you. It really is a beautiful outfit with amazing colours. You wear it well. I might have to try to copy this.......

  8. Oregon has Vote by Mail which you can do at any time up to the election date. Which frees me from having to read political mail, political phone calls, political craziness if I vote early.

    I like this outfit too - great colors on you.

  9. What a cute outfit -- I love that flippy skirt! Thanks for modeling:) It looks great on you. There is such a difference between seeing clothing being worn vs. on a dressmaker's dummy.

  10. A great outfit, Debbie! It's the colors *and* the length of that cardi, I think.
