Five Favorites (Vol. 1)


I'm linking up with Hallie's blog for a bit of favorite-ing fun.

1) Style of skirt to alter:



These are the best!  If you like to do a bit of thrifting like me and generally need to make things smaller, this is the type of skirt to look for: zipper and details (vent) in the center back or center front, a simple silhouette, and forgiving fabric (this one was a loose-weave, wool blend).  I took it down almost four sizes by working on just the side seams.

2)  {Michigan} fabric store:


If you live within a two hour radius of Royal Oak, go there for me sometime, okay?  They have a stunning selection of formal fabrics and everything else you could hope for in a high-end fashion and home dec. fabric store.  I got my lace for my wedding dress there.  Gratuitous wedding dress pictures (albeit the only ones I can find on this computer)...




3) Vintage sewing related possession:


Aren't they fabulous?  They were my grandmother's.  Unfortunately, time has rendered them incapable of "Pinking Perfection" so perhaps it was false advertising?  Here's a picture of my grandmother in her prime:


She modeled a little bit, though I think this was one of those I'm always this awesome photographs.  In a couple of her pictures, she bears a striking resemblance to Jenny Lee in Call the Midwife...

4)  My current favorite tv series that I will probably only get to watch on Netflix and will probably never get to see in it's entirety:



But really, who doesn't like this show right now?  I have to brace myself emotionally to watch it.  You?

5)  And on a final and totally unrelated note.  I. Heart. Zac Brown Band.  Weirdo music videos and all.




The End.

Thanks for stopping by ya'll!  Head on over to Moxie Wife to join in!
