OH - BAMA!!!

Well, I think it's fitting that my first post, after a VERY long drought, is to celebrate the Inauguration!

I don't have much time to write as we are headed to the concert (with 750,00 of our closest friends!) but I wanted to share the dress (although my spouse continues to call it a costume!) that I made for J & J's "unofficial inaugural gala"!

I re-fashioned it from a XXXL commemorative T-shirt - using some dupioni silk that I had in my fabric stash for the yoke and sleeves. McCall's pattern - M5576 was my base pattern and tweaked it as I worked!

A great way to start an historic weekend!!!



YES WE CAN!!!

This is so cool - regardless of one's personal politics!
