Preview: Glitz & Glamor

McCall's 5658 view B. This one is going to be embellished some more (yes!)


Glitz & Glamor is the theme of this year's garden party.
Thank goodness because I was able to plow through some of the most questionable pieces in my fabric/thrift store stash.
The party is this weekend in Gary, In.
More to follow...

My kind of post! As an 80's girl at heart, glitz and glamour is where it's at :) . I love virtually all things that sparkle.

In Gary, IN? You will practically be in my backyard. I live in Merrillville, IN. Seriously, I'm minutes from Gary.

Oh man, I LOVE the crazy collar/neckline/fabric necklace on that gold brocade McCalls. Must see more pictures.

Like the dresses, but I couldn't help admiring your sewing area. Is it a room or part of a room? Mine is tiny and unworkable!

Hey Girl,

I just wanted to pass on this locing video that Amaninama posted on her fotki website. I'm not sure how you maintain your locs so if you can't use it perhaps you can pass it on. This is totally doable although I don't latch, I twist but I may switch one to latch this way just to compare it to the rest of my locs.
