New Blog Name and Other Updates!
Some of you may have noticed that I changed the name of the blog to something that I felt fit my style and personality a lot more! It took awhile to decide on something I was completely happy about, but here it is the American Girl Dreaming!
I have had a little bit of a break from blogging, but I have been very busy sewing and planning and more!
Fall Palette Challenge: I plan to do a review of my Fall Palette Challenge sometimes next week after I get pictures of my final item the Cream Cord Clover pants.
November: The picture at the top of this post is the Cherry Meringue Dres image from Modcloth.com. I was so excited when they announced this dress would dayview in time for the holidays. I love the scallop like ruffles with the pretty red waistband! However, I guess things didn't work out and they won't be carrying it for this holiday season - huge bummer. Long story short, this cherry meringue was stuck in my head and started work on a Meringue skirt for the new Colette patterns book in a beautiful red bottom weight poplin and wouldn't you know I kept calling it my Cherry Meringue Skirt! I'll have pictures of that up next week as well as my new Taffy blouse!
Other news I have several projects cut and on the table a beautiful linen asian inspired floral Peony dress (Colette patterns), a white cotton sateen Pastille dress (Colette patterns), and I have reopened my (UFO) the Vintage Vogue Floral house dress.
Another big news event and this is in the beginning stages, but I have been busy designing and drafting a dog clothes line brought on by my experiences and disappointments when making a coat for both Pandora and Gizmo. More to come on that later!
