New Friend, and Once Upon a Thread garment.

So, it has been a while since I have posted and I have to say that I have been alittle busy.  Not crazy busy, just alittle.
I did make a decision on sergers and so I introduce to you, Pearl
She is a beauty.  Got her from allbrands.com and got a great deal.  In a package, I got the serger, a carrying case, extra feet, 12 white cone thread, and extra feet.  She works great and can go through some thick fabric.  I used her to repair some jeans and she was able to sew through the hem.   Love!

Unfortunately, I have only gotten one outfit done for the Once Upon the Thread Sew along. 
We Help Daddy is the book that I choose to make an outfit from.  I just love the illustrations in this book.

 I have been trying to do alot of ReCreating when it comes to kids clothes and this outfit was no exception.  I found this large stripes mens button down shirt and figured it would work.
 So after alot of cutting, this is the dress that I came up with.  The only problem was that it is alittle short for a dress. 

I decided to make up some cut pants to go with dress/top to make it wearable.   I wish that I had a little girl to have model it.  But it is a size 1 so I am out of luck.   
Now on to the next project.  I am planning on putting together a website to sale some of the outfits that I have been putting together.  The name is going to be Alexander Alter & Create.  I am going to get some   bodyforms size 1,3,5,7 to help with the photographing of the outfits.   Stay tuned.

Brooke Snow Workshop

So, I have come across the photographer Brooke Snow blog and love all that she does.  She teaches online classes to improve your camera skills.  Right now they are not in my budget, so I noticed that there was a give away on this website.  Now, I never win anything off another blog, but I couldn't let the chance to win get by.   Here is fingers crossed.
