I did it!

I finally got layers to work in Paint.Net. I've been working on this for weeks to no avail and then miraculously it worked this time so simply I can't believe I ever had problems with it. Thanks so much to Em over at Em In The Studio for her post about Paint.Net free download and how to make these groovy garment mock ups. I don't really have much else to say other than it is definitely time to abandon Summer sewing around here and get to my long list of Fall/Winter projects. First up McCall's 5752 in a nice fall polyester knit I picked up at Hancock's for 40% off.

Is this cool or WHAT!!

I'll post pics of the finished dress as soon I can.

Happy Sewing

I am such a pattern junkie, buying new patterns makes me feel like I actually own the clothes. The Vogue Holiday/Winter 2009 patterns are out and I did see a few that caught my eye. Although I don't know how many I'll actually get to this season, I will definitely pick these up so that I can capture the possibilities.

V1150 - I like this because it's simple, chic and sexy. Give me some tights and a nice shoe boot and I'm ready to go.

V1147 - I'm actually pretty ambivalent about this one but I think with the right fabric and embellishment it can be pretty stylish.

V1143 - What really needs to be said about this other than this is HOT!

v1138 - This is definitely a great party dress and I can see it in a nice jewel tone for the holidays.
What about you? Do you see anything you like? Did I miss any of your favorites?
