Love It or Leave It: Neon

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

So the object of today's Love It or Leave It session is:
Neon made it's comeback several seasons ago and has become a staple in many closets (from children to teens to women).  But are you still loving it?  Is it still as fun as it once was?  Are you planning on another delightfully neon summer or are you seeking more subdued tones?

Project Sewn Season 4: The Weekly Themes!

Monday, April 14, 2014

Today is the day we get to announce the themes for next season!!!
You've already seen the lineup of fabulous ladies for this season now see what their weekly challenges are!

Week #1 (May 5th): The Leading Ladies Challenge---make a look inspired by a leading lady from the movies.  (This doesn't mean it has to be an exact replica, although it can be, but it only needs to be "inspired" by your feature film leading lady!)

Week #2 (May 12th): Floral Frenzy Challenge--florals are all the rage this spring, so make an outfit that is inspired by this Spring trend.

Week #3 (May 19th): Going Global Challenge---make an outfit inspired by a country.  (Again, there is no need to make a native can be a look inspired by the look, feel, culture, food, architecture, etc. from the country of your choice.)

Week #4 (May 26th): Signature Style Week---make an outfit that is all your personal signature style.  (Showcase your style, your strengths, and your personal sewing preferences.)

So there you have it...the weekly challenges.
And we do hope that you will be sewing along with us. 
As usual there will be weekly link parties to share your work in as week as weekly sew along winners and prizes.
We're ready to get this season started and hope that you will all come along for the ride!

Choose and Icon: 80's Teen Idol Addition

Friday, April 11, 2014

Today's choose edition of "Choose and Idol" is a 1980's teen idol version with two of my favorites from back in the day:
Debbie Gibson
So let's get to it!
Which teen idol had the best style?
Tiffany with her long, red feather locks and signature pegged jeans and denim jackets.
Debbie with her black hats, shoulder pads, blazers....and of course, her electric youth.
Roughly the same age...totally the same genre.
Which one is your 80's teen (style) idol?

I was just out shopping for a pair of sandals and everywhere I went there were Gladiator sandals.
