i love it, you look great in it too

here's some more craft blogs for you, watch out bc they're addicting:

1. this one has been less intersting lately but there's tons of good stuff in the archiveshttp://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/

2. this girl lives in nj and is supposed to be well known so maybe you've seen her stuff, never the less her blog is fun to read http://journals.aol.com/jennyeveryday/everyday-is-a-holiday/

3. this is an older woman, i just found her blog, she does a lot of thrifting, and flea marketing, and makes great stuff out of the things she buys, she makes these awesome magnet calanders on cookie sheets, you have to track that down in the archives, i want to make one for myself now http://jenduncan.typepad.com/whats_new/

4. this woman makes nice jewlery and paper crafts, and the photos of her house are especially nice, she also posts inspiration photos a lot http://www.liquidskyarts.com/liquidblog/blogger.html

5. this is a knitting journal, she's very fun to read, although i admitt i've been too lazy to read her lately, but she's really funny http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/

6. this girl is an amazing painter, and i would kill for her house, she has amazing taste, but she's kind of bitchy/snobby lol that's ok though bc i don't talk to her, i just look at her stuff http://theblackapple.typepad.com/inside_a_black_apple/

7. this girl is friends with and similar to the girl above, they live near each other, she doesn't post as much but still has cute stuff http://www.blueberrybandit.typepad.com/

8. and lastly, this girl is a graphic designer and makes stuffed animals, maybe not things i'd make myself but they're fun to look at, she comes up with some really imaginative stuffed animals http://limelady.livejournal.com/

Alexa it's gorgeous! I'm in love with paisley and I love the style of the top, especially the ruffle. I can do almost anything with a sewing machine except a ruffle. I always have to make my mom do it for me. :(

Are you a member of patternreview.com?

If you like to sew, you can go there and see the results of the garments people have made. It's really addicting!!

You can do a ruffle! I know you can!! This is a ruffle with a casing, and then elastic in it - but the gathering in other things that also forms ruffles is the machine basting stitch, with the ends then pulled so it gathers - I'm not sure if that makes sense - but I know you can figure it out!

What are you sewing currently/have finished lately? I'm always looking for new ideas and I'd love to see what you have done!! :)
