Hello! We just got back from an extended weekend trip in Yosemite with a pair of close friends who bought us there as their wedding present. It is so beautiful there! The snow was melting, wild flowers were blooming and waterfalls were gushing. I had never been to yosemite with my husband and we had never been there during heavy waterfall season. We hiked an 8 mile trail through forests, cliffs, and lots of waterfalls, and I was sore for 3 days afterwards! Though it was so worth it — I still can remember looking back at one of the water falls (the mist trail is right next to the water fall) and seeing it falling, all the mists, the greenery, and the rainbow arching half way through it.
But now I am back! I do have a completed piece made from my husband’s old shirt. And right now I am working on this from burda magazine:
Did I ever mention that I hate sewing darts? this dress is full of darts! But I like the shape it created. I used a testing fabric (silky polyester), but I did buy some stretch cotton fabric from fabric.com, so maybe I will make a real one!
Anyway, the last giveaway wasnt too successful, not sure if its because of my extra requirements or ridiculously small size. So I have decided, I will give it away as long as you enter a comment, theres no need to go to kiva and make a loan — just consider it sometimes in the future. If you can fit the purple dress and still would like it, go ahead and leave a comment there!
Today I would like to give away this zebra skirt for any of the punk rock girls out there, I made it to enter the wenlan competition but it was just not me:
waist: around 26
hip: around 35
material: fake suede
Leave a comment and specifically tell me that you would like it if you want it!
