SEWING

I made another Hollyburn Skirt (SewaholicPatterns.com)! Be sure to join Katie's (from Inside Number 23) sew-a-long for this pattern, which kicks-off August 1.

Cercei Lanister is one of my favorite characters from the Game of Thrones series — especially because of her wardrobe! One day I got the crazy idea to make an everyday / modern Cercei dress, and this week I made it happen! I blogged about the process, over on my sewing blog, HausOfVoolenvine.com.


Pattern: McCall's M6959
Fabric: Kaufman Manchester Textured Yarn Dye Solid Shirting in Wine and Camel

I also signed up for Craftsy's Couture Finishing Techniques with Alison Smith.
