Kicking Ass!

It's no secret that I'm a diehard Democrat. In fact, when a college prof accused me of being a bleeding heart liberal, my response was, 'you say that like it's a bad thing!' My mom and I are headed to Nevada next week to do some ass-kicking, or literally to remind other registered Democrats to get out and vote! And I plan on wearing this lovely item to show 'em I mean business!

Violet Haze

So I'm still in the 'it's my birthday, so I can do whatever' mode, even though yesterday was my big day. As in, it's over, move on! But no...I had to test out my birthday tools (presents to myself, the best kind really!). Big massive cutting mat? Yes please. It was delicious to just roll that rotary cutter anywhere without worry! New pattern? A little twee so far, I need to punk it up a bit. Here, see for yourself:

Another Simplicity

So I'm cheating a bit here, I actually finished this a little while ago but never blogged it.

The fabric was thrifted for about $2 or $3, not kidding! I love my favorite thrift store, which I will refuse to name 'cuz it's getting too damn crowded already. Just know that it is a magical place where you always leave with exactly what you need, whether you realize it or not! Anyway, the fabric is a fun grey seersucker.
I piped the collar, added interfacing behind the invisible zip since the fabric is lightweight, and cut it a bit looser around the waist than the last two so it would feel more casual.

Also, I matched stripes like a fiend!
