Two months ago, we were watching the flower show episode of Downton Abbey on Netflix and I got my first glimpse of the blue and white dress that so many people seemed to be raving about. My initial reaction? "Meh." While I certainly preferred it to Lady Edith's (on which Lady Mary made a condescending remark), I didn't see why there was quite so much fuss. After the episode ended, however, a rather funny thing happened. "Wait! Horizontal bodice lines and vertical ones down the skirt... that actually has potential to be quite flattering!" And so, my obsession was born.
When Debi first posted about "That's Sew Cinematic," I was fairly quick to sign up. I
had have yet to finish the green silk dress from the Oscar challenge on Sew Weekly and I thought this new challenge would give me an excuse. Yeah. That's not happening! But, never fear (ha!), I do still have Cinematic sewing plans. Here's a little sneaky peaky at what's up first.
My, oh my! I am waaay behind! Things became quite busy here after my last post, between preparing for vacation and working on the house/yard. Then, we were off to Texas! Now we're back and it's time for me to play catch up. I'll start with a round-up post of Me-Made-May '12 but, I also have two new things to share so, look for those very soon!
