  13. Haha, adorable outfit! I just came across your blog from Sew Weekly. I love that big chunky belt with the skirt, it looks great! And fabric dye/fabric remover? I just had a disaster with that stuff where I dyed some of our curtains a few weeks ago... Ugh, oh man, that stuff is killer! Yikes!

  15. Soon as I saw your first pic Arnie's Terminator voice came on in my head saying "I need your tights, your skirt and your fabulous belt."

    Might have to make that skirt. OK if I copy your contrast pocket binding??

  16. That outfit is truly adorable, but should you be drinking while breathing in fumes? Never mind, I'm sure you know what you are doing. Carry on with your bad self!
