Rock Your Runway!

                                                Source: via Meghan on Pinterest

So how do you like the new blog design?  I am soooo loving it!  Huge thanks to Kayla of Freckles in April!  She is so awesome!  Anyhow, I am super excited to be bringing back Sew Crafty Saturday! And I have got a brand spankin' new {and fabulous} button for it!  So be sure to drop by Saturday and link up what you have been working on lately!  

Now, I have not one, but TWO new features I am starting.  I so love fashion!  Always have.  Always will.  I can't help it.  It just runs in the family.  Anyhow, I have  been wanting to include fashion more on my blog for a very long time now.  So I have come up with two ideas to do that!  The first is going to be a what I wore party called....yep, you guessed it!  

Rock Your Runway!

Where we will come together every Wednesday to show off what we wore, new hairstyles or makeup techniques we tried, etc.

The next idea I have is called Fashion & Flair Fridays.   One of my favorite things about sewing and making patterns is that I can look at a dress that costs thousands of dollars and make it myself for a fraction of the cost...of course, I can't think of a reason {besides my wedding, that is} that I would have to wear a knockoff of a dress that costs thousands of dollars, but you get the point.  Just like with the Little Nora Jane dress, on sale it was still I think $70!  Seriously? $70 on sale for a couple yards of knit fabric???? No thank you!  

So, I have decided to start a series every Friday of tutorials of knockoffs of designer clothes!  I will write some {or most, if need be} of the tutorials,  but what I would REALLY, REALLY LOVE, is to feature some you wonderful talented ladies!  So, if you are interested, please submit your knockoff  idea!

What I am looking for:

~An original, thorough, and well explained tutorial with clear, well lit photos

When you submit your idea, please email me:

~a picture of the garment you want to do a knockoff of
~a link to two of your previous tutorials

Woohoo!  Am I the only one who is seriously excited???  Oh, oh and don't forget Project Runway tonight!!!! yipeee!  Today is awesome!  The sun is even shining here for the first time in weeks!  Love it, love it!  Now come on ladies! Let's "make it work!"  {Bree that was for you!  wink wink}

Oh, oh, oh! {can you tell I am really excited right now???)  AND I almost forgot to tell you about Bella Before & After's new Healthy & Happy Party.  That will also be on Wednesday's.  She should be posting details soon so be sure to keep an eye out for it!  It will be all about motivating each other to live healthier, exercising, diet, etc.  And also, a place for us to share our triumphs and support one another!
