Happy Birthday To Me!!!

I noticed on two blogs that I enjoy reading, each mentioned that yesterday was their birthday (Happy Birthday Erica B.'s D.I.Y. Style and StacySews). So I thought I would share with you that today happens to be my birthday (it's even noted on PR's home page as "tcusic"- I feel so special). Today is also the first day of fall.

I would love to be able to say that for my birthday, I completed my entire fall/winter 2007 wardrobe. Actually, I could say that but it would be a total lie, a huge untruth, a gross exaggeration of reality.... In other words, I have not gotten much sewing done.

I did however, pack up my summer clothes and put them away. Yeah, yeah, I know, I am just procrastinating.

Speaking of fall/winter wardrobe, I have found another outfit I would like to sew. It's what Mandy Moore is wearing on the cover of Lucky magazine.

For the skirt I would either draft my on knock-off or use the skirt from V2951. I would only need to smooth out the pleats in the front, widen the waistband/yoke and lengthen the skirt.

For the top, I think M5336 with some modifications would be a good choice. I'm not sure what I will do about the short sweater. Maybe I will hand knit one.

Thank you so much and the same back at you. So many crafters with September birthdays it seems.

Thank you, Sharon. It's never too late to send a well-wish to someone. I think it was so kind of you - 'cause you could have just said "too bad, I was too late." So thanks again.
