Bell Bottoms

I cannot believe how long its been since I have been on Pattern Review. The last review I did was back in November. WOW.
Anyway the grand daughters were here for summer so you know they always get me in my sewing room. We had such a good time. I think I have created a mini me. I started sewing at 7 shes a little older but at the right age. She has the bug. I am so happy for her.

So we made bell bottoms while they were here. Even for the little one.  So the oldest one wanted bell bottoms. We made them very 70's look. See pattern review McCalls 7198. 

 Of course we made an infinity scarf to match. Amiya where are my pictures of your pants😍?

My Leopard Funky Find

I haven't had a chance to get in my sewing room lately. We all know what I do when I cant sew... Yep I shop. H&M is one of my favorite places to shop. They always have great sales. We went to NYC to celebrate my 60th BD in May. Yep big 60. I found this coat on clearance. It was only 20.00 and there is no tax in NY. Boy did I need it. I carried tank tops and sandals on this trip, forgetting that although hot ATL was really hot, NYC was not.

A few weeks ago I decided to finally read this InStyle mag I had lying around. I was browsing through the pages, and low-in-behold there was a photo of  Freida Pinto by her pinto, with my leopard coat on. Of course hers was a "Dior calfskin coat" my coat is just 100% cotton, heavy cotton though, and fully lined.

Hers probably cost "price upon request".We all know I could not have made this coat for 20.00. Gonna wear my coat with some jeans 2. After all 60 is the new 45...
