Costume Time!

Everything Else|Comments Off on Costume Time!

It’s time for my 4th Annual Halloween Costume Idea a Day! Each day, leading up to Halloween, I will present you with a costume idea. Most of these require very little sewing, just some assembly and a little creativity. They also work with things you might have around the house or pieces you might use again. They are great for last minute parties and suitable for boys, girls, kids or adults. Please leave a comment if you use one of my ideas! I love to know I am helping out.

You can take your babydoll and $%#@ it!

Everything Else|1 Comment

Dear Clothing Designers;
What were you thinking? The babydoll style top looks cute on a sum total of 2 types of people on the entire planet – anyone under the age of 4 and anyone within 4 months of their due date. I spent the entire morning trying to figure out if I was in the maternity section of the department store or not. Baby doll dresses, jackets, sweaters, t-shirts & turtlenecks! Shame on you. Are you all out there having a good laugh? And while we are at it, when did I slip off the end of the size chart? I understand that the average size of women has been going up but I am now forced in to the juniors department to find a skirt in my size! As I am not interested in showing off my butt crack, belly button or bra straps, I don’t find this really an acceptable alternative.
