Life with an autistic son, two daughters, a husband, and a full time job can get pretty hectic! Making things helps me maintain SANITY.

Texture - Denim, Linen, and Lace
I almost didn't complete an outfit this week. Work has been intense. Sam has been pretty intense too. One thing I tried to do for sewing along with Project Run and Play was to use different textures. I used very little basic quilting cotton (really just week one) and I worked to branch out a little. This week I used stretch denim for Maya's wide leg pink pants- my serger handled it well!. Her top is embroidered white linen. It has a raglan-style sleeve edged with lace. I added lace to the bottom as well. I made a wide neck that I gathered with dark pink elastic with a tiny lace edge to it. Maya looks very sweet in it. My signature style? I like to make comfortable pieces from fun fabrics. I like simple details. And, as I found out these past few weeks, I really like trying different types of fabric.
