    1. Yea, finally made it. Out of fleece from fabric mart fabrics. Made the zipper come up higher and added elastic to the sleeve hem. It gets cold here in Chicago!

    1. Oh, thank you for saying so, Radostin. I'm beginning to fade out on the daily photo-ing though...

  4. I've been gone from blogland for a minute due to the seduction of Instagram, however seeing your creativity explode here is water for the parched soul!! I may have to do a personal challenge similar to what you describe, especially the shoe part. I'm in a rut. Summer layering is always hard, hence the lack of inspiration. I love your ideas and execution. Thank you as always. xoxoxo

  5. Thank you sooo much for sharing!🤗
    I have TG patterns just need to make one. It is really great to see how you expressed yourself with the combinations. Do you overcast or zig zag the the raw edges? They look so nice , not so raggedy.

    1. Hi Judith, They are great to mix up. Some I hem, some I leave raw with a zig-zag stitch above. It depends...

  6. The outfits are amazing. And.. the shoes! How many pairs do you own? Do you re-dye them? They are very cool!

    1. I have no idea how many. But it's more that a dozen. I haven't tried dying them, but I have painted some old and tired ones with acrylic paint I had on hand.
