My sewing machine has been acting quite friendly and here are a couple of the more recent results of such acts of kindness.
I was soon to be attending wedding in Tegus and I insisted on a strapless dress with boning. I wanted it in a cheesy pink because I never went to prom. I had to torture myself with little food so the zipper would close. I didn’t get ONE decent picture of me in the dress, so please ignore the face. It did not come out quite as planned. Next morning, sisters and I hopped on a bus back home.
Before I continue, let me formally introduce you to Diana. I have already talked about her before. Youngest sister, trouble, flaming red hair. I love her with ALL my heart! However, I am SO not kidding on the ‘trouble’ part.
I am trying to beat my sewing instructor’s time record for making a skirt, and Diana gets to keep my trials. Here’s her favorite. She wore it to school today. As for me and my recent purchases let me emphasize ONCE more on one word: thrifting! I was going to come up with a (darn good) excuse like “I’m on a budget so I thrift”, and I am on a budget but please: I thrift because I LOVE it. Period.
La Ceiba is INCREDIBLY HOT right now. Skimpy clothes and the beach are pretty much requirements for summer survival (we have two seasons down here, rainness and summer, and I make words up during both). So anyway, when thrifting, I keep that in mind.
