Truth be told I was hoping that this weeks Sew Weekly challenge would be something that I didn't really care to do since I was out of town most of the week. No such luck. This week's challenge is to sew something inspired by your favorite American designer. While I would have a hard time listing say ten American designers I have not trouble naming my favorite. Betsey Johnson hands down is my favorite designer in the whole entire world. I've never actually owned or even tried on anything from any of her lines but I love her work just the same.
When we got back Thursday night I started looking at the summer ready to wear line and decided to make an homage to the tail-feather dress for Emily. I made myself a dress as well with this skirt in mind because Emily has been saying that we need matching dresses lately. Actually that we want matching dresses which makes me laugh because this part of the we could do without them but oh well she is thrilled. Trust me when I tell you my dress looks better in person then in pictures or at least I think it does.
So here we are standing in the back yard,
Chez Ami that is baby pink with white stripes. I wish I had more time this week but these were fun just the same.
