Burda magazine, sewing, chatting and all the extras

   Gosh, where do I start?! I seem to be overly excited about all that's going on in the sewing community, the good things that is :).... For instance, I signed up for the Burda challenge, hosted by Dawn, who blogs over at "Two on and two off". The challenge is to sew at least one garment a month for 2015 from the Burda Style magazine, but go have a look see and see if you're game. It seems like a lot of fun to me! Now, I have never sewn a Burda Style anything, a pattern or from their magazine.. It's a little intimidating; however, I would like to really move a little out of my comfort zone this year.

Keeping warm in my faux fur and midi pencil skirt: Simplicity 2285

  This project has been on my to do list since forever! I actually purchased fabric for this in 2013 and butchered the faux fur so bad, that I couldn't even salvage the vest. The dang lining of the vest confused the crap out of the 2013 Candice, but see the 2015 Candice handled the lining like a champ lol! And by champ, I mean that I lined it my way but hey that's the beauty in sewing, right? That there is more than one way to get it done!
