Happy Halloween!

Our town is trick or treating a day early because we live in the Bible belt and most will be in Church during trick or treat hours on Sunday....  I bought a cheap halloween wig from Walmart and I am finally getting to wear my "Jackie Kennedy" outfit.... I am a flight attendant from the 60's. 
My daughter is an 80's punk rocker girl....  We had fun doing hair & makeup!!

As you can see, my English Bulldog wants to go too! LOL Hope everybody has a great Halloween!

What a Deal!

I decided to make a quick stop at the Community Thrift Store just to see what they had... sometimes they have some nice, useable fabric, notions, patterns... it's pot luck as to what you'll find! Anyways, I lucked up on some really nice vintage looking material!!  5 1/4 yds for $2.50!!! 

Looks like something from the 50's....??  Anyways, it will be transformed into something nice for my closet!

Inspired by Jackie Kennedy...

This is the very first complete outfit I have sewn in my new sewing space - Thank you my sweet Hubby! The jacket and skirt are from NewLook 6290 and the pillbox hat instructions came from  The material is some kind of rayon or polyester blend and has very small gold threads running through it... I thought it was the perfect color and feel for a 60's outfit. Here is the picture that inspired me... it is actually Katie Holmes playing the part of Jackie Kennedy and I just love the look!
