A referral for you

I have found a new blog that I love. Erin at Dress a Day is a fabric and sewing genius. She really has the best clothes.

But what I love most are the stories she tells. Go over and click on the Secret Lives of Dresses. Each one is a little vignette about a woman from the perspective of the dress she wears. The stories are beautiful and poignant and I wish I could read a whole book like this.

Erin has inspired me to sew my own dress, although I am procrastinating my project just a tad. I know I'll get to it, I just need to find the perfect fabric. When real spring hits (we had snow again) I know I will get tired of yarn and will want to move on to something lighter.

Anyone else follow a bunny trail that led you to a great blog?

That is a great blog. Perfect timing. My daughter just picked out fabric to make her Easter dress...her first major sewing project. Hopefully, we get it done on time... :)

Thanks for the link, I just took a peek but I'll look longer later.

Funny, I'm getting ready to pick up some skirt patterns for spring and summer!
