Just one of those days....

I've been busy back in the studio the last few days and things haven't been going that great. I'm having a mind block for ideas. I'm just putting too much pressure on myself. I really really want to just get things done and it feels like there's never enough time in the day. Ever have that feeling? Well on the bright side, I have a few orders for New Kids dresses and I've been making dog outfits for the Paw Spa that my daughter works at. So business is good :) I made this cute sailor pouch yesterday, along with another of my Beatles totes which will be a gift for a friend.

SF Fashion Feud

Last nights fashion feud was a ton of fun! I was very fortunate to have been chosen as one of the competitors. I came poised and confident, ready to win it! I had my design idea in mind, but with just an hour and over 100 people watching me live, I let my nerves get the best of me! Despite the loss, I still gained a ton of exposure. I was interviewd by SF Indie Fashion and a few bloggers, so U can't beat that! The judges were great and they gave me props for making seperates. I Started out making shorts and a short sleeve top, and when the shorts came up "short" I tossed them and started over. That is what cost me. I ended up making a pencil skirt and at the 15 minute mark I was finishing the top and thinking how fast the time flew by. Now I know why Im always wondering where the time went when Im sewing at home! Heres a picture of my model and I. You can check my flickr for more pics from the event, and check out the organizers of the event, and sponsored by Scion. be on the lookout for my interview and others from the event at
