I sewed, no photo yet--Loes Hinse Europeans

Finally, I finished a quick project. Bought some gray fabric from Fabricmart Fabrics--it is suit weight with light blue pinstripes and a little lycra in the content. I made a pair of Loes Hinse European pants and they turned out great! Gotta love a TNT pattern! When walking at the mall the other morning I noticed a cute vest with a little ruffle detail in the window at The Limited and went back to buy it! Usually I walk before the stores open which helps with crowds as well as impulse buys! Anyway, I now have a trendy new outfit to wear in slightly cooler weather.

We are leaving the beach in the morning--hate the sign that summer is over, but it is! We always have a little trouble adjusting to desert heat, but it won't be for long.

I hope to post a few more sewing projects, but I also accepted a short-term assignment at an elementary school in need of a principal. Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's back to work I go! Only for two weeks though, and I know I will enjoy the challenge. I'll post a photo of the pants with vest just to document that I have, in fact, accomplished one project! DH and I went to the LA Garment/fabric district last week and I bought 2 pieces of fabric for pants and jacket, so I hope to get some sewing done on the side too.
