St Patricks Flow: A project abroad!

Hi Folks,

March has been a breeze right! But I have some good posts lined up for you so you can see what I have been up to these past weeks. Lets start off with my sewing chronicles abroad!. Yes, you heard right ABROAD!!

This outfit was birthed while on vacation. …. I know I know.. who does that?… I guess I do. 🙂 What you love have a tendency of following you around. I guess cause really it is apart of you right…:) hmmmm

So the story of this outfit came about a week ago while vacationing on the beautiful island of Montserrat in the Caribbean sea. All I really needed was a sewing machine which my Cousin’s wife just so happen to have :). My fellow sewer!

Doing some initial alterations the first day of sewing 🙂

My Aunty was in need of her St Patricks day outfit and had some fabric waiting to be manipulated by yours truly. In no time I got measurements and was self drafting this baby away! Little tools available but I had a vision that needed to become a reality!

The final product worn on St Patrick’s day! She looked fabulous. I think this just earned itself a spot in the Amshina book of prized projects! 🙂
