Airbrushed AC Shirt Awesomeness

But first, some homemade bread. This is the 21-year-old breadmaker we received as a wedding gift, and it's still got it!

Added the water, dry ingredients, then opened for a little peeky-poo after 5 minutes.

Sadly, the water is supposed to be cold if it's summer time, and I used hot water, thus the sunken top.

But oh so moist and tasty!

Now to my new favorite top. I opted for gray thread to bind the neckline, and wish I'd felled the seams with it too...oh well. I also serged the sleeves right-sides-together before hand-sewing them to the top, so there's a nice finished edge there. Just thought that would be fun.

Sad AC model style pics.

And my AC skirt made from recycled soccer T-shirts too...

"Why yes, I AM an Irish step-dancer; why do you ask?" Seriously, did capri pants go out of style suddenly, or is it just these shoes that make it look so weird?

Oh, it even goes with my favorite gray pants and gangster shoes! Wish I worked in the corporate world so I could actually WEAR this blazer.

So does it scream cray-cray, or can I wear it to work?

Nobody commented on the pink AC top I wore, but this airbrushing's definitely gonna get some looks. I'll let you know. Oh, and here's some experimental stitching on the blue dress:

Lucas wisely pointed out that I already have a beaded dress, so I'm just going with the satin-stitch. I believe backstitching is done with embroidery thread and not button craft thread like I did here, so I'm taking that out too. Now Robbie, do you want to email me some pics to post here? I'm anxious to see how your top is turning out!

You are WAY ahead of me. I've had and am having again, out of town company. Plus, I had a "friend in need" last week. I LOVE the white T. it looks wonderful! AND there is no law saying you can't have 2 very different beaded dresses.

Yep, you don't need this habit in your life, Sheila - you can't kick it once it takes hold!!!
