A black and red 50′s inspired swing dress – it has a circle skirt and and elasticated back. It was simple and a lot of fun to make and I’m excited to swing dance in it this Saturday! It’s not hemmed yet – I’m still deciding whether or not I want it much shorter. It’s part of my new years resolution to sew 52 garments in 52 weeks.

Nice dress! Personally I like it at that length, I think it looks elegant on you.

Do you have to rely on your country to give you something all the time, think
out of the box and improvise on how you would earn more than what
employment can offer, CNBC investing may help. The nation got to see
how confused and out of touch with the American people they really are.
Its weight is 122 grams and casing measures 111 x 51
x 13.

Hi, I do believe this is a great website. I stumbledupon it ;) I’m going to revisit
yet again since I book-marked it. Money and freedom is the greatest
way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.
