just look to the right & click switch on smart reader & all the chapters comes up, you an read as much or as little at time as you want, so I put the link in my favorites so’s not to lose it, I’m still planning to go to the Library as I’d like to find the books Sherry posted on her blog which can be found & purchased on Amazon.com

well the detox sewing is done, I took a skirt I’d made a few years back & cut it down, now which look to pair up with my skirt to go out to dinner tonight
well the skirt looks great on the dress form, remember I cut it down…….
now I guess you wantta see it on me huh? lol, ohhhhh this is scary , ok I’ve decided if I’ve cut it down too much I’ll turn it into a blouse lol!
whew! it fit!
now which way to pair it for dinner & a movie which look do you think I went with?
can you guess now?
BEFORE…………AFTER 2 yrs later
detoxing my skirt, cutting it down has helped me see that I am losing weight slowly but surely, still a ways to go but not where I use to be
I undid the wait band, & both sides , ironed & folded each piece (front/back)on the fold ,cut out a smaller pattern,see all the fabric to the side of the pattern, that’s how much I cut off, that’s how wide my skirt was & I filled it up lol!
but look at me now!
now I’m excited & wantta cut something else up lol! there’s a Chevron skirt just crying to be detoxed! lol!

DETOX SEWING THAT IS!
upon losing weight, yea me! ok that’s another post another time lol! back to the detox sewing,as I mentioned earlier that Lauren of Rosie Wednesday had made post about detox sewing, revamp something o turn something into something totally new, so I have this blue skirt that I made last Summer for a skirt challenge
so today with lots of time spent with the seam ripper, I know you’re thinking I could of ripped or cut those seams lol but not knowing just how much I needed for my new size I thought it best to play it safe & do it the hard way lol!
too late to turn back now! it’s all cut out! I pinned it together & it fits my dress form, so that’s a good sign, right? lol!I’m hoping to get it finished up tomorrow & do some photo shots of dressy & casual
