I made something AND blogged about it! It’s a hi-low ruffled pencil skirt (tutorial coming soon) for the Mermaid Parade here in NYC. I made the bikini top last year.

Some of you sewists may know Shelley who blogs over at New Vintage Lady about plus size vintage sewing. She also writes/ illustrates the popular comic Vintageville.
The super-hard-working Shelley and her wonder-dog Brian (such a cutie!) have been struggling to make ends meet for a while, and while it sounds like she finally has some more permanent prospects for the future, things are pretty tight right now.
I know she’s not the sort to just ask for $ but she does have an etsy shop where she sells her own original vintage-inspired patterns as well as some vintage clothing and other fun things.
She says she needs to come up with $300 by the end of the week*, so if any of you could either purchase a little something from there or signal boost this post, that would be great.
(NVL doesn’t even know me, much less that I am posting this, but i’ve been following her a good long while & just want the best for her).

In the video for British heavy metal band Throne’s song “Tharsis Sleeps,” the directors Nicos Levesey (also a member of Throne) and Tom Bunker went all out and created the first ever, frame by frame stitched video. The animation and sewing took several months to do and many all-nighters using over three thousand embroidered “frames” and over 45 million stitches. Check out the colorful, incredible video/work of art below:
