Dress Inspiration

So I know a lot of what I'm posting lately is just inspiration...but it's better than nothing! I got my sewing area mostly finished up. I will be posting pictures as soon as I can get them! It's from Verity Clothing. She got the pattern from the May 2009 issue of Burda Magazine. Isn't it lovely? I want to make one!!
But for now, here is a lovely dress I ran across.

Sewing Nook Inspiration

I have decided that spring break is a perfect time to redo my sewing nook. It is connected to my room and is where I do all my creating. Here is what I want to do:

1.) Create a desk similar to this one. Mine will probably be in a L-shape. Mine will also be wider, and will probably have a file cabinet under one side and a shelf of some sort along the other. I might also secure the back against the wall using  bracket of some sort. My grandma has the doors and shelves, so all I need to get is a file cabinet, and I just found one on craigslist for $8! I’m thinking about painting the table a teal/aqua color…

2.) Paint the walls. I am wanting to stripe the walls using the same color as my main room along with another slightly darker color. I want this room to be fun! This tutorial is also from Young House Love. LOVE their stuff!  It looks to be fairly straightforward.

3.) I am also working on some watercolors of dresses to hang on the wall. Kind of like this:

4. ) My grandma has an old window frame that I might incorporate in some way. I might do something like the picture, or I might just paint it and hang it  on the wall.

I’ve got some other ideas, but I guess that’s it for now!
