I participated in Made by Rae's Spring Shirt Challenge a I am proud to present my effort. This is the first piece of clothing I have ever made and I am so proud of my effort. I used a tutorial of I found on Sew Mama Sew that was provided by Rae. I used fabric I got from Fat Quarter shop which I love my hubby calls it the nipple print along with green broad cloth. As I sewed this I listened to the soundtrack of Spring Awakening and Tina Dalco on my Ipod, it took me 3 1/2 hours on Friday night, but it is done. Hubby was a huge help with getting the straps right and added advice only once did I have to use the seam ripper to take the pleats out because I misjudge the amount of fabric I need to have, I forgot I was a little more chunky then I thought. So thank you Rae for a great challenge and helping me to expand my sewing horizons.

So it was not odd that I believed in fairy tales and wanted my own. I meet my Prince in 1999 when I started to work at the same place my sister did, it was a year after my mom died and I had a mental breakdown leading me to leave the law firm I worked for. When I first met him I did not like him I thought he was to arrogant and thought to highly of himself (things I usually like), but he started to grow on me little by little. It was during a major computer reworking in anticipation of 2000 that I started to get a little smitten by him. He was the IT guy so I made s…
