Be my1000th Pinterest follower and win a prize!

Thanks Rhonda who is my 1000th follower!

It took me years to get on Pinterest. I just resisted, not even really sure why. But last January I wanted to participate in a Wardrobe Challenge and needed a Pinterest board. It was then that I began to see the amazing amount of information that was available and so easily accessible with a Pinterest account. So began my Pinterest love in earnest.

Today I have 999 followers.  Be the 1000th and win this vintage Vogue Pattern Book from 1970!

If you are the 1000th send me an email to: stoneylonesomesewworks at gmail dot com or just post a comment below and I will contact you.

Good luck and happy Pinning!!

My favorite skirt pattern...the Show Some Flare Skirt from So Sew Easy

There is something real classy and timeless about an A line skirt. In my closet, aside from the occasional pencil skirt, it is all A line. They work well with my figure, are comfortable to wear and can be dressed up or down. Use to be that A lines were associated with fuddy duddy types and old grannies at Church but not any more. There are so many possibilities with this style skirt, the only limits, one's imagination.

Today, Deby at So Sew Easy launched a new pattern. The Show Some Flare Skirt. It is available for purchase here for a mere $4.95. This is a very simple pattern that can be sewn up in a few hours or less. There is a video as well as written instructions, both are very well done.

I love the way Deby has you sew the pockets. It is just so dang easy and she walks you through each step so you can spend your time on personal design details, like the contrasting pockets above, instead of trying to figure out how to sew it!

Most of the skirts I sew are lined. I just like them better that way and it is practical for me because of were we live. In a couple of weeks, I will be featured on Deby's site with an easy lining tutorial. Hope to see you there!
