There Will be Blood

Project Runway has gotten into my blood.  
Last week I made two absolutely, perfectly, okay skirts.
But, since this week's PR episode was a rerun (probably due to those sports fanatics who would rather watch the olympics), I have taken it upon myself to create my own "challenge."

The challenge is to sew something from my stash.  Zero dollars to spend at Mode.
My plan is to sew a raw silk top, which will be adapted from a dress pattern.

Who do I think I am, Seth Aaron?

Grandma Doris was a fashion designer back in the days of glamour.
Maybe fashion design runs in the blood.
Or maybe just glamour.
Hopefully there will be a little bit of both in my blood today.
 Can I channel Grandma Doris?
Right after I get the kitchen counter clean enough to lay out silk...

oh, I'm working on the "after" post. It's not pretty.

Laura, how could you have missed me talking about my grandma being a fashion designer. You know, the way I talk about it like it makes me important or something.
