Busy times

Well, it's been awhile since I posted, and of course I have a good excuse.  I have taken on a second job!  Part-time.  I'm still sewing a little, but not nearly as much.  However, I did get permission from one of my friends to post this picture of her.

Two years ago, she came to me with an idea for a Halloween costume.  She wanted an ice dancer outfit that matched her boyfriend's hockey jersey.  Naturally, I can't resist a challenge, so here's what I whipped up one afternoon.

Aren't they beautiful together?  As you can see, her boyfriend loved the outfit, and I was rather pleased as well.  It's one of those 'I can't believe I DID that!' moments.   I used a bathing suit pattern as the base, and added the contrast pieces and skirt later.  Then I made the wristlets and booties.
It was a lot of fun.
