I finally present the first in my line of custom-made bras for girls with teeny tiny titties!
That's right, ladies, I am sick and tired of wearing only horrible sports bras and unattractive little bandeaus from the bargain bin at Target.
I like lace. I want to WEAR lace, dang it! I have itty bitty boobies, but that does NOT mean that I am not smoking hot!
To increase the hotness, my husband's best black fedora was stolen for this photo. He did not, I should mention, object.
In the same vein, I also found this fabulous zine on Etsy, which I plan on buying myself. Check it out!

It's pretty much the same machine as my old one, but is shiny and new so at least there is a possibility of it not breaking down horribly on a regular basis. Here's hopin'!
Now I just need to name it. My machines serve me better if they have a name. My Viking conventional machine is El Machino (named after the tortilla machine at a Mexican restaurant), the machine I used in the sewing lab in college was Astra. The Pfaff that was passed down to me through my grandmother and mom is Mr. Pfaff (or just Mr. P)
I was almost thinking of a studly young dude name, like Raul or Roberto, because it's replacing a much older model, but then I don't know if I want a boy machine this time or not.

If not, at least check out the Greta shrug, which I made after being inspired by a rather horrible dress in a 1946 "3 Stooges" movie, of all things. This shrug, I should point out, is nothing whatsoever like that dress (and the movie was just abysmal, but let's not go there ;P).
It's all silk, silk velvet lined in silk satin, and is so amazing to wear. Holy mackerel, if you haven't been wearing silk, you don't know what you are missing. Cool, soft, smooth... silky (if you can believe that) but so very unlike almost anything you have ever heard described as "silky".
Polyester has got nothing on silk worms, man. Natural fibers are where it's at!

It sold within an hour of posting it to Etsy, to the customer who has purchased every other chemise top I have listed!
I was making this top while watching the Muppet Show and now it is forever linked in my mind to Harry Belafonte's "turn the world around".
