Gotta Have New Spring Shoes

I may be on a fabric diet but that doesn't apply to shoes! Here are my wardrobe additions:

These Naturalizer sandals look brown in the picture, but they actually are olive. The shoes are a perfect match for the olive suit that I'm going to make this month (lol). At least, I've traced the BWOF patterns.

Geez, the camera is not doing a great job of showing color! These Softspots shoes are red. I have lots of red in my wardrobe and might do some red dress sewing this summer. I'd love to make a red linen jacket, but that requires a fabric purchase (We won't go there!).

Finally, a true-t0-color photo! These shoes are Clarks Indigo in champagne. The heels are much higher than I usually wear, but they are the most comfortable shoes I own. With such a basic color, I can wear them with lots of things.

I made it through the Fabric Mart sale without buying fabric. That may be a first. Fortunately, I spent Mother's Day with the family at Animal Kingdom. I had a wonderful time but was too tired Sunday night to fabric shop. You know that is tired! There was lots of stuff going on Monday. I did a little sewing and put my computer on sleep to avoid temptation.

Lately, I don't know where the time goes. I'm working on a print blouse that only needs to be hemmed and buttons/buttonholes added. If other things don't distract me too much, I should be able to finish that today. Also, I'm working on a mustard knit BWOF top. I had to take a break from fitting those blouse sleeves!

I'm back to sewing and, hopefully, will have something completed to show soon.

Love those shoes, especiallly the red ones! They all look like shoes I would buy and have. Is sewing alive and well in Floria?
