This month’s Sew The Show is a special one, because it’s my last one. In fact, it’s my farewell to all of you (more about that in a minute). That’s why I chose…
THE GOLDEN GIRLS!
I know, right now you are probably looking at the screen like this:
But just hear me out. This is one of my most beloved shows. I watched it all the time in college. There was no problem so large that a cheesecake among 4 friends couldn’t fix, and I needed that at that time of my life. These women are such bright, vibrant characters, and their wardrobes are actually quite chic! Take this look of Dorothy’s:
The shape and essence of that dress (suit?) can be found in this more modern style:

What about this sequined number on Blanche?
You can totally find stuff like that at any trendy store now!

Sew the Show is about thinking outside the box. You don’t have to dress like an old lady to be inspired by the costumes on this show. Bright, floral prints, boxy shapes and flowy robes that were so prevalent on this show are making a comeback right now, so it’s the perfect time for this challenge! Come along with me won’t you?

Now for the big news:
This blog has meant so much to me, and I love you all to pieces, but it’s time for me to move on. I’ve always loved fashion, and blogging about it has opened my eyes to so many things, and I just have to explore more. SO…I’m going back to school. I’m starting at our local university in the fall, studying Fashion Merchandising. The program there is fantastic and there are even 4th year internships at some pretty amazing companies (like Vogue!). I have no idea where any of this is going to take me, but I can’t wait to find out. I’ll pop in from time to time to say hi and show you what I’m working on, but starting in June this blog will be on hiatus. If you want to keep in touch and see what I’ve been sewing you can follow me on Instagram.
I’ll be back next week with news on Sew the Show May prizes. Thank you for being a friend <3
