Corduroy Lounge

Recently all of my days seemed to be the never-ending kind so when I leave me house in the morning I am dress to go to whatever event I am headed to after work. On Wednesday it was my friend Rebecca's birthday which was at Corduroy Lounge on Cornwall St. Great place, cheap drinks and good foods and usually live music! In fact my friend, Keith's band "Warless" was supposed to play but the night before a neighbour complain and now they are getting a new licence to let them play live music late. So the music will be back next week.

Also I finally got around to sewing something I can actually wear with my sewing machine. I am in love. I am planning so many things to make in my head that it hurts a little. I made this skirt after seeing a skirt I really wanted at Zara. It was $70 dollars and I just couldn't do did. I got all the supplies at Dressew and in total this skirt cost me $8 and 2 hours of my time. What to make next? Also does anyone know of any sewing classes in Vancouver? I think I need a bit of a refresher course since I haven't really don't any pattern sewing since high school.

Jean Jacket: Bootlegger $40
T-shirt: Dynamite, two for $18
Skirt: Made it myself!! $8
Shoes: Aldo $60
Necklace: Aldo $10
Belt: Thrifted from a friend's sister
Purse: Thrifted $2

I also want to point out that the only new item in this outfit is the skirt. I have had everything else for years. It just goes to show that your can rearrange your wardrobe in a million different ways and sometimes just one piece is enough of a refresher. "Shopping your closet" is something I have been doing my whole life, not just since it became a recession trend.

You should definitely try
They have free patterns (and others you can purchase for very little money) that come with instructions, and a billion tutorials. I'm making a dress from there right now.
