Today is an easy No Sew, folks. Actually, it’s a Consignment Shop Wonder.
Even better yet, it’s a Psi Iota Xi .50 cent wonder 😉
Simple. Basic. Chic… at least in my mind. Originally, it came from LOFT. I’m going to guess it started at $59.95 before sale prices and clearance and yada, yada, yada. I worked at a clothing shop for 2 years so I kinda know the “formula” of retail pricing. $60 is a conservative estimate.
Everything looks better when it’s .50 cents, though, amiright? 🙂 So I snatched that sucker up.
I’ve not sewn much lately because I’ve been out of town. Specifically, I was in St. Louis for training on Baby Lock sewing machines. BL has been around forever, but it’s new to us at Job #1 and a crash course was in order. I got to play with the most amazing machines, ever!
AND, I learned some nifty new “tricks”
Wednesday night after class, I was confined to my hotel room due to a most random bout with the stomach flu 😦 I missed Thursday’s classroom festivities, needless to say. Still puny, though not throwing up anymore, I drug myself to class on Friday.
Patty and Linda allowed my sick day and still let me graduate 🙂 They even gave me a mug and a hug. (Hopefully, I didn’t give them a BUG and a hug in return…).
Incidentally, the top I’m wearing in this picture is also a $2 Consignment Shop Wonder.
With all the cool things I learned in St. Louis, I’m super excited to start sewing again! I think I’ll whip up this little gem from the Baby Lock creative project book… hmm.
Thanks for letting my CSW be the vehicle for me to have “show & tell” time with all my fun Baby Lock stuff
