Cccp – American Soviets

One of my favorites! Remember how scared we used to be of the Soviets? Now it’s all about the Arabs. I don’t wholeheartedly trust either but I have have learned a lot from both. I don’t trust a lot of Americans. I do trust that in if a worldly Russian, an suave Arab and a cool American walked into a dance club and this was playing, they’d all dance! They’d just have to DANCE. Ahhhh the snake charmer dance. Another of my favorites!

Since posting this, I had had to add another favorite song!

Mrs. Brownie Dress

Dress #8. Mrs. Brownie Scout. As a kid, I chose gymnastics over being a Brownie or Girl Scout but now I have an Adult size Brownie Dress. Maybe I’ll get my sewing badge. Sorry I couldn’t make it hang straight. My dress form needs to EAT!

This is the first non stretchable fabric I have sewn with. I got a really great deal on fabric, ric rac and patches at Treasure City Thrift. This dress not counting the time it took to wrangler a giant tent into something that fit, probably cost me about $4. Yipeee!

Yes the dress looks like a gingerbread house and should probably have a gingerbread man on the pocket, but this Boy Scout patch was just too sweet! I am in love with this dress even though the bust line is too high!!
