Sew fun!

Excuse my cheesy title, but I couldn't help myself.
As many of you probably know, I love to sew! I started sewing my sophomore year of high school and ever since then I have loved it. In high school I decided that it is something that I want to do for the rest of my life and so I decided to major in clothing construction (it's not the actual name of the major, but it just sounds cooler when I say that). I have a sewing machine and a serger that I have been toting around with me for the past couple years as I have moved to different apartments, but this is the first year that I have actually had a place for my sewing machine. My roommate and I transformed our basement into a craft room so now we have a place to be creative and not worry too much about putting things away when guests come over.
So far this summer I haven't really utilized it, but this past week I finally took advantage of the room and made these:
I made view A, the shorts and I think they turned out pretty good! Here they are:

 Now I need to figure out what my next project is! I'm thinking a mustard yellow dress....
On a similar note, Project Runway Season 9 just started tonight and I'm already hooked! Whenever I watch Project Runway I get inspired to want to do high fashion and all that stuff; it doesn't usually come to anything, well it hasn't yet at least, but it's still fun to dream. Oh, also one of the designers is Mormon! Unfortunately, he was almost out tonight, not a good start, but I have high hopes for him!
