60's fashion inspiration poll:
Here are the winners, in order: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, June Cleaver, Aunt Bea, and Doris Day.
It's no wonder that Grace Kelly won. In her day, she was thought to be the epitome of classic beauty.
I'm glad to see that good old Aunt Bea got some votes -- even more than Doris Day!
Now, let's talk about sewing...
Experts say that there's been a huge revival in sewing. All of the blogs devoted to sewing and handiwork or that talk about these subjects in conjunction with other topics would bear that out. But, at the same time, lots of fabric stores are closing and chains are dropping their fabric departments. What's up with that?
Take the poll in my sidebar. Also, feel free to post comments that give us more information. Do you bring in income by sewing, either full time or part time? Do you sew clothing for yourself or family members? Do you sew home decor projects? Are you talented enough to design your own fashions or alter patterns to achieve your own special look? Do you hate sewing? Do you wish you knew how to sew?
Give us the scoop!
