Today I worked on a pair of chocolate slinky gauchos for Hattie from Butterick 5064. She tried on a few when we went shopping last weekend, but I'll be darned if I'm paying $20+ for a pair of gauchos that I can make from my fabric stash. So I worked on them today and they turned out cute and she loves them (similar to the red pair in the pattern envelope photo minus the front tie since she doesn't tuck things in and I didn't have enough fabric anyway).
So I have her try on the final product so I can take a few pictures for you all and my camera decided it was time to die! :-( Now I knew it was probably not going to last much longer because the screen has been acting goofy for a few months, but I really didn't expect it to die so suddenly. I got two full body shots taken and went in for a few closeups and bam, that was it. Guess you all know what I'll be doing this weekend. Thank goodness cameras are so cheap now, I am sure I can find something pretty darn nice for under $200.
