Class Project: Faux Wrap Dress

Here was my first project for the class. We needed to make either a shirt or a dress. Something with a bodice. Of course I decided to do princess seams because I apparently like to drive myself crazy. No, it’s really cuz I like the way they look. Strangely I didn’t read the package of…

Salty Plum Soda

This is the salty plum soda at Evergreen Garden in SF. I love trying newthings so I had to get it. It was interesting. Not as weird as you mightthink but kinda salty yet sweet. Kinda like yogurt covered pretzels but notquite that good either.
