My favorite Pinterest finds of the week (follow me here: http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/).
I’ve cited photographer/etc where possible–that’s the down-side to Pinterest. A lot of authership/ownership is lost in re-pins.

You may have noticed that my shops are all on vacation this week. Only a temporary hiatus while I catch up on orders and regroup a bit. I expect to be back up and running in a couple of weeks.
As mentioned, I’m using this time to catch up on orders. But FIRST, I had to complete the doll pairing for my nieces:
A red chiffon skirt/dress (shown as a dress since is so LOOOOOOONG):
A couple of sparkly cowl-neck tunics flew off to the UK:
An Alice dress is in the works for a lucky actress:
And a striped tunic, bustle and military hat came off the machines, too:
All-in-all, a productive week so far. Hope yours is going well, too!
I love these crop tops.
I have a couple myself, and need to make a few more.
I’m a huge fan of layering, you see.
A friend once laughed at me, when I lamented having had a hard time figuring out what to wear one day–this is back when I had an office job.
He said–“What do you mean? All you do is: tank top, t-shirt, cardigan, and GO!”.
Which hit it on the head. That really nails down my clothing–tank top, top over that and cardigan, if the second top has short or no sleeves.
Which is why these are a great wardrobe addition for me. Tank top (possible two in contrasting colors) and crop top. Done. Comfortable, easy to wear, and goes with anything.
I have a few new fabrics to make some of these out of–wild prints! PRINTS! I never use wild prints, so I’m excited to get making them. Once my stack of orders is diminished, that is.

I love this black and gold striped fabric.
Sadly, I haven’t been able to find it for some time now.
Made into a stunning bustier (which I loooooove). I’ve made these for a few years now. This is the last of the line, until I can magically acquire more fabric (fingers crossed).
Lined in black twill.
Flexible boning sewn into the lining.
Grommets and a modesty panel in back.
So pretty with formal as well as casual looks.
bust: 29-32 inches
waist: 25-28 inches

New fabrics arrived over the weekend, and I can now create ruffle leggings in white as well as red. (in addition to the cream, black, blue, and multi that are ALREADY offered) Capri or full-length! Send me a msg if interested as I don’t have the new color options listed in any of the shops yet.
Obviously my feelings of being overwhelmed have continued on, undisturbed, as evidenced by my almost-complete disappearance here. Maybe next week will be better.
Until then, I give you my favorite Pinterest-finds this week. Have a lovely weekend!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all!
I have a wee bit of Irish in me…..just a drop or two.

I don’t really celebrate the day, but I know others do.

So, have a lovely day, wear a bit of green, and have a designated driver!
It’s Mardi Gras day! And it’s raining and freezing cold out! And I’m under the weather!
All that adds up to me, a heating pad, a blanket, some coffee and photo editing/listing of newbies for the shop.
Just listed seven (SEVEN!!!) new capelets over in the etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrappedInTimeDesigns
Here’s to hoping it’s warmer in YOUR neck of the woods!
I’m so excited to share that one of my designs is featured in a full page photo editorial in New Orleans Weddings Magazine!
Check out the image–that’s mine with the red bodice!!
Hopefully just the beginning of fabulous things.

New in the shop over the weekend:
The bustles are all being offered on a made-to-order basis, too.
I’m trying to beef up the shop in between orders. I have a whole stack of things that are ready to be sewn up, and I try to add to it every weekend, as well as subtract from it (ie: sew things up) every week. Problems only arise when I’ve fallen out of love with whatever idea I had had when I cut whatever-it-is out. Then….well, then it goes to the bottom of the stack.
