The mummified heart is said to be that of vampire Auguste Delagrance, responsible for the deaths of more than forty people back in the 1900, a period of vampirism in the USA. When he was identified, Delagrance was hunted down by a Romano Catholic priest and a Voodoo Hougan, and was destroyed in 1912. (x)

Today, I’d like to talk to all the beginners out there. I know how disheartening it is to be a beginner…
This is a nice little blog post for beginner seamstresses looking to find the motivation to get started in the sewing world. Colette suggests her own patterns to build up skill levels, and while I love that idea, I have said on here a bunch of times (and have had it co-signed by a lot of followers) that her patterns are built for a very specific body type that I dare say not a lot of us have (full in the bust, boxy from waist to hip). You will have to test her patterns out yourself to see if they work for you, and I would say that simple tops are more likely to fit various body types than other garments because of minimal shaping. But give them a try, and if you don’t think they will work for you, you can easily find patterns by other designers that incorporate the skills she is highlighting in this post (projects with pockets/zippers/shirring, etc).
Reposted so I can check this out later. I seem to be “cursed” when it comes to sewing…
