Blue Jean Baby, L.A. Lady

Because I am always altering old t-shirts, and sewing knits, I have been wanting a serger for some time. So after saving, and after some Christmas money, I got an early present. I must say I have been sewing on it daily, and feel a bit like that tiny dancer girl, you know “seamstress for the band”? I figured a day of sewing and embroidery would be a perfect occasion to wear the L.A. Lady Blue Jean Shirt. It is relaxed, comfy, made in the USA, and I love the lyrical reference, love the song, and just love the clever blue jean button up.

Love dressing up this blue jean button up

Dig the tie-dyed jean





I have been thinking in strings of  lights lately, my thoughts scrambled in between colorful lights. I want to cover everything in glitter, and cover every inch of my house in lights. I have been working on embellishing this grey t-shirt I have, with rows and rows of colorful thread, it reminds me of colorful rays of light.

Looks great layered or on its own
The other week my husband tells me he has a surprise, and to get my coat. I figure we are just looking at something outside, but we proceed to get in the car, drive a while, and we pull up to a house covered, I mean COVERED in lights, it was beautiful I don’t think I have ever seen anything so colorful! He changes the station, and the lights are perfectly orchestrated to the music, blinking in and out with the song, changing colors, and pulsing out the rhythm and bringing each song to life. It was so inspiring, made me want to go home and create, be inspired, and finish up my rainbow tee so I could wear it with my jean top, as they would be perfect together.

Hope everyone had a colorful & bright holiday season & a happy new year!

 Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad
Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows, the tune she hums
But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you, and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly
Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
you had a busy day today
Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you, and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly
- Elton John
