Well, I haven’t felt much like sewing these days, so I’ve been fabric shopping, and thought maybe you’d like to see some of the new treasures that came to live in my imaginary all-sewn-up-and-ready-to-wear world. First up, a remnant of cotton stretch twill. There’s just enough to get a shift out of it, and this will be my first spring garment. Can’t wait!
Then there’s a collection of knits, most of which will be either a series of Tiramisus or Vogue 8379, which is the DVF style wrap dress that’s been so popular for years.
And a lovely silk/wool blend for trousers. I have always for as long as I remember, wanted trousers in a houndstooth pattern. Can’t wait to add these to my closet!And a small selection of completely unnecessary prettiness. The first is a black wool boucle with a lot of gold lurex. The second is a lovely piece of sequined silk crepe. The sequins are 1cm in diameter. I’ve plans, but I don’t know where or when to wear these lovely examples of frosting!
And wool doubleknit for something Ralph Rucci via Vogue Patterns in a lovely red. And last, but not least, a piece of Missoni knit that will be a spring/summer tunic. It’s draped over the stretch denim that belongs with my SWAP 2012 program. It’ll make a nice outfit.Tell, me, do you like to avoid sewing by fabric shopping, too?
