There are a lot of sewalongs happening lately - isn't it great?
Sunni's Trouser Sewalong, JoanneM's The Great Vintage Sewalong, Peter's Mens Shirt Sewalong, Sewaholic's Pendrell Blouse, and Gertie's Crepe Sewalong, and Barbara's brilliant idea- The Never Too Many White Shirts Project. This makes me feel optimistic about the future of our craft.
Rather than sewing another coat right away, I am considering something quick & easy to cleanse the palate. Bonus - I can overlap the Great Vintage Sewalong with The Never Too Many White Shirts Project with this pattern:
Isn't it pretty and feminine? I got from Barbara when she posted a Pattern GiveAway. Of course, I don't have suitable white fabric in the stash. But - there is a big sale for the rest of the month at Michael's B&M fabric store, so maybe I can find a nice supple, sheer white fabric there.
As I mentioned in my last post, there is a gown project on the horizon. Perfect timing, too, because I am signed up for a weeklong sewing class with Susan Khalje the last week of March. Who knows, maybe I will work on the gown that week? We shall see....
Look at my sister - this is a person who can rock a sexy gown, is she not? And you couldn't find a nicer, more deserving person.
She is 6'1" and athletic, so she can pull off just about anything you might see on a red carpet.
The girls in the foreground are DD's BFF, DD, DSD & yours truly. Sigh, I just noticed the hat says "drunken", doesn't it? Such good wholesome girls, they are. I'll just swish any disconcerting thoughts right out of my head!
Beads, lace, silk, corselette!
There! I feel much better now!
