A diary of all my mad projects.

I am glad that you stopped by - welcome to my world. Its a little mad and hectic as I sew, knit, embroider and generally craft my way through life. My newest resolution is to spend more time sewing - less time dreaming about it. I love to read comments so I am looking forward to hearing from you all.

In preparation for the influx of my inpulsive fabric buy I have been thinking on patterns.  The fabric comes from a dressmaker who used to make wedding dresses and ballgowns.  I am crossing my fingers for organza and chiffon as I have some beautiful silk in the stash that I want to make up properly.  Margy from "A fool for Fabric" made this Kwik Sew pattern K3764 and I love the look.

 While Chris and I were ooohing and ahhhing over some beautiful embriodered duponi in the stash a lightbulb moment flashed and I am now fitting the jacket for this fabric.

The fabric is similar to this from Hyena Fabrics.
More research is needed to ensure that the final product does justice to this wonderful fabric.  I am awaiting Claire Shaeffer 's book which should aid in this task.


  1. I love a fancy fabric for a tailored look- this will be gorgeous!!

    1. Thanks prttynpnk, I am now fitting the pattern so hopefully will have it ready to cut and sew this weekend.
