I'm off on my trip and wrote this to you before I left.
Wanted to tell you about this Sew Along Casey is having.
Check out her link for a circle skirt to make, anyone can join in and learn how.
I was going through my big fabric stash (meaning several yards each) and came across 3 yards of this peau de soie or duchess satin as it commonly called. I totally forgot I had this and don't even know why I do anymore. It's a gorgeous jade color and is substantial in weight. I think a circle skirt is in order here. I just hope 3 yards is enough as Casey hadn't posted that info when I wrote this.
Where will I wear this you ask? I think to church with a white silk top (not made yet) or that black velvet jacket I just made why not? Maybe around Christmas time. It's so much fun being 70 you don't have to care a flying fig what anyone thinks anymore.
Now this doesn't show up well in the photo but it's 2.5 yards of a mauve fabric which has a nap and definitely has an up and down direction with the nap. So cutting it must all go in the same direction.
This shot shows it off a bit better. I've never had an idea for this fabric anyone out there have any for me?
