My new shoes came today from Modcloth. Pink I just had to have them and not really sure what I'll wear them with.
This is my velvet dress so far. The muslin took forever and now I'm having to do a lot of basting with this. Pictured here is the side front with a lap stitch making it look like piping on the velvet. I've never done a lap stitch in my life until now.
Here is how Debi Fry's looked using an old heavy velvet curtain she bought for 10. I'm using a stretchy velveteen so it's going to be a bit lighter in appearance.
Read about her dress here. I'm using Debi's pattern.
This pattern I bought for myself in the late 60's but never made. I'm thinking of making this coat now if I can find the right wool and that is so hard to do on line by the way. Difficult with bound button holes, welt pockets, lots of tailoring inside and lined like I did on the Gertie starlet suit jacket. Maybe save that for the long winter.
This dress on the right looks so sweet I will keep it in mind and look for the right fabric.
This is what I see when I'm in the bathroom!! This is Pan watching me, if I don't close the door he will come in and wait lol..!!
