Thank you so much for being so understanding and selfless in your response to my need to cut down on blogging/reading/sewing time. I'm not sure I deserve such a warm wave of kindness - but you make me feel very fortunate in having such readers and friends. Thank you! I couldn't even start to tell you how much your kindness bring me every day.
We haven't taken pictures of the Vogue jacket yet, but I wanted to share my future project with you. It is the Hot Patterns Moneypenny Trumpet Skirt, and is also part of my fall/winter wardrobe project. I traced and cut the pattern yesterday.
I am probably going to use the leftover brocade from the corset I made in May 2005... putting a picture here for those of you who didn't read my blog back then.
I'll be making the deep yoke version rather than the 8-panelled one. With a busy and rich fabric, I believe that less is more when it comes to the lines of a garment... Although, ahem, I've just realized that +10-piece corset above is the very argument against it! Oh well.
Isn't that skirt pattern feminine, both chic and sassy? I must confess the name was an added incentive for me... although the brocade fabric though should allow the Moneypenny look to lean more towards the James Bond girl - don't you think?
Can't wait to cut out that one and sew it up!
In closing, here's a sneak peek at a ringbearer pillow I made last weekend:
This is for a couple of friends who are getting married on Saturday... :)
~*~And now, back to baking. Seb is defending his PhD tomorrow!! I am getting to bake 8 cakes/tarts for the reception afterwards... and I'm halfway there. Off to check my oven now to see if the fondant au chocolat is done.
Hope you're all having a great week! Ours is certainly a busy and momentous one. :)
Thanks again, everyone.
