A group of my friends are having a sewing day today. Since I couldn’t be there I thought I’d fondle some new fabrics and share my latest sewing dreams – it’s just like knitting, there is always another gorgeous fabric and another great pattern that you simply must make (as soon as you’ve finished the current projects of course!
First up is a lovely blue linen and some Liberty Tana lawn pieces, kn the left, and some acetate on the right.
The linen is destined for a loose floaty dress, I think, something like this (although sadly not that actual pattern, since it doesn’t go up to my size…). And I have a funny little special project for the Liberty, which hopefully I will share soon. The acetate will be used to line an imaginary skirt and/or bag (or maybe both). I just love the idea of a hidden but pretty lining.
Next up is a silk georgette (or is it a chiffon? I don’t know my fabrics that well, do I?!) which I plan to make in a loose caftan style top. I shall wear it whilst lounging languorously sipping cocktails by the pool (I did call this post sewing dreams right?!)
And finally is a GORGEOUS Missoni style fabric.
Hopefully soon my sewing dreams will become reality!
