First up is a teal Pendrell. This was the easiest decision because I bought this lovely silk charmeuse a while ago specifically to make the Pendrell in view A.
After digging through my modest pattern stash I found this pattern. (It was the first pattern I ever bought on eBay - there wasn't a single other bidder so it was only $4.00) It's a 1940s skirt and blouse.
|I love this pattern. The front welt pockets are the perfect detail and the simple A-line shape is so classic.|
|Here is a close up of my wool fabric. It was hard to pick up the color on my camera - |
but it is more brown than what this picture is showing.
It feels good to have some plans in place, I think this will help me stick to the challenge. Do any of you have trouble finding the perfect fabric for any of your sewing plans? Does this cause you to put your project on hold, or settle for something that you don't quite want? Or are you lucky enough to find something better than your original plan? I am curious, finding the perfect fabric for my sewing is one of my biggest struggles.
Live the moment, love life!
