Before I start on yet another shirt, I need to hem the sleeves, make button holes, select buttons and sew them on to the paisley shirt. As well, I need to hem the sleeves on TDF’s spring coat & add snaps as the weather is getting warmer and he needs a transitional coat.
For the next Robert Graham-esque inspired shirt, I’m planing on using this crazy grouping of quilting fabrics but I’m not 100% sold on this combination. If you hold your hand over the spirals, you’ll see that the stripes and block go nicely together. If you hold your hand over the blocks, you’ll see that the spirals and stripes go well together but all three together might be too much. I have some solid turquoise left over from the paisley shirt which might be a good alternative.
Please let me know what you think of this fabric combination, love it? Hate it?
There’s another member’s sale at Fabricland this weekend, I need to purchase a tailor’s curve so now’s the time not to mention embroidery thread! Apparently they have some new fabrics which I’ll have to check out.
Awhile ago, I picked up the fabulous trench pattern, McCall’s 5525 and now’s the time to get started on that as well! I have a stretch cotton in a similar colour to the pattern image but it’s so B-O-R-I-N-G! It uses almost 4 meters of fabric (5 5/8 yards), so I want to make the right choice, fun but not crazy lady! Any suggestions?
