An end of week fabric sample
It's been a week since my last post, so I wanted to stop by and wish you a lovely weekend. With only a few weeks left until the summer holidays things suddenly seem to be very, very busy and I've also been trying to get one more pattern written, so blogging time has been sparse, but in amongst everything else this lovely piece of fabric has been attracting my attention - it's pinned to my notice board (which has no notices, but many photographs) and my eyes keep wandering back to it. It's a silk crepe and I've fallen quite in love with it. I spotted it in my local fabric shop last week and they gave me this sample to think upon. I'd love to make this blouse from it - the crepe is much less supple than the Liberty lawn and so it may seem like a different garment altogether. Silk crepe isn't something I've sewn with before - do you have any tips?
But for now, I'm finishing a busy week early and heading off to a friend's house for lunch. Hurrah!
