|Bolts of Yardage|
Eventually, they arrived...not a big package...vacuum packed and I actually opened it up in my car outside the FedEx depot where I had paid $34 duty...still a steal. WooWoo! I tossed them in the washing machine and hung them out to dry in the sun and now they sit folded in my studio awaiting clearance of my work table and the emergence of my sewing machine...and a pattern.
Mieko Mintz jacket and rather like the style. I've poured over the pattern books at my local Fabricland but I have decided to make my own pattern using my Garment Designer software by Cochenille. I'm sure I'm up to the job.
I usually use Garment Designer for my knitting patterns for my knitting machine and have only made a sewing pattern for some nightdresses (which turned out great).
One of the pieces of yardage was overdyed so I may do that first...if I can decide which one to add lavender to. I'll keep you posted on my sewing efforts with this!
