In Sewing News Today...

Just a reminder that there is one more sleep until the pattern give-away winner is announced. Details here. Good luck to everyone who has entered.  

In other sewing news... I bought a zipper!  I took a trip out to Mitchell Fabrics since they have a wider selection of invisible zippers than what I'm able to find in the south end of the city. Without any difficulty, I quickly found a invisible zipper to match the green sateen I plan to get to this weekend.

And since it was pouring while I was in the fabric store, I took the opportunity to look around at the fabric while I waited out the rain. Check out this fabric!

I found this black, silver and blue print in the sale section along with some other gorgeous African print cottons. They're beautiful and can you believe they are on sale for $3.89/metre.

The fabric would perfect for the Vogue 1309 tunic that is currently in my pattern stash.

Sew, it was off to the zipper display to pick up a separating zipper for the tunic project I just added to my list of things to do.

Talking about tunics, remember Vogue 8791? It is that lovely tunic that I cut out in a green silk noir without making a muslin first. It became my big epic fail because I forgot that I don't have a Vogue model figure. Well, my sister-in-law just happens to be Vogue modelesque. She tried on the unfinished tunic and it fits her perfect. The green silk noir looks beautiful with her green eyes, added bonus.  Sew, Vogue 8791 is back on the sewing table to be finished up. Just the sleeves are left to complete. I'm happy that the beautiful silk fabric will not go to waste and the size cut is a perfect fit for my sister-in-law. Happy ending after all, love that!

Anyway, that is all in sewing news today.

Happy Sewing!

The Iris Dress

It's not the greatest looking photo. It's kind of a hot mess and could use a iron to get rid of those wrinkles in the front but...
