This printed cotton sateen is a recent addition to my stash. I picked it up thinking that it would make a cute sailor's dress.
As quickly as it was added to my stash, it left. This gorgeous printed sateen fabric will now be used for a new navy dress for Mama R. How can you say no to your Mom? You just can't. Especially when she expresses such good taste in fabric. It will make a lovely dress for her. As for a sailor's dress for moi, I do have a solid navy sateen in my stash.
In other sewing news, I have in my hot little hands McCall's 8943. It is a vintage 1997 pattern.
This is a shirt pattern that I've been searching for the longest time. It has french cuffs! I found it over at Etsy.com and it arrived this week to my absolute delight.
And I think I have made a decision.
These are the items that I will use to make my Chanel-esque jacket. An orange jacket with orange lining and blue trim.
I have a few things to clear off the sewing table as soon as I stop coughing up my lungs. It has been a rough week away from the sewing machine. How I miss that soothing hum from the sewing machine. In the meantime, I've been watching Claire Shaeffer's DVD The Couture Cardigan Jacket.
Until then, Happy Sewing!
