Recently, through the magic of the internet and US Post I received the new season Vogue Marcy Tilton dress pattern 8876 in my little letter box months before it will appear in the stores here.
Vogue 8876 It is swishy and surprisingly voluminous and will be good as our days cool down into Autumn.
Trying to look mysterious and inscrutable.
I'd trawled the stash to see if I had a material that would suit this pattern and found this lovely Japanese quilting backing with white dragonflies on blue background that I had been saving for just the right moment. It had been expensive but irresistable. Now was the time!
I am working from the stash as much as possible this year, only getting notions when necessary. I've perfected the art of going into Spotlight, buying a specific purchase then Not Buying Any Material.
To be honest the offerings at the moment are not that exciting. Walking in and out of Tessuti or The Fabric Shop would be much harder but they are way across town .. thankfully!
Anyway, back to this eccentric little dress. I don't usually go for Marcy Tilton's art-to-wear style as it isn't really my thing but this slightly off beat offering is.
Buttons from Spotlight's bargain bin. Total cost 60 cents! Score! I used the triangular ones.
I've done a PR review of the pattern. I was surprised to be the first one.
A couple of shots of summer rain.
By the way, I have re-activated word verification. I know it is a bit of a hassle but I was getting so much junk. I value all genuine comments and hope you still say Hi.
Happy sewing everybody,
