This week was just plain busy. I haven’t done a stitch of sewing (pun intended). I have, however, been fabric shopping and planning. I also received the KCI Fashion books yesterday. All I have to say is wow, wow, wow!!!! It is an amazing series. Full color photos of amazing costumes and lots of inspiration.
I was really excited to see the yellow silk gown in my previous post in the book. That sealed the deal, I have to make it. I was at the fabric store a few days ago and spied some gorgeous yellow silk for $8 a yard. I decided to wait until Friday, and if was still there, I would go and buy it for my project. Well, it was still there and it was an extra 10% off that day. I feel like I lucked out. Anyway, I also snatched a very light silk chiffon for the shawl. I want to start my embroidery endeavors with an accessory and then progress to the “Big Metal Embroidery Project of 2010”, as it shall be known. I also bought a cute little tassel for the cap.
Here are some pictures of my finds and plans :-) God Bless!!!!
P,S, I have an event on Sunday, so I should have pictures for you by Monday.
Here is the dress, shawl, and adorable cap.
I laid the chiffon over the silk so you can see just how sheer it is.
Have a wonderful weekend. God Bless!
