About a month ago, Michael headed off to California for two weeks for work - lucky Michael - Mexican food heaven, cheap beer, very pretty landscapes, and fun experimental work for him!! But I was lucky too, as my lovely hubby went fabric shopping for me - not once but twice!! (He also got me the Issey Miyake perfume and my favourite perfume Ja'dore by Christian Dior - I was thoroughly spoilt!).
Michael went to Stone Mountain and Daughter, and got three lovely cotton prints:
Sorry for the poor pictures (thats the limit of an iPhone I suppose). The red print is my favourite - it is so pretty.
Michael got me 3.5 yards of each, and they are all medium weight. So, of course, my mind has been going into planning overdrive for these lovely cottons. I don't want to sew with them until I've lost some baby weight, and I know I'll need more separates for a while given the mechanics of breastfeeding. So, with all of that in mind, I purchased Sewaholic's Crescent Skirt Pattern:
Tasia's (the Sewaholic :-) version of this is made in a quilting cotton, so I think it will suit my cottons perfectly. My plan is to make A and C in the blue-toned cottons. What do you think?
I am excited about Tasia's new pattern line - they look so pretty, and it is nice to have another boutique line to purchase from. Her Pendrell blouse has been out and about in many of the blogs I love with great reviews, so I'm really looking forward to making the Crescent skirt. Has anyone else bought this pattern?
