I actually squeeeeeeeeeled when I opened the package containing fabric I ordered for a dress I wanted to make for an event the Mister and I were attending last weekend. The fabric manufacturer is called Dear Stella and from the Dear Stella House Designer and the collection very appropriately is called Gilt Trip (see all of the shimmery gold metalic?! From the collection I chose the print called Feathers in Navy and decided to line the bodice in a coordinating navy with gold dots.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? And, I needed a dress to wear to an event we were attending so I had to get started and cut into this gorgeous fabric and start sewing.
Tango (aka: Mr. T.) is always at my side when I'm sewing. Ummmm...Tango...would you please move over just a bit so I can read the instructions?
The bodice is lined so I used the gold dots on Navy. Of course the lining doesn't show so nobody will ever know what a snazzy lining I have, but I know it is there and it is pretty, I think.
I ordered the fabric from Hawthorne Threads. They have THE BEST customer service and very fast delivery. If you have any questions they answer emails immediately and your order is mailed out the day you order in most cases. Here's a link to "Feathers in Navy".
I have a bit of yardage left over and I'm thinking a handbag or clutch to go with this might be very nice.
Let's hope the weather warms up now. I have a garden that needs some warm sunny days!
Until next time,
