I’m sewing Vogue 8648 again . It’s not quite the S H I B U I that it was the first time around, partly because I have omitted the silk organza underlining, thus saving me hours or perhaps days of work.
In the meantime several tidbits of information and inspiration have surfaced that I wanted to share……..
Today I had the pleasure of reading a comment from Lexley. That would be Lexley who inspired the cute Style Arc Lexley blouse ! I’ve often wondered about the names of clothing articles , particularly with Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer who name all of the clothes after somebody.
So now I’m curious as to who else bears the name of a cute pattern or dress. If you are one of the honorees , do tell !
Just as I thought my overly generous use of ruffles was bordering on overkill, I received a lovely email from Cissie with this image of a new dress by Lafayette 148 – a clothing line found at Neiman Marcus.
The $398.00 price tag for this cotton dress is inspiration alone to pull out the ruffler again. :) :)
I’m in love with Irene’s latest version of this Kwik Sew pattern. Irene overlayed charmeuse with lace resulting in this great summer top. I want one!
Wishing everyone a great weekend! Only 50 more seams to go..
