This is what he brought me from Emmaonesock. I've been really good about not buying too much to add to my stash. Being self employed in a field that is pure luxury can be scary in this economy, so I try to think twice before I buy. But I really loved these fabrics enough to click my mouse.
4.5 yards Donna Karan in a tweedy linen/viscose/lycra for my tnt pants and my first Patrones, #24 from issue 276. A great vest or sleeveless jacket. It reminds me of something I saw in a magazine; the same one that inspired Caroline too, I think. I will, however, not be wearing it as styled! I also don't like how the button is done, and I'll overlap in the normal manner.
1.75 yd Donna Karan silvery gray viscose/lycra jersey. So gorgeous and silky.
2.25 yards black and white cotton lycra shirting. This is the silkiest cotton imaginable.
I am planning to make this Burda blouse that is going the rounds lately. I am not a 'classic' shirt person, and this fits my style better, though I'll make the shorter version.
Before I get to these gorgeous fabrics, I am going to sew some ufo's.
This Hot Patterns knit jacket in a Zegna dark gray wool cashmere blend knit from Michael's sale last fall is up first. It's all cut out and interfaced.
Our Trip was great! I love driving south in the early spring when you can really see the progression of the season. The drive across Virginia was just gorgeous with masses of Redbuds (Cercis canadensis) in full bloom on either side of rt 81. We had a lovely time with ds and dil. Josh and I cooked together on Thursday and that was great fun. The seder was lovely and Josh did a great job leading for the first time.
