tonight i got the bias tape on the skirt and snapped a few preview pics:
i used fabrics from joel dewberry's aviary 2 and modern meadow, lizzy house's outfoxed, and laurie wisbrun's tufted tweets for this skirt. it was a stretch to get all of this to work together, and even after it was sewn up i was a little nervous about how it would be received (though i'll be the first to admit that i would totally wear this). i was very happy (and relieved) when the feedback was beyond positive. i can't wait to hear what the recipient of the skirt thinks!
random photo.... i have a friend whose daughter wanted to be an ewok for halloween and he asked me to whip up a cowl (i called it a cape and i've been corrected) to go over the rest of the costume. i think she looks pretty fab, so i thought i'd share :) and the cowl was pretty easy. bonus!
also today i received my first handprinted fabric (from the swap) in the mail. from japan!! you can see more about the fabric i received on riyo's blog, talktothewindandsun. here is a pic of the loveliness that came along with it:
awesome, right? thank you, riyo!!
