passed me by. I couldn't find any apparel fabrics I liked, so I jumped over to home dec sites and found what I wanted at Online Fabric Store.
I used my trusty Lynda Maynard pattern, making them ankle length.
I was afraid they might be a little too splashy, but I think I like them and they
feel very summery.
Print Block Tee on Communing with Fabric, so I rummaged in my scrap pile
and made this (V9004)
This fabric is a jacquard, so both sides are usable. I didn't have enough for the sleeves and back, so I used a black crepe and lengthened the sleeves.
Excuse the headless shots...
In other news, I celebrated a birthday with 3 very dear, very long-time friends
and had visits from a daughter, teen-aged granddaughter and her friend. Also a niece stopped by on her way to pick up her son after his first year at UCSB...(University of California at Santa Barbara). Our guest house has seen a lot of traffic lately!
At some point, we were visited by the resident skunk family, who stopped by for
a bite to eat...we DO live in the country, and they ARE black and white...
Catch me on Visible Monday, where Patti makes sure we have a place to be visible!
