That's what happens when I let 3 weeks go by between posts...I have been busy and actually have some clothes to show for it!
But first...a few pictures of our redecorated bedroom wing. We finally got the painting we wanted for over the fireplace
It's called Spiral Dance; the artist is Seyburn Zorthian whose wonderful painting
I bought 25 years ago and is over our living room fireplace.
A few more pictures of the bedroom
The antique Katagami stencils above our bed were used to stencil family crests on clothing and goods in 19th century Japan.
These are old purses and bags I've collected on our travels; I hung them in the hall so I can see them every day. The color we used in the bedroom wing is very
difficult to photograph...the pictures of the bedroom show a more realistic color
So...on to sewing! I made another pair of Marcy Tilton's Vogue 8929 pants,
although for my 4th pair I changed them enough that she might not recognize them!
The fabric is an abstract print stretch denim from Emma One Sock.
They're very comfortable and the type of pants I wear most days.
I made another pair of loose harem-y pants from Sandra Betzina's V1355,
using a dreamy Ella Moss rayon challis from Hart's Fabric. This fabric is so perfect for travel to hot climates (India, I'm talking about you!) that I just ordered some more for another shirt.
I'm wearing a batwing tee with them...!
And for my final submission, I made yet another version of B5526...
in a wonderful French Circles and Squares crinkled jacquard from Emma One Sock. I am wearing it here with Eileen Fisher's Slouchy Ankle Pant in Silk Georgette, another supremely comfortable pant.
Well, if you've stayed with me this long, THANK YOU! I'll try not to stockpile
post material again...
