This and that
I found the perfect, truly perfect, faux black leather fabric. I purchased it from Sawyer Brook. I want a black leather top with or without a peplum. I am thinking with. I have seen and saved so many black leather top photos that I was thrilled when I saw this on Sawyer Brook website. When it arrived and I could actually see and touch it, I was doing the happy dance. I need to make some adjustments with the Vogue peplum top pattern that I used this summer. I think it is short waisted and needs a little more width at the waist. I have some faux leather "skin" fabric purchased recently from Mood and may make that up first to further perfect the fit.
I decided on my next skirt project also and it will be one of the new Vogue pattern purchases I made recently. You can see it in the side bar. The fabric is from Waechter's in Asheville, NC.
I have a lot of ideas floating around about next projects and just need to find more sewing time.
