My daughter Emilie was home for the weekend. So as usual, we went to a shopping raid. I really needed pants. And I wanted a Levi's, my first. The shop was really busy, and there was only one attendant at the women department, but she did her best to help me. She has been very nice and efficient.
We took the opportunity of our trip to the big city to go and see some fabrics stores I found in the Yellow pages. Oh gosh, those are ugly shops, but they contain treasures! I'll visit them regurlarly I think.
Emilie wanted a "Japanes" top, like the one on Kitty Couture. But the pattern is out of print. By luck, I have a top she liked and that could be a substitute, at least in her mind. We found the perfect fabrics, but my top is made of knitted fabrids, the fabrics we found are weaven. It rang a bell in my head. As soon as we hit home, I made a fake top in muslin. And I'm glad I did, because indeed, cutting the fabrics at the same dimensions would have been a disaster... Thank you JoWynn for insisting on preparing your work carefully. Without you, I would have jumped to the real fabrics directly...
Anyway, here we are. After the trials of last night, I made this this morning:
It was quick (took me the morning) and she loves it.
I hope your weekend is as good as mine! Take care.
