Sneaky peek #2


This is another sneak peek from the pattern testing for Toni at Make It Perfect.

The lovely Pippijoe Orchard fabric as shown here teamed with a cotton/linen blend I found at Darn Cheap Fabrics in Heidelberg and red topstitching (that you can't see too well in this pic).

It's something for me, and I LOVE it.

Which means I have met the first of my sewing pledges for 2009 as per my sidebar:

"I will make one item of clothing for me, that I will actually wear."

It also has a zip, as did the 'big dress' I made for my niece recently, the zippered purse shown here and another of the Make It Perfect test patterns.

So I think I have also conquered number four as well - what do you think??

I am totally digging that orchard print and it looks great teamed with the denim. Make sure you update with a photo of it on once you're allowed.
