The only thing I have bought previously at Artextile was a Brione lining that I used for my green jacket. Oh how I have coveted the fine wools, silks and linens! But now I am the proud owner of 2 metres of a beautiful Versace wool/metal fabric. The metal gives it a crisper feel than just the wool. I also bought a gorgeous two faced wool - charcoal on one side and brown on the other. And a couple of skirt lengths - green and purple - oh so soft! Absolutely beautiful. And a couple of linings as well. Lucky me! (The linings are not in the photo)
I worked only briefly on my Vogue skirt today. I took the side seams in to reduce the curve in the hip.
I think I will put it aside for the weekend to start on my new project - a jumper/pinafore. I want this finished by Monday, so I will give it priority! I will be using the Vogue dress pattern but exclude the sleeves. I may need to scoop out the armhole to give me more room. We'll see.
