Purple skirt, podcasts and Hong Kong

One more photo of the JCC to show you a close up of the topstitching and the lining of the purple skirt


I used rayon embroidery thread to "topstitch" the seams of this skirt. The lining is Sunsilky from Lincraft - a polyester lining. The colour matched the wool so well and I didn't have anything in the stash that would compliment the skirt. The pattern is the same as my black skirt with the brown topstitching - Burda 01-2008-127.

While I have been busy sewing the May mini wardrobe and the JCC I have been listening to Lori's podcasts. I have really enjoyed them!! I only recently got my Ipod and so I have been catching up on all of Lori's posts. So THANKYOU Lori!!! Unfortunately I am all caught up and now will have to wait for each new podcast. So if you have not listened to Lori's podcasts, I recommend you do! I am currently downloading Toya's Inspirational Wednesday podcasts for my listening pleasure. If you have any other podcast recommendations I am happy to hear about them :)

Finally I am off to Hong Kong on Friday! So excited. This will be my sister and my 3rd trip together there. And it was only last week that we decided to actually go. We had wanted to go again but the time just wasn't right with our parents. Mum is settled at the moment so we have decided to go while the going is good!

Oh you lucky duck! Enjoy HK and the warm weather. Make sure you take plenty of pics of, what else, the fabrics for us. :)

Great skirt too. I really like the added decorative stitching.

Thanks for the detailed picture. I have yet to discover the podcasts, but delaying because a) I have no i-pod and b) am afraid it will take a lot of time again.
Enjoy your trip. Like Belinda said, share something with us through pictures!

Am going to listen to Lori's podcast now. Have a great time in Hong Kong; I'm envious of you Aussies with your easy access to places like Hong Kong and Bali....

Your capsule looks terrific. I really like the colour of your purple skirt. I hope you get lots of gorgeous fabric in HK for some more delicious clothes. Thanks for the podcast link. My husband likes to listen to podcasts in the car, so it will be good to add some sewing talk to all the woodwork and gory medical discussions.

Have a great trip to Hong Kong. Now you will really be the Hong Kong shopper. Can't wait to see what you bring home!

Vicki, just had to tell you how I love the purple and green capsule! And the darling pose with the shoes. You are looking terrific! Love that print blouse especially.

Lovely details on the skirt! And yes, I'm also falling behind on Lori's podcasts... I must download the last ones and take some time to listen to them all!

Vicki, hope you had a great time in Hong Kong! I'm sure you brought back "lots" of fabric:)
