Thanks to all of you who said you are interested in a sewing along with me. This makes it even more interesting.
If you blog and will be posting about this can you send me your blog address so I can post a central list? Or if that is too organized just drop in with a comment as you go along.
I also want to thank Robin for pointing out that every doesn't look great in pure white (anyone who has ever gone bridal shopping knows this) so off-white or ivory or something similar makes sense too.
I am going to research this all this week (and try to source some fabrics for real classic fabrics - any suggestions?) and will be sending an email off to Michael's in Baltimore today for a start.
My goal is to use a different pattern or view every time and as many different white fabrics as I can.
I am also spending my free time this week making a mouse costume for our baby. Been a while since I did the Hallowe'en costume thing. My daughter wondered if I would be too busy - over this grandmother's body are we going down to Walmart.
Lots to think about.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
