(Sewing) Happiness is...

New patterns and fabric chosen. 

I took advantage of a Vogue sale at the Fabricland last week to acquire the two new Kay Unger dress patterns.  One of them is destined to be my "not-necessarily-black-not-necessarily-a-dress cocktail outfit" for the upcoming PR Weekend in Montreal.

Very Special Fabric has also been purchased.  So exciting!  All shall be revealed in due course.  I think I'll blog about my muslin/fitting but maybe not about the dress itself until after it has been duly unveiled at The Event.  Is that silly?

I also bought two of the newest Jalie patterns - the famous and, by all accounts, fabulous 2908 (women's stretch jeans) and the almost equally highly-regarded 2921 (scarf-collar tops).   I still have enough heavy blue denim for a pair of jeans, if not two, and multiple rayon jersey prints.  The hardest part will be choosing which one(s) to use.

But first, I'm muslining the jacket from Vogue 2770.  I'll post some progress photos later in the weekend, so stay tuned.


  1. Oh my, those two dresses are sooooo very pretty, sophisticated, sexy, feminine, , , , ;)
    Soft hug,
    Rhonda in Montreal

  2. Those dresses look gorgeous. I can't wait to see your versions!

  3. Sharing fabric colour??? And where you purchased said fabric? I am leaning towards boring black (Iknow, I know!)

  4. Oooh I have just bought the Kay Unger pattern on the left but I also love the other one. Looking forward to seeing how your 'event' dress turns out.

  5. It will be stunningly beautiful!
    Now, I KNOW I have to spend some time at my sewing machine before the PR Montreal weekend!
    I've also been admiring your vest/cute little top!

    Beautiful work!


  6. Oh, that sounds like fun! I'll have to start thinking of something to wear!
