Simplicity 1659 remind you of this?:
While looking at the new Simplicity patterns to see if I needed a new pattern to use for something silk, I thought, "Is everyone pregnant??" (Not that there is anything wrong with that but doesn't everything seem kind of ...loose?) Like Simplicity 1667. Pretty, but when I asked Mr. Hunting Creek his opinion, he made a face. Not a happy face..
Prom Dress ever:
What's that drape thingie supposed to do? Gratuitous use of floaty fabric, it seems to me.
1661 looks like a wardrobe malfunction just waiting to happen:
Just a little breeze and oops!
The only one I could contemplate making out of my silk was
So I didn't buy any new patterns..The new ones didn't inspire me. If I'm going to go to all the effort of making something, I like to be inspired.
I have no excuse now but to use what I already have. My silk fabric is in the prewash. (yes, you can wash silk.) I hate dry cleaning, so I wash almost everything. .
Mr. Hunting Creek was relieved that February was not "Buy some more Silk Fabric Month", when I showed him my schedule. (He doesn't care if I buy fabric but he does like to tease me about not sewing the "good stuff"..)
What are you sewing in February? Something silk and "too good to use", I hope.
