The fashion show was a huge success. Ladies of all sizes and shapes asked about the patterns. That is what I’ve wanted, all sizes and shapes to be able to wear my designs and feel good in them. Don’t forget to visit Craftsy.com Pattern number 4 should be on by the end of the week.
Today, I’ve posted a picture of “Skinny Vest” in more sophisticated fabrics, almost all of them are Marcia Derse’s by Troy Textiles. I started with an allover print from her Gerta Collection.
They are 4 x 4 1/4 ” rectangles printed nicely in rows. You will see that I treated it like the large scaled print from “Aussie Angle” and cut it here and there to suit me. I also cut out individual squares that look like they are falling away from the original piece. The filler strips are some Marcia, and some batiks. I bound it in black, my signature finishing detail with this vest pattern, but it also helps create the whole “skinny package”.
Next week I plan to start “Tuesday Tutorials with Heidi.” I have soooooo much that I have been working on that I must get them out so you can play too.
Hugs from Heidi
