Had a lovely time this morning playing in the local fabric heaven – Glynburn Fabrics.  Their store is just a TREASURE cave!  We found fabric to make Eunju her “Audrey” dress (she loves Audrey Hepburn’s style, and this dress pattern will look gorgeous on her)

And because I couldn’t resist: this wonderful heavy cotton in cream, red, orange and brown (I KNOW, not supposed to be my colours, but it’s just so FUN!)

Very Caity Fabric!

Also shown = some cream pre-made satin bias binding, because that makes the neckline and armhole finishing so quick…

So – just an final check of the tissue fit for Ju’s pattern (we did the FBA last night, and shortened the waist length) and a quick iron and we’re off!

    I am sure Eunju will love the dress when finished. What fabric did you choose for her dress?

    The fabric is a black poly rayon blend that looks permenently randonly wrinkled…. lining is black cotton batiste (super fine!) and we’ve bought grosgrain ribbon and a buckle for day, as well as satin ribbon and a gorgeous little diamante oval backle for evening.

    Oh, there’s nothing more wonderful in the world than a great fabric store! I’m glad you had a nice holiday! Happy New Year!
