Lucy Halter top

I got around to finally playing with the Lucy Halter pattern by Jennifer Paganelli & Carla Crim. You can make a halter top to what ever length you want or a dress in any length from above the knee to the floor. I love the versatility of choices.  As usual, love love love the pattern! Downloadable is the way to go & pictures of every single step is the only way I can feel confident in what I'm sewing. I am a quilter first, clothing is about 20th down on the list of things I sew. This pattern is quilter friendly and uses a 1/4" seam for everything, so I feel right at home! I can't recommend these patterns enough!  You can buy their patterns here or here. I chose an all time favorite Elizabeth Rose in ice for the top & Crazy Love's Cecilia in fuchsia for the bottom. Hope to get some color soon so I look better in it. Until then, I will look forward to warm Southern California days!

I was thrilled when I was asked to create this set as it has all of my favorite Jennifer P fabrics in it that span a wide range of her fabric lines! I am A L M O S T  O U T of the Elizabeth Rose fabric, my fav fav! I am actually working on making a Lucy Halter top with it as I realize when it's gone, it's gone and I want to wear it. I will review that when it's done. I hope Tiffany enjoys her set!

New Fabric: Cori Dantini

I have frequently visited Cori Dantini's etsy shop with her beautiful collage like prints and have often admired them. I just found out she came out with a fabric line by Blend Fabrics called 'Beauty is You' which includes panels from her artwork, so now I can make wallhangings for my house.:) The large scale panel is called Girls in Bloom and the smaller ones are part of yardage that can be cut up like I did or keep it as is and would make a great whole cloth quilt. It's called A Girl For Every Season. I found them at this shop, but it looks like the smaller print is already sold out! They are also available here although many of the prints are already sold out! I think they came in earlier this week! Can't wait to play with them!

Thanks for visiting!
