special delivery (no, not a baby….yet!!)

while we were at quilt market last month we ran into anita, the owner of one of our very favorite shops, sew to speak.  if you’re in our area (central ohio), you should pop in.  you’ll come away inspiried!!  anita asked if we could make a sample of our summer jazz dress for the shop…..well, of course!!

so last week i sat down to stitch it up and ta-dah….

DSCN0257

it’s anna maria horner’s “sinister swarm”, although i think it looks harmless!  it’s voile, and it was a dream to work with….but more importantly, it will be a dream to wear.  oh, so soft and drapey.  but showing it on a hanger, draped over an ottoman didn’t do it justice…..so here it is on my studio friend.

DSCN0260

she’s a very old dress form, minus her covering….but she keeps me company in my studio and never complains about what i make her wear.  a gift from my sister, she’s dear to my heart….so she gets to model my latest creation, at least until tomorrow when i will deliver to anita.

want one of your own?  you know you do!!
