And also in the mix...

Among the curtains, pillows, purses, valances, pj pants and totes- I'm also working on a formal. It is the commissioned vision of my client and friend. The top is a criss cross deal loosely based on McCalls pattern M5323. The client pictured something sleeveless... so sleeveless it is! The skirt is going to be a mock wrap fancy crinkly shiney satin deal. I'll have a photo for you when its finished, (I hope). In the mean time, though, check out this awesome fabric for the top-

The fabric is some kind of satin, layered in tulle with velvety sparkle flowers holding those layers together. Its very nice. That picture is a close up of the tie detail on the side. The garment doesn't look great on Mannie, since its not made for Mannie's dimensions. Anyway, stay tuned, this one is going to look AWESOME. ~jen~

Now that I get your posts right to my email, I've been lazy about coming over here to post comments! Bad, I know.

I just love the formal you made me way back when. It's one of my favorites. I hope your friend loves hers as much as I loved mine. I'm sure she will though! : )
