Sometimes, you change your sewing schedule, because you're inspired with something else. This was the case with my current sewing project. I was drafting the pattern of a Lutterloh skirt and basting a pleated skirt, when all came suddenly to a hold. What happened? Well, I found the perfect match of a sewing pattern and fabric. I was so enthusiastic that I started with it straight away.
The fabric is in my stash for almost 10 years. I love the fabric, but I couldn't find a suitable pattern. So it stayed in my fabric stash year after year. This changed when I received my vintage patterns which I bought during a sale. The pattern envelope with a girl wearing the design cought my eye. I saw stripes and 1 + 1 became 2 in an instant.
Normally I use fabric which have soft colors mostly decorated with flowers. But this fabric is quite bold with its big stripes and subtle shininess. I have to get out of my comfort zone if I want to wear this set. I must say this is a bit frightning. But as the set comes together I get more excited about it!
