Let the fun begin! Sewing for me in March!
First, which pattern?
Then, with which fabric?
I can already tell which dress I will have to work hard on. The Tiramisu. I know I will want a more stiff knit than one with a lot of drape like a sexy silk jersey. I love the dessert, and clothing styles named after food grabs my attention. When I get the dress complete I am going to wear it to Girardi’s and get tiramisu and a coffee kiss (I suggest you do the same. So delicious!)
So back to sewing stuff. I have odd dreams of being able to wear the Tiramisu on my bike. Crazy, I know. Jersey can be so light weight, it will fly up when I mash my pedals. However, of the three fabrics, the stripe is actually the least stretchy, making me feel like it will stay in place a little better? But it might be see-thru, and that seems like a poor choice, maybe better for a shirt I can wear something under it. (I am very hesitant about my hyphen use there… what happened to my pathetic MLA formatting knowledge?)
The green jersey hangs in such smooth curves, I feel like the Onion Top 5039 (not nearly as lovely a name but just as feminine in style) with the lovely cowl neck would really be fit. Maybe even in tunic form, or maybe that will accentuate my already wide hips?
The grey with metallic polka dots might be my choice for the Tiramisu, since it is reversible, I could play that up a bit on the waist line and such…
As you can see, it’s impossible for me to make decisions easily. Maybe I should just go get dessert and mull it over a bit longer…
PS: My talented teammate made some rad stencils using the freezer paper method and metallic fabric paint!
