This is a print from Kokka Fabrics (Japanese), for View D from Vogue 8506.
It's a lightweight print, so I fused it with Vilene H410 and used muslin for interlining. I'm hoping it's the right combination for a semi-structured bag like this. A PR member mentioned using many layers of fusing to get just the right texture and weight for a handbag. It had never occurred to me before to do this, but so far it's working out right.
The pattern is great, bar a few problems. It's clear without being verbose (you hear me, Amy Butler???)
Meanwhile my winter project is languishing without a hem. This is Vintage Vogue 2884.
I changed the lapel roll and it's beautiful. But everytime I try to buckle down and sew up the hem, the sun comes out and the temperature hits the 70's. So I grab the cottons and linens. And then it snows. Aye!! This is the sad lot of the procrastinators.
