o.k. as mentioned before: I'm going on a 3 day class at blauweiss'chen, which is a company specialized in blueprinting or stamping with wooden stamps on fabric. Their collection is 2000 pieces big, so there is a lot to choose from.
I'm going to embellish my corset, a curtain (maybe more for the kitchen too. I do have some cotton here and I think that 3 days may be a little much time. I should have gotten just 2 I guess but I will see what is in my stash, that likes to be stamped on. Maybe some cotton for quilting someday... or for a handbaglining... I'm on a pretty tight buget at the moment so, I can't buy new fabric for that purpose. I'm going to a sale this afternoon, where they do get rid of fabric and wool from an old lady. Maybe I can find something there! ) and I do want to embellish a sheath dress (sp?).
I was inspired by tany's great dress and have looked into my pattern stash and came up with 3 possible patterns and need your help choosing!
The fabric will be linen in mauve or more kind of dove coloured. ( mental note: take pic )
so here are the possible patterns
First: from the dec. 2005 patrones
click on the pics to enlarge!
the next two are from burda 02/2001 and 12/2004
I had to re-draw the last one.
As you can see in the following pic, I'm kind of an H-shaped person:
so I thought the patrones pattern might be nice to give the illusion of a waist.
The last pattern is great for embellishing though!
I need your opions!
And thanks for the praise over at chopsewy for the wool I dyed for her. Maybe I should take orders ;)
And here my parting shot for today:
coconut-rasberry-quark(kind of very sour and more fluid cream cheese)-cake made by me this morning. Still warm in the pan!
