I know I had mentioned the newest sewing magazine here,
Excuse my fly-by phone pics but I was a tad excited here people! I don't know who this sweet little model is but she is a cutie patootie! And it goes to show just how a baby grows UP and not OUT! This little day gown fits quite a while.
I have friends who have had many, many items published so perhaps they are more accustomed to seeing their things in print. Not me, I still get a real charge out of it. And seven pages! That was a real surprise too.
I have a few photos I had taken before I mailed it off. I don't want to share too many details because I want you to purchase the magazine! We need to do our part to keep any and all sewing publications in print.
It is an Italian inspired color palette using blue Japanese lawn, smocked and embroidered with ivory and ecru.
There is a little bit of lace insertion. The magazine did a stupendous job of illustrating this technique.
This photo, you can tell has all the set up of a real professional photographer, HA! Its lying on the floor of my living room in front of the window. I tell all my dirty secrets. You too can be a perfeshenul like me!
I hope you will either purchase a single copy, available through the magazine's website, Barnes and Noble or Joann Fabrics or better yet subscribe. You get quite the value for your $. Full size patterns, lots of inspiration through many projects and additional downloads from the website.
Enjoy and thanks for letting me toot my own horn for a moment. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
