For the past two years, Patti Ferguson has been a gracious host to some of my favorite sewing, designing Divas. Their visit is one of the highlights of the Haute Couture Fashion show weekend.
On Friday, Ann surprise us with a wonderful reception. She looked fabulous in McCall 6556. I'm getting that pattern at the next sale.
Saturday was whatever floats your boat kind of day. Some shopped at Fabric stores, while others shopped on the magnificent mile (downtown Michigan Avenue).
After lunch Carolyn, Patti, and I drove up to the Vogue in Evanston. I promised myself not to purchase one yard of fabric. But you can guess what happened. When Ms. Carolyn started to shop and comment about the feel and texture of certain fabrics, I couldn't resist. So I walked away with five pieces of fabric. Wink, wink. Patti was good. She walked to a nearby bead shop, returning just as we were having our fabric cut.
Carolyn recognized Pearl from the Worcester Expo, where she works the Vogue Fabric booth. So they formally meet at the flagship store.
The skinny on the Fashion show; it was great. There was a lot of energy and joyful movement from the crowd and from the fashion show models. The phenomenal Rhonda Buss was an outstanding Fashion Show Chair. I learned a lot from her. It was fun and our guests were pleased with the event. Of course, I don't have any pictures to show right now. That's another post. Most of my garments were previously reviewed.
