That title is a tongue twister. Say it three times fast. Lol. This lace is fused on a nylon textile that is smooth and opaque. It is similar the Coral Scallop Edged Re-Emboidered Lace that is current available at Mood. No need for me to talk about how gorgeous it is. You can see for yourself. It is a great fabric to use for the special occasion outfit that needs to be made in a hurry.
This project was supposed to be a two-day project at most, once I worked through the fit issues of the pattern. It all started in July. Yes, in July. This is a "birthday outfit" for my daughter, which I didn't finish until early Wednesday morning.
Needless to say, my daughter was very, very happy when I told her it was finished and not so happy when I told her it was my October Mood project and we needed to take picture on a cold and gloomy fall afternoon. Oh well, that the price you pay for "free" custom made outfits.
My journey started with pairing this fabric with New Look 6130; views C with sleeves and E. This pattern has been on my to-make list for awhile.
We worked out the issue. The adjustments were made using size 12 and 10.
I don't know that I will sew it again. I have so many new and old patterns that I would like to try. But I do recommend it to others. It's easy and stylish.

My, my, my how time does fly. This is the longest span of non-blogging I've done since I started blogging back in 2007. I can hear Maria Curciarello, "When are you going to update your blog? I keep checking for new content."
Well, it's been with good reason. A lot is happening in my small world these days.
- I'm working part-time (they think I want to work full time)
- Lack of routine
- Family matters
- Looking for a new place to live
- Sometimes I'm just to tired to do anything
Anyway, I'm trying to get back on track. I miss sewing and blogging. When things settle down, I hope to do more sewing as planned in the new phase of my life.
So that being said, I hope to post some inspiration and a few recent projects this week.
