We had a GREAT time at the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington last month. If you missed it, I can highly recommend this show to everyone who loves garment sewing. Yes, there are classes and vendors for quilting, but the split is fairly equal. Every year, Vogue Fabrics, (available online at http://www.voguefabricsstore.com/) comes to the show with rolls and rolls of beautiful fine fabrics at fantastic prices. It was all I could do to keep from taking it all home myself!
Wow. To say I look like that is stretching it just a little...but I did receive plenty of compliments from everyone, and even the men-- however few there were. A fellow vendor at the end of my isle stopped me on the third day to say that he had noticed me every day, and that he wanted to tell me in the kindest way, how nice I looked. WHO wouldn't like that?? Now you want to know what is this dress that makes everyone think of a voluptuous Madmen actress in pink?
Please, let me introduce you to the Beatrice Pocket Dress. I love a dress with pockets, but these aren't ordinary pockets, they are interior kangaroo pockets. We've made our dress out of satin and lace, but this simple dress with upscale details could be made of just about any fabric.
Head on over to the shopping page where you can read the descriptions, see all the photos, and yes...I hope you'll take one or all of these new spring styles home with you today!
