What else... we had another fun sewing meetup in NYC this afternoon, and I bought a bunch of nice fabric and some trim at MJ. I'll take pictures tomorrow, but all the cottons are washed and ironed and ready to be put on the shelf.
People often say that nothing in the garment district is open on Sundays which actually isn't true. Just on W 39th, Ayazmoon, A&M Fabrics, Daytop Fabrics and Chic Fabrics were all open. On 8th Ave, Ebad's was open, and there were about 4 stores open on W 35th. MJ Trim was open, as was The City Quilter down in Chelsea. Further downtown by Canal, P&S is also open.
Easter dress progress: I refolded the easter fabric. Really thinking about using the bubble dress pattern now, with peter pan collar, white sashes, and little sleeves. I might jump in and just make them tomorrow.
Jezebel posted a great article on Zara's runway ripoffs (or inspirations or whatever) this season. I LOVE that store- when I was in Paris last Feb, I made a beeline to the one by the Opera Garnier to buy myself a "parisian zara" trench coat. You know, identical to the ones in the NYC stores, and about 30% more, but french! The picture is me in it, by Notre Dame.
And finally, my nephew Tom has been playing with an old Easter Bunny I made when I was 10, so I took a picture of it the other day. I remember sitting in my grandma's craft room cutting out the fake fur to make this little guy, and marking all the darts on him. Surprising that he's still in such good shape 20 years later!
