Fabric, Fabric, and more Fabric…

My mother is a seamstress and worked at Fabric King then Joanne’s Fabrics for several years.  She always had access to the newest fabrics and at a great employee discount.  Over the years she had accumulated quite a stash.  Since her retirement, she no longer has a need for sewing “work clothes” and recently let me take it ALL!!!!!

So many projects to sew, so many patterns and ideas out there…..  I have already traced the patterns for a pair of shorts and two tops and am ready to cut them out.  I am trying patterns from the book by Lotta Jansdotter, Everyday Style.  The designs in her book are simple, yet elegant and can be dressed up or down.  Just my kind of wardrobe.

Stay tuned for photos of the many, many projects as they unfold!!!!  Thanks Mom!!!!
