I've made a second version of Gertie's Portrait Blouse (from New Book of Better Sewing (NBBS) and then memorialized the event by taking (silly) pictures. First - the sad news, Betsey Johnson is closing her retail stores as of this last summer. The good news, her fabric went to Mood and I benefitted from this sad event. Hopefully, she'll be onto something even better!
Here is the blouse on, as I am photobombed by Paddy below:
The sales person at Mood told me this fabric came from her closing retail stores. . . and I have found other butterfly like patterns in her collection from this year:
My next projects are JStern's Khaki pants (in black denim), Sailor Pants from Hot Patterns (in Denim), and I think the Anise Jacket from Colette in Green Wool.
