Cotton/Silk Reversible Dress. One of a kind. Find it here: http://www.sblla.com/heirloom/
I’m downsizing, minimizing and generally trying to travel lighter, feel free-er & get honest about exactly how many fabrics (and other things) I can use foreseeably in this lifetime.
I used to cock my head at women who would come round the fancy fabric shop where I worked part time & buy up hoards and hoards of fabric that I would never see sewn into anything. I wondered if they just took them out & petted them & then put them away again. …I have become those women. Oh sure I sew. I totally sew – but not at the voracious rate I’d have to to get through my bounty during my lifetime.
Worse. I organize my fabric very well. So it’s a bit of a trompe l’oeil -what I actually have. That’s Fraench for “punch of the eye” … it’s normally translated in english as “trick of the eye” but in my hoarding fabric sense – it’s a literal translation. It’s a punch alright.
I need to paint my beautimous craftsman farmhouse. Badly. And I need to have less to haul around in my 1960’s chevy truck bed. -Listen if I’m dreaming then I’m going to have a 60’s chevy in my dreams… So these days I’m throwing a fabric sale on my selling website & I’m still sewing the perfect few pieces. Slowly. Like heirloom pieces require.
Swing round the sabella selling site – grab some fabric – more will come. And if you don’t sew – grab a dress, or a linen wrap top. Only a few. Or in some cases, only one. www.sblla.com
Happy September. It is the best month.
