|ooo, and check out those new-to-me ebay boots...|
I'm so excited about it. It's made from the endless scraps of fabric I have about the place - including the vintage drapery ( the sleeves). The base is some of what I scored when the fabric store down the street suddenly went out of business and everything was 90% off. Can you imagine?!! It's embossed velveteen. I worked from a Koos pattern. I love them, always so exuberant and complicated.
I'm going to visit all the wonderful women at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style that I missed last week. And the crowd at Monday Mingle, and, of course, Lakota's Ta-Dah Tuesday. Oh, and don't forget the Pleated Poppy. Come join us.
Ed. Note: A year later I'm connected up with Sheila's Shoe Shine and Sacramento's Share-in-Style: Autumn. My lovely boots never got the chance to shine on their own and my transitional coat gets such short air/ wear time between seasons, it was a great chance to show them off together again. Hope you don't mind...
