I wasn't feeling the greatest yesterday so I made this dress in response, and it cheered me up. The fabric is a metallic glazed linen that has the best shine to it. It was a part of my first Mood Fabrics order - this linen and some navy and gold brocade - and it didn't disappoint, so now on the top of my Christmas list is a gift card to that wonder of a store. I never knew so many amazing fabrics could be under one roof (nor could I have predicted in my school years that I'd get so excited over fabric), some favorites being this pop art silk print and this out-of-my-price-range silk brocade from Oscar de la Renta.
Lately I had been searching for metallic fabrics to sew with, but most everything I found was made from some random blend of polyester and man-made fabrics with strange names. When I found a pure linen counterpart, I chose it and am so happy with the result.. a tinsel-colored dress festive enough for the holidays.
Happy Wednesday! So happy election day is over, maybe people will start being nice on Facebook again. I wrote in my preferred candidate at our local voting station this year.. Ron Paul 2016!!
