Furthermore, my pattern Maker Lily Uhmn was here over the holidays. She has been working in Paris for the last couple of years so I was thrilled to have her here to work on a pattern for a shirt waist dress I've been meaning to explore forever...

My first attempt is out of Black English tulle, a fabric I particularly LOVE. It's all just pinned together at this point. I like to let it sit on the mannequin for awhile before I start sewing it together. I'm thinking of making a pinky beige slip for under the black tulle.
In other news, on Saturdays I am working with The LES Girls Club creating products for the girls to make and sell in their store La Tiendita. Our first project is Aprons, which is going very well. We are planning on producing several different styles.
