Museum Tunic + instructions

Well I'm not sure what you were expecting. When I read my comments from the last post at dinner last night, I cracked up at the notion that some of you assumed that the flier image I showed in the post was the dress I was going for! SO funny! I guess you might think that at a glance. But come on, I only had about an hour! That would have taken at least an hour & 15 minutes (+ 2 days). Anyway, I've had the thought to make this ultra simple tunic from the Square Dance fabric for a while, and decided at the last minute last night to give it a quick whirl. A few notes: I used what's considered a panel and a half of the Square Dance fabric (45" length). The front is exactly the same as the back, and equally flattering from the front and the back too! The style could not be more simple, and it felt really appropriate to enter the amazing Golden Age of Couture show in something very simple. Thanks for your enthusiasm yesterday about the dressmaking madness, and hope you try one too!

Organize Your Fabric I love looking at my fabric! But it didn’t used to be that way… Does any one else’s fabric collection look like this?

And these boxes had been “neat” before, but let’s just say getting the fabric to the box instead of the craft table is an accomplishment.
