I was hoping to have a different post ready for today, but that didn't happen. (Sorry Miss. Kitty, but the brocade shall remain a mystery for a couple more days.)
I needed something for myself that was quick and sprinkled with a bit of instant gratification. Whilst rummaging through my stash of fashion fabrics I found several (5) yards of a floral print on a green field. FH had bought it for me when we were back in college as compensation for me doing some sewing for him... back before we were even dating. Yeah, so it's moved with me three times. *sigh* Time to do something with it.
Armed with a pattern my mom picked up for me after I "squeeed" over her copy, I decided that this would become the quick thing for me. Sorry about the glare in this picture, but this was the best of the lot. If you poke it to make it bigger, you can see the longer-sleeved version in the lower right corner. That's the view I chose anyway.
Then came the fun part, and of course I had help. Isn't he helpful?
I really like the way it hangs.
