I have been literally buried in new books from the library...thought I'd share a few lovely pictures with you!
Have you ever wondered what the difference between a shirtdress, a maxi dress, an empire gown, a ball gown, and a cocktail dress? Find out all in Fashion 101. Great for the budding fashion designer and the sew-it-your-self types... I wish I had this dress back when I was designing hundreds of paper doll dresses as a kid. It would have been my constant companion.
Seams to Me by Anna Maria Horner. I LOVE it all!
I want to make this... (I have some vintage scraps that would be perfect!)
...and these. To cute!!
Material Obsession....sounds like me, right?
I literally gasped when I saw this quilt. I adore purples and lavenders anyway, but the combination of colors and prints in this one blew me away. I just love simple quilts. Oh, I want it!
I have some fat quarters that will be perfect for this fat quarter quilt...
whenever I get around to it, that is!
Finally, a trio of very lovely, restful pictures from Home Sewn. I wish I could step right into this book and live in it. The photos took me to another world and I came away relaxed and refreshed.
