Friends, something special today!
You can (finally) see me model my completed paisley shirt over at the Mood Sewing Network -- just click here.
Now I don't know much about fabric design -- OK, I know nothing -- but for those of you who do, how do you explain how this fabric can turn up as this fabric, in the same colors and at 1/3 the price? (I did once sew with genuine Liberty of London tana lawn and it has a crisper hand and, mostly likely, a higher thread count. Still my mint paisley shirting is marvelous.)
I love my new paisley shirt and I hope you like it too. As I say in the Mood post, sometimes it's nice to put aside the black lace and man-skirts and get back to basics!
