Mulberry Roses Neoprene Dress

Even though I’d heard great things about sewing with neoprene, I wasn’t really tempted to try out the new-to-me fabric. I was worried that it would be too hot to wear or that it would make people wonder why I was wearing a wetsuit to the park. But then Mood Fabrics started offering digitally printed neoprene jerseys, and those prints were just too much to resist. There were quite a few prints that I considered, but this Mulberry Roses digital print ending up being the winner. When the fabric arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it draped when I hung […]

Tanya Taylor Viscose Print Two Piece

The fabric I used for this month’s Mood Sewing Network project was one of those that jumped straight off the page at me and I ended up ordering without a specific project in mind.

Watercolor Floral Cotton Sateen

It’s clear that I love floral prints.  In recent months I’ve ordered several yardages of bright, bold floral prints.  My favorite, so far, for 2015 is Mood multi- color watercolor cotton sateen.  (Too bad it’s already sold out.)  The colors warm my skin giving me a summer glow.   Mood has a huge selection  of floral prints to pick from if this is not your favorite color.  My dress is completely lined with Mood’s mint -mechanical stretch polyester crepe de chine.  I regularly surf  Pinterest looking for inspirational garments.  I found this dress early summer and I knew I’d make […]
