I will get a picture and add it tomorrow, promise. I just had to write about this fabric or I would burst.
I bought the loveliest silk velvet several years ago. It’s black with hot pink and multiple other colors in a paisley design. Whenever I look at it, I melt. It is beautiful.
I decided to use it to make Vogue 1367 again. This is the pattern in case you forgot!
It has taken me FOREVER to do the simplest steps on this shirt. The fabric slips and slides so bad I can hardly hold it together to stick pins in it! Being not very patient, this is driving me nuts.
Luckily, I have a Bernina 440QE. It came standard with a walking foot – which I have never, until yesterday, taken out of the box. I am using it now and it is saving my sanity.
I absolutely love this fabric. The black silk on the inside feels wonderful and the velvet on the outside is in a cord texture and catches the light and shimmers. This will be quite a top – provided I can survive the construction without needing medication!
