Some inspiration here,a japanese pattern,putting a lace collar on a smock dress would brihten it up !
I will spend a bit of time sorting through my lace box.It is lovely just to look at it all !
I wish I could buy dress patterns in some of the shabby chic type fashions but so far although I have trawled the net I have not come across any.
This is gorgeous made by Inge de Jonge.
I am always torn between making a garment or starting a patchwork
This is a favourite pattern,Folkwear have a wonderful array of ethnic and historical patterns,maybe I will have a look at them.
Bedtime now maybe I will dream of fabrics,lace and the silk route!
