Okay, so yesterday was my actual birthday. But I wanted to share this special present I received, which was this gorgeous sheer material from my mom.
I think it’s chiffon. Anyways, I need to figure out what I want to do with it. Especially since I was informed that I only own part of this, since my mom is going to give part of it to my sister. Typical. When I was growing up, my little sister always got a present on my birthday. Can you believe this is still going on, even with us in our 30’s?!
Oh well, there is actually plenty to go around. I’m thinking a nice flowy dress would be great for this. I also got some black lining material as well that will go very nicely.
I’m so behind on my projects. I actually cut out the material for a knit shirt last week, but I have had no time to even look at it. As you can see, this will be a great lesson in matching up stripes. I’m actually very excited about this shirt because I actually saw the material and envisioned what kind of shirt I wanted to make with it. I then did a thorough search for the perfect pattern to match what I wanted. Stay tuned for the post on this one…when I finally get around it it.
The chiffon material hasn’t fully inspired me yet, so if anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them.
