Fabric love and everything in between!

 I think I am enjoying this a little too much! I went to check my post office box again today, and there a was another little box of lovelies from I totally forgotten I had purchased, um, this may be the first signs of a problem..But I am not looking for any interventions yet, but can't say the same as for my hubby's wallet lol!

(From left to right) The grey fabric is a cotton
stretch suiting, the floral is a Charmeuse satin, and the purple
is a poly crepe suiting!

I also purchased the fabric for my first coat. It is gorgeous! 100% Shetland Wool, the exact color I was looking for too. I purchased the fabric from Fabric Mart fabrics, it is a lovely "Candy Apple Red", at least according to their web site.. I sure hope so, fingers crossed. I am also planning to do a little tailoring with this coat. I plan to use as reference the "Lady Grey sew along" that was hosted last year by the talented Gertie from the "Blog for better sewing"..I also have the book "The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket.. I am going for it Divas!

 I made a little progress on my Beignet skirt last night. The lining is complete, I plan to attack the facing and attach that tonight to the lining, and maybe even work on the shell tonight. I am working backwards this time around. I found when I made the muslin, that I had gotten bored with the lining after the shell was complete. I hope to be done by this weekend, so I can start on my dress for my hubby's homecoming! He has been underway all summer, ugh! Missing the hubby :(   Well, that's all for now Divas! Be blessed and nothin' less, and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
