I wanted taffeta in royal blue or navy, I couldn't find it when I went looking, so I settled on something similar weight wise from Frank Stuart in Glenferrie Rd. ( i think thats where it is) its a dark blue with a slight stretch to it. it also has a nice russle when it moves, like taffeta sounds like.
I'm on to the cutting side of things, lately my sewing time has been dramatically reduced, with house hunting and other things. So it may take longer than I expected.
Other news I recently bought 4 Colette Patterns. I was showing the girls from my sewing class and they suggested a sew-a-long! We are making chantilly as of next week so I'll have two projects on the go. I'm very excited as i have just the fabric for it. It will be quite interesting how the other 3 girls dresses turn out. I'll keep you posted.
