Making a run for it...

As I sit curled up on my chesterfield, I find myself crocheting like a fiend. It comes and goes, this mad frenzied knitting/crocheting so I have to ride the wave and get as much done before the urge leaves me again even if this means staying up Christmas morning working out the closure system for my new corset.

Finished the first half but still working out the front. Excited about this one as the full outfit has unfolded in my mind. Just have to look for the fabric for the jacket and buy some contrasting silk dupioni for the lining. *sigh* Choosing fabric is always more time consuming for me than the actual drafting of the patterns but, thank Heavens, I have two people in my life who actually like to sew so I should suck it up when it comes to whining about fabric hunting. Sewing, never did like it, it was my least favourite part of studying Fashion Design.

Found some great fabric swatches and interesting colour ways too. Can't wait until the kid comes back so I can have a live model to try the muslin out on (what's the sense of having a gorgeous 5'10" waif around if you don't put her to good use?)

Check out these great colour inspirations (all fabrics from Designer Fabrics in Toronto)...
