I’m a firm believer that blogging is a two-way street, and never did this become more apparent than on the making of the V8548 coat. When I set myself a ridiculous challenge, you cheered me on. When I lost faith, you advised taking a break. When I finally succeeded – more through luck than judgement – you helped me celebrate.
So it’s a good job for you – and me! – that I want to say ‘thank you’ and happen to live near one of the best and cheapest suppliers of fabric in the known universe.
Many of you drooled over the lace trim I used on my coat. So I’ve bought three metres to give away – more than enough for you to line something yummy. I also haggled for two metres of fine black silk with a beautiful taupe design on it. A lucky reader could make something really classy with this. A Sorbetto blouse? View C of the Pendrell? Ooh, there’s enough fabric here for the Taffy blouse in The Colette Sewing Handbook. It would be PERFECT for that. You could even do as I’m planning and use it to line something. After all, it didn’t cost you anything!
