I lay awake last night, tossing around an idea for Party Time 2. I was hunting through some fabrics last night and found this gorgeous piece that I bought about 6 months ago and still hadn’t sewn up. I probably needn’t bother mentioning that it is Japanese. I think I need to head back there sooner rather than later…Kate?
Anyway, I also had tulle on the mind, partly because Harriet loves it so much, but also because I found a shop that stocks the really fine, smooth, bridal tulle (not the usual coarse stuff). Having decided what I wanted to do design wise, I took Harriet along to get supplies. I now have to credit her, because she added to the design by spotting the finest, smallest sequins which I knew would be perfect on the main skirt. I say main skirt, because this tulle underlay is on a separate lining skirt, made from muslin, to make this really puffy and twirly…
I can’t wait till Harriet wakes up in the morning and sees it….I’ll post shots with her in it later.
