Quick NYC Trip Report
My niece, Christine, is an artist working in photography. She uses a variety of processes, including wet collodion. I was happy to accompany her to NYC last week to source fabric which she's using for an upcoming exhibit scheduled in February in Arizona.
We went to B & J, Mood, and of course, Kashi!
The bottom photo is Christine, buying a wonderful cotton at Mood, for use in her project. Christine and I both bought more fabric at Kashi's. The photo of me on top was taken by Christine. You can tell she's a photographer by the way that photo is composed, can't you?
Speaking of Kashi's - he just got in some lightweight black silk knit that is "TDF" ("to die for"), and also some really nice silk/cotton blend wovens. I haven't been sewing a lot, so I did not buy that much from him, but what I got was gorgeous! (NAYY).
Speaking of my sewing, stay tuned. I'm working on a 'big' project. Making a mock wrap dress of some "Anna Sui" silk purchased last month from Fabric Mart. I've underlined it, and am making a point of using quality techniques and (hong kong seam finishes, stabilization at neckline, silk organza interfacing at hem and strategic places). I think I'll have that dress done shortly, and when I do, you'll see it here first!
