What would you make? Wool



This is my question to you, what would you make with 12 yards of expensive wool suiting? My DH was gifted 4 pieces (a little over 3 yards each) of wool suiting and what I was told they aren’t cheap. Well he had no use for them so he gifted to me (thanks DH), but I have no idea what to make with them. I don’t wear suits ( dropped business in college for a reason) and my life is basically causal, so now what?

From the Studio, I have been hard at work when I can completing my first pattern. I’m hoping to send out a tester call soon.

From around the blogsphere:

With all of the indie pattern sales happening this month I really need to take advantage of them, especially since I lost most my pattern collection this pattern summer to an overseas move.

Until next time, happy sewing…


Sewing Tip: Fabric scissors

Coming up

As for Secret Garden Studio still working away but this week I see that I am going to have to change-up once again I am doing things if I want to be more productive. This is one thing that is so true for almost any business if you want to work, function, and grow there is always going to be constant edits to the way you do things. Hoping I’m successful.

Until next time, happy sewing…
