|I am quite pleased.|
I used Pellon Craft fuse for the interfacing. It gets the job done. I'd like to try a woven interfacing one of these days as I've read that it wrinkles less.
For my fabric I chose cotton canvas (Ojai in taupe) by Alexander Henry. Clearly, I'm a fan. It's hard to find now (of course), but Etsy never lets me down. I used Kona cotton (in stone) for the lining.
Now, I'm sick of making bags. This is my third one in a week (well fifth if you count both clutches). I still have to make Kris' messenger bag, however, I'm going to take a break to start work on my Colette Crepe. I've just finished the muslin and I found the almost perfect brown poplin for it. Originally, I wanted some rich chocolate brown poplin from Mood Fabrics, alas I'm on a budget. If this dress was less than 5 yards of fabric, then it wouldn't be a big deal. Oh well. Joann had brown poplin and I had a 40% off coupon. That works for me.
I should probably clean my sewing area but after all this bag sewing; I'm in desperate need of a nap.
