Spring Sewing Swap

I just participated in Kerry's Spring Sewing Swap!  I was lucky to be paired with Debi of My Happy Sewing Place. We exchanged a couple of emails after pairing up, but for me of course I have been following Debi for a while and figured I couldn't go wrong with something vintage for her, of course I forgot to take a picture so you will have to wait until she puts up her post!

But, OMG, check out these treasures she sent me!! Did she get me spot on or what??


Gorgeous buttons covered with what looks like Liberty fabric, a length of wonderful silk/linen blend fabric, I wish you could all feel this, it is so amazingly soft. I am imagining a skirt or tailored shirt - I have 1.5m and it is fairly wide - any recommendations??

And did you see that pattern???? It is divine, the pleating, the collar, I just love it!! I have some vintage floral rayon that may be perfect if there is enough.

Thanks so much Debi, your package was perfect! I only hope you liked yours half as much :)  and thank you to Kerry for taking the time to organise the swap, it must have taken ages to pair us all up and coordinate us all!

You can see everyone else's swap goodies here.


  1. That pattern is lovely, so elegant. And the fabric sounds delicious. Glad you enjoyed the swap!!

  2. Oh my my my! So many pretties, that pattern is gorgeous, the collar! And love the buttons too, very sweet

  3. I love that pattern Liz and those buttons too. I can't comment on the fabric as I need to touch!!But I do like the colour. I think I would make a skirt but I guess I still need to touch the fabric before I could really say what to do.

  4. Oh, wow, this is very you! I'm excited to see that dress on you!

  5. Wow, this is gorgeous!! I adore that pattern and can't wait to see it made up!

  6. Hey nice post
    Would you like to follow each other.. !!!
