Mom’s back home so the sewing room is back in use and I’m diving straight into a coat. However before leaving she gave me an intervention: No more fabric this year, ok! She spend 5 hours bossing me around until all my things in the sewing room were tidied up. That mean both of my double doors sewing room wardrobes. Don’t worry… that’s normal behaviour for Brazilian moms no matter how old you are. She means well and I’m going to miss her soon!
Before mom’s return to Brazil, we took a few days off wedding planning to enjoy Paris. Her favourite city! I wasn’t going to go to any more fabric shops to avoid temptation but you know… Long story short, since our train was much later on the day than mom’s flight, HRH detoured our lunch plans to take me around a few shops because if I’m happy, well he is! And fabric shops make me very happy! He is such a keeper and I cannot wait for our big day!
Firstly we went to Lil Weasel
where I got Pauline Alice
Turia and some gorgeous sweatshirt. Hrh sat on the very comfortable sofa while I chatted away and patted all the fabrics of the shop. On the street/around area there were a few haberdasheries where I got lingerie elastic and lace. On the station I even snapped the latest version of La Maison Victor.
And my first visit to the la droguerie .WOWWWW. No wonder this shop is so very loved. A delight for the senses. I bought 2 patterns: The tie and the man’s shirt. One of the lovely girls working there approached me as said she reads my blog. What a surreal but so heart warming moment.
So you probably curious to know what I am making. I’m working on my Yona Coat playing around two contrasting fabrics.
From tracing to sewing the collars in one whole day of intense dressmaking. That’s how much I was desperate to sew! It’s been 4 days since my coat been sitting next to me
calling waiting for me to work on. Likely not going to happen this week. I’m having so little personal time and all of it is focused on wedding planning. I should be making dinner instead of writing this quick progress post!
