The Destashification Version of the Story:
- If you give The Destasher several yards of fine woolen fabric, she will need a pattern.
- If she finds a pattern in The Stash, it will specify interfacing.
- If she goes to the store to buy interfacing, a piece of fabric will sing its siren song to her.
- That piece of fabric will need a pattern, so she will visit the pattern counter.
- Unable to choose a specific pattern, she will settle on three that might work.
- But they require buttons, thread, zippers and new sewing machine needles.
- Buyer’s remorse is reduced by 30% because the coupon indicates 30% off.
- When she gets home, she discovers she forgot to purchase the interfacing. So, she must return to the store to buy interfacing.
- But, if she goes to the store to buy interfacing, a piece of fabric will sing its siren song to her………
A friend who is a buyer for a store with clothing in the 4-digit+ price range gifted me some beautiful brown/black Italian wool suiting fabric. In Arizona, wool is not a wardrobe essential, but the opportunity to create with the fabric presented itself as an upcoming trip to Denver.
The Pattern Stash contained several options but I choose Vogue 8403 for its asymmetry.
While cutting out the pattern, I was inspired to embellish the jacket. The dark colors and the classic weave of the fabric seemed the perfect canvas for a few Stash Couture Embellishments.
The Stash provided the beads, buttons, piping, twill tape, contrasting fabrics and even the mother-of-pearl buckles.
The jacket closes with three hook and eyes that are concealed under the face and twill tape embellishments.
The double fronts will provide protection against the Denver chills!
The embellishments provide the fun!
