Have you happened upon Radiance yet? I mentioned it when I came back from Market, and have enjoyed petting this bundle, from Jackie, since it arrived last week –
Yum! I love the sheen and smooth texture. And with a 1/2 yard of each color, the options are many! Radiance is 55% cotton and 45% silk and available in 50 beautiful colors.
I have visions of an entire quilt made with these (imagine a paper pieced quilt!). It will be amazing, and I can’t wait to get to it!
Meanwhile, I was browsing online and found this coat.
I would love to make a trench and embellish a panel or two. I looked around for a pattern and found a couple that I could see altering –
Vogue, Butterick, Indygo Junction, Simplicity
Are you inspired yet? I have a few new ideas just writing this post!
Radiance is beautiful, and with the cotton to stabilize the silk, it doesn’t stretch as you sew, and a few pins will help keep it from sliding off itself as you sew. Quilts, apparel, home decor – sew it all!
Check in with Jackie for your own bundle of Radiance, I can’t wait to see more of it popping up online.
