- Stay at home wife. Work gets in the way of sewing! Transplanted to Utah because of husband's job. I love all things home and sewing/crafting. I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes other home endeavors take my sewing time. I will also share the results of those efforts while still focusing on my notion to sew.

Colette Patterns Meringue Skirt
My Meringue Skirt muslin fit great everywhere except the length. I decided to add 2 inches to the pattern and now I'm ready to go! The fabric I decided on (I think) is a velveteen print by Anna Maria Horner. My only reservation is that it is quite a large, bold print and I usually go for something a bit more reserved. I will have to pay special attention to the cutting layout since it has a nap and and one way print. Ugh!!! IMO, cutting is the most dreaded part of sewing. The rest is fun. :)
I would welcome any and all comments on your experience sewing with velvet or velveteen and/or bold prints. It is with a bit of trepidation that I move forward with this fabric decision. Thank you for any pointers you wish to share.
