Our new house has no citrus trees for juicing. Sigh.
We do have a fig tree however, and it is prolific!
I found this pattern for Palazzo pants from The Great British Sewing Bee on the Sew Mag website. I ignored the waistband, just folded down the waist and inserted elastic. That worked for me because I am short-waisted. If you want them more high waisted, use the waistband.
This first pair I made out of Manchester fabric from Robert Kaufman in denim. It’s so light and drapey. LOVE.
I recently had the great fortune to attend a four day workshop with Denyse Schmidt in Napa, California. The workshop was organized by the Modern Quilt Guild and was hosted by Pokey Bolton in her gorgeous Art Barn.
When my friend Billi and I went to pick up our rental car, the guy gave us a Mustang convertible for super cheap! Score!
Indigo dyeing is something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. I took a class at Quiltcon in February on natural dying with Maura Ambrose and it got me all jacked up to try some at home. I bought The Modern Natural Dyer by Kristine Vejar for some recipes and inspiration. Kristine also has a class on Creativebug about Indigo. I will not presume here to tell you all the steps to successful indigo dye, but I’ll give you a preview of what you’re in for.
