Piped Meringue

Piped meringue. Sounds like something delicious, right? It *is* something delicious - just not something to eat. It's the hem of the skirt I began sewing the other day: The meringue skirt from the Colette Sewing Handbook . I decided to highlight that adorable scalloped hem with some piping. Just need to do a little hand-sewing and she'll be ready to debut at work next week. And if you came expecting to see mouth-watering treats, I don't want to leave you check out some great images he re. *********************************************

Buried in tracing paper

Yea, you read that right. I have been a busy bee tracing patterns from my Burdastyle magazines as well as my my new fave sewing book, The Colette Sewing Handbook. Since many of you don't use Twitter, you wouldn't have seen my delighted tweet when I purchased the book a few weeks ago. I purchased the book for the Meringue skirt pattern (just like Carolyn ) and discovered that it is a delightfully well-written sewing book. I had a detailed review for you but managed to delete the post instead of publishing it.  And I'm too tired to rewrite it.  So another day dear readers! In the meantime you can check out the reviews on Amazon . But I'm warning'll want the book. **********************************
