This is only one of SIX (or maybe more) giant piles of fabric I’ve begun amassing for my next book. I have some really (REALLY) amazing apparel fabrics on order, and not a few more in my virtual cart(s). I might be on a binge. So far, just a lot of folding and re-folding, but plenty of pattern testing and sample-making is on the horizon! I love this part: where I get to make all the different variations on a design that really should exist out there in the world. YES, it should come in corduroy! YES, it should have piping! YES, you can use a zipper or buttons! YES, it can be five feet tall! YES, YES, YES!
