Nothing like "stuffing latex rubber condoms with hard boiled eggs" for achieving a nice form. 'Tis amazing what information you uncover about things you've bought in the name of Vessel Wednesday.
The Egg Vase sits atop D+G wool pinstripe fabric (only the best) which is being sewn into a reverse kimono top, and dark charcoal grossgrain ribbon which will also be used on the reverse kimono top. It's been a week of cutting patterns and pinning, in that ever decreasing hope the pins will sew themselves up. I love cutting fabric - with the little frisson of excitement that comes from a fear of messing it all up and never being able to rectify it. I have a pile. I am working my way through it. I am spurred on by those who bought, and ordered, linen dresses this week (oh how the heart sings! Thankyou).
