(Hmm... I still don't know how to rotate these pictures on blogger.)
I'm very excited about these books. I already know I'll get valuable information from these based on others' reviews. :) I started reading the Shirtmaking and the Tailoring books. Next up are Gingher scissors!! I bought these when they were on sale at Joann. One is pinking shears and the other is dressmaker's shears.
The pinking shears are my first pair and I love them! The dressmaker's shears are super nice, too! They're not as comfortable to cut with for long periods of time, but boy do they make some clean cuts. Then, I recently bought some Colette patterns from The Common Thread, a local independent fabric shop. I love this shop!! If you're in the Austin area, I definitely recommend it. The store has a great selection of fabric and the owner, Jeanie, is super nice and very personable. She personally emailed me when she got the Lady Grey pattern in and saved it for me!
I've heard great things about Colette patterns and I can't wait to try one out. I will definitely be starting with the Sencha blouse since it's rated beginner.
