The other day, I was at my favorite store in the world, and I saw the most impressive rack of sari and brocade fabrics. Now I have always wished that I could wear a sari -- I think they look cool and comfortable and I love the textures and colors and weaves of the fabrics. And this time -- yes, wait for it -- they were on sale! Granted, we're not talking about real silk here (it was a local fabric store after all), but in one's modern clothes, one doesn't always have to be a snob (though if someone wants to buy me some real silk sari fabrics, don't let this stop you).

After a while and a lot of contemplation, I chose a fabric (the first choice was in pieces on the bolt), and within a few hours, I had a blouse ready to wear on my date with Tim last Saturday night. (It's the dark blue blouse in the right-hand column on the package.)
This evening I finally finished finishing all the seams (it's a very easily unraveled fabric) and attached the bow on the front, and so I present Gertie wearing my new blouse!

In other news, it turns out that I can sew olde-tyme stuff, too. This is the 1830s bonnet I finished a couple of weeks ago:
