So the project sat...and I moved on. I even checked a few trim stores in NYC for pre-made bias binding and no go there either! BTW, why does M&J have such a small (and I mean small!) selection of pre-made bias binding? And the colors of gray satin bias binding at Daytona and another little trim store that I looked at didn't work either.
Then last weekend when I was digging around in the drawer full of pre-cut bias rolls that I bought from Fabric Mart about 10 years ago (and one of the best buys I ever made from them!) to make some bias binding for the VOT Dress, I found this roll:
To say that I was a little excited would be an understatement! *LOL* All week I've been waiting for the time to turn this roll into bias binding. I even fell asleep yesterday evening on the bus home dreaming about how to apply the bias binding to not only the jacket but the accompanying dress.
I am soooo inspired that I got up this morning, put up the ironing board and commenced to making yards and yards of bias binding:
Here is a sneak peek of the finished bias binding on the cut out pieces of fabric:
I'm off to spend the rest of the afternoon working on the jacket...and no, I haven't forgotten about finishing up the VOT Dress. I can do both this weekend. Also, if I'm diligent, I may just get the dress that accompanies the jacket started too!
Did I mention that I'm so excited and inspired! *LOL* I'm off to sew and as always...more later!
