I've bought some choice pieces from Elliott Berman which have made some amazing garments. Does anyone remember this Versace inspired dress? It was made with a beautiful navy wool knit from Elliott Berman in 2011.
...or these cardigans from Burda 8869...
All from Elliott Berman fabric...which btw doesn't seem to linger in the collection long. I have a piece or two still remaining, must remember to use them because they are stunning pieces. However, I did order three yards of that amazing Milly fabric in the black and white lace wool silk gazar.
I'd actually seen those garments on the interwebs and finding a piece of fabric like that was in the back of my mind...so when the email came through it took me about 30 minutes to decide to purchase the three yards I would need to make my own version of a Milly dress.
But can I tell you that I had a really hard time not purchasing one of their "Deals of the Day"! My keyboard had to be wiped down from all the drooling going on with those amazing bargains. Some are a little pricey, yes, but the fabric is top shelf quality goods. I've bought from Elliott Berman both from their showroom and online and the customer service is fabulous either way...just wanted to share these finds with you!

The "Polar Vortex" visited my corner of the world this week and I realized one thing...I am woefully lacking in pants especially if this is going to be a colder winter than the last couple. So along with working on alterations to my Simplicity 3833 sew-along dress, I have a couple of pairs of pants in the works.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the plaid matching for a pair that are almost finished. I have two more pairs that I want to make that will suspend the Crazy 8 wardrobe sewing for just a minute.
It's Friday and I'm just waiting for the minutes to tick by so that I can go home and spend quality time in the sewing cave because my mojo is in high gear!
...as always more later!
