Oh, I'm so jealous - look at all that fabric and all those people who like to sew. Uh, can I have your wadder? You know, if you're really throwing it out? I'll trade you my first wrap dress, which is also a wadder!
Clio said…
Wow, sorry I missed it. What a great haul!
How in the world are you calling that dress a wadder??

I want to come to New York just to do some fabric shopping. Now if I would only sew something! LOL!

Hey would you meet me and take me to all your favorite haunts? I would love it!

I also need your e-mail address again. I had to delete it because of a virus!

Your wadder looks good on your dressform
Rosie said…
LOL - Sheila - very happy you got me from afar :o). It was great to see you my dear and meet up with the other ladies as well. Hmm may be we need a late fall/early meet up.

I see you found the wooly nylon - great going.

Now why is that a wadder?
Jackie said…
Looks like you all had a great time! I had a wadder from the weekend too, but I'm not showing mine. Yours is cute!
robin said…
Wow, you got a lot of great pictures!! I really enjoyed meeting you IRL. I look forward to hearing more about the wadder, as it looks good on the dressform...
Carol said…
I am so envious. Every time I see one of these days out on someone's blog, I vow to move over there so I can join in. I'd like your wadder, too. It looks terrific. Curious to hear the back story now!
It really sounds like a lot of fun.
Your fabrics are beautiful.

It was great meeting you. You're beyond advanced beginner BTW. The wrap dress looks awesome from the front. Like everyone said, take a little out in the lower back. Then you'll be one hot chicka walkin' down the street! :)
