Tablecloth & Napkins....NOT! Introducing Schatzinette
This dress is made from one of the ugly fabric candidates. My dance teacher thought it would make a lovely tablecloth and napkins. Saturday, I pulled this 1995 pattern from my stash. I didn't do much except remove some of the fullness from the skirt and lengthen it. Yesterday Barbara of Germany tells me that it looks like a Spring Balenciaga. And asked if I was inspired by it. No, I wasn't. I never saw the Balenciaga until yesterday. What an uncanny resemblance. Right down to the binding placement I used. Okay, so mine is made of cotton and cost less than $10.00 to make. Balenciaga's is made of silk and goes for your monthly mortgage, a car payment or two, some groceries and a Happy Meal. Visit the link when you have a chance. Talk about inspiring. Thank you Barbara, Antoinette and Peggye.
