One of the sewistas here in Southern Oregon, Ute, hosted an afternoon of hand-sewing at her home in Ashland today. Much to my surprise when I walked in, there was Myrna in the fabulous dress she sewed with our fabric, Sunny Day in Seattle! And doesn't she look terrific?

If you don’t already follow Myrna’s blog, you really must do so. All last week she has been writing about the process of sewing this new dress, an interpretation of Lynn Mizono’s Vogue 1410, but she had been quite mysterious about taking a trip to visit an anonymous sewing friend. And here she was, right here in Ashland.
Myrna’s dress has seams that are surged on the outside. She added sleeves and used a black knit for contrast on the front. She sewed it on the cross grain, with the slits in the fabric going up and down, which i would not have thought to do. Yet it looks great and it is a fantastic use of this fabric.
Last, but not least, it is a true honor to be featured in Myrna’s blog! Check it out at http://blog.myrnagiesbrecht.com
