Check out my “new” vintage fabric I scored at DeBois Textiles in Baltimore yesterday. My friend Colleen spotted this amazing piece under a mountainous stack of material. It almost glows in the dark! I can’t wait to get back to my studio and make it up!

My best friend Patti and I met when we were 17 and both landed a job at a local fabric store. We basically taught ourselves how to sew from McCalls patterns. Now she and her awesome business partner Seryn have their very own pattern available through McCalls. I need a cocktail and a cry. Congrats you two! You ladies ROCK!
