Back From Paris

 Here are our fabulous leaders. Marcy and Katherine did such a good job of introducing us to Paris. We shopped our hearts out and ate all the best foods.
 This was my first t-shirt, thinking this would be it.
 Then this one just talked to me and it was just needing to go home with me. The hat is a Stetson and made of linen. I was used to seeing men's hats in that brand but never one that was so much my style.
 Some cool socks and Trippen shoes.
 Some more shoes.
 Some leggings.
 Some poke-a-dot socks.
 More shoes.

 This beautiful silk and cashmere tye dyed sweater.

 A shibori scarf.
 A French pattern.
 Some notions. Glass buttons from the flee market from 1920's.
 A piece of denim.
Some more fabric.

Off to Paris

 this Diane Ericsson's pant pattern. I really like it.
 I made it up in black silk fabric and the cuffs and trim on the pocket are some old silk from a kimono.

I drew the pocket to add. I think the next one that I make I will make capri style. I leave this afternoon on my first let to Paris. Really looking forward to it.
