Does the challenge of design motivate you? It does for Rosemary St. Clair.
This past September Rosemary participated in a fun Island Batik contest, which required participants to use Island Batik Rayon fabric to design and create an outfit.
Rosemary explains the jacket has a thin layer of cotton batting and is quilted and lined with a decorative lining. The beautiful flowers on the jacket are fabric origami. She used So Fine! #50 to construct the garments and King Tut to do the machine quilting on the jacket.
Now, each story needs a twist. When Rosemary sent this beautiful outfit to the American Sewing Expo, it was not complete because they had lost the tank top! They were unaware of this mistake until Rosemary arrived at ASE (how upsetting!). They searched, but couldn’t find the missing piece before judging.
Thankfully, they kept looking and found the tank top a week and a half later—still in the tissue paper (whew!).
We’re glad they found it and so thankful to Rosemary for allowing us to share her beautiful creation today.
Have you had a moment of terror when you (or someone else) has lost a quilt or garment at a show?
