Couture Fashion Extravaganza!!!

I have been invited to showcase some pieces for a fashion show for an Aids awareness event titled: Pre-World AIDS Day:AIDS. Of course, with these designs I will add my little twist to give them all extra flair. The event is Saturday, November 14, 2009 for all those in the Pittsburgh Area. The event will be held at the Holiday Inn Pittburgh, University Center 100 Lyton Ave. 15213. That's in Oakland, for those who don't know, right across from the Cathedral of Learning, Pitt Campus. The Ole Almater!!!

I am so excited about this Jacket, this is in the new Vogue book just put out. I got 6 patterns, but this one I am doing two coats: one in red, and one in celery, view b
This pattern I have had for 1 or 2 years and never used it. But, I love this pattern, I have to see that special fabric in order to make something. Well, wait til you see what I got. I will be doing two jackets: one in a brown artsy fabric with yarn overlay and the other in two fabric textures of the same color: burnt orange, the scarf is textured and the jacket portion is soft and supple. I can't wait to finish the project. I think I am going to add pockets, I can't have a coat w/o pockets!

I will be doing this one in a gold or dark mustard cordoruy in view c also, time permitting, I have a bronze metallic fabric I will do in view a. I hope I can get it all done with going to school and working and grandchildren!!! I believe God gave me this opportunity so I won't complain!! Thanks Marla for the invite!!! I appreciate it!!
