Here is a really great story on Lorene Carnes, who was in art school 72 years ago and dreamed of being a fashion illustrator. One of her friend's daughters works for Robert Kaufman's company, and saw her art school portfolio. She took the sketches to work and they are making them into print fabrics.

Dreams do come true!

I think I actually saw that fabric in a shop a couple of days ago. I wish I could remember which one so I could go back and look again after reading this awesome story!

it doesn't matter what type of sewing you do. you are sewing, and sewing is good.

If you google/bing glamour girls fabric, you'll find lots of sources. I think I'd like a skirt from this fabric! I'll have to check our local Hancock's and Joann's.
