What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by a 1950's era brooch that belonged to my grandmother, actually. All the fabrics and notions were in my stash, and they went together so beautifully that it just had to be. The combination reminds me of Mardi Gras, as well as a tip of the hat to the Year of the Dragon.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud to have a fantastic garter belt that I made myself. I am also proud that I finally had the guts to cut into those fabrics!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Dive in! The pattern is so easy to work with, with such beautiful results. You won't be disappointed!
