It was a few weeks ago when Mena from The Sew Weekly emailed me about the Common Thread series going on over at her blog. I was instantly intrigued and was totally excited to be apart of something like this. I haven't used a lot of trims in sewing projects and it was nice to be challenged to make a garment using this lace trim. And boy, was it a challenge for me! I had no idea what I was going to do with the lace. I looked and looked around trying to get inspired by something. Finally I decided that I needed some sort of belt or sash in the project. I went digging through my pattern stash and decided on the Heidi pattern from Burda Style. After I had decided on the pattern, everything else fell into place. What fun I had! Hop on over to The Sew Weekly and tell me what you think of Modern Geisha.
