NEW FALL INSPIRATION

My new Speigel catalog came today. Boy have I changed. Years ago I'd already be on the telephone placing my order (lol). Now a days all I want to do is bath in all the inspiration for sewing that it gives. Why am I telling myself that I can make all of these clothes?, they are beautiful!

  1. Because Fay, YOU CAN!!!!!
    That pinstripe skirt is lookin' great and that Betzina top is awsome too. Pinstripes are great, think about pink-peachy one with chocolate stripe, yummy!!!
    I have to think seriously about the jacket post, do I wanna go thru my Burda's since the -70's again?Patrones's and all the rest??? I might, though, I'm grazy that way, LOL!!!!

  3. Wow!I didn't know Spiegel still had a catalogue out. Like the others said if you put your mind to it... anything is possible. Looking forward to your Spiegel inspired garments.

  4. I love the Spiegel catalogue. You are right it is a great source of inspiration. I rarely buy the things in catalogues or magazine. I'd rather try to make it. I'm sure you'll be copying your favorite designs.

  5. I remembered my grandmother got me this jeans suit from spiegal that I wanted when I was 18,, I never wore it, but boy did I love their clothes, then I got this really nice red leather jacket from them years ago, I love that jacket, I would pay anything from that catalog even if I sew, the quality is worth the money

  6. I always loved the Spiegel catalog! It reminds me of when I was 12, and my best friend (a huge fashion diva even at that age!) was ordering from Spiegel back then.

  7. Faye .- this catalogue is incredible. I had never heard of it, so thanks for show, has some good solutions for the apparel of women. A big hug and see you soon, Paco

  8. Faye - mine is laying in the inspiration pile also. I like how they show entire wardrobes from the same fabric with accompanying tops.
