The "This Would Have Been Handy in Dar es Saalam" Yard Sale ...
Added Mar 25, 2010
The pattern comes from the fantastic Weekend Sewing by the incomparable Heather Ross. The fabric, I picked up somewhere between Tabora and Kigoma in Tanzania, where I was busy walking from one shore (the Indian Ocean, in Bagamoyo) to another (Kigoma, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika).
I actually kept the fabric jealously hoarded for over a year before finally finding the perfect pattern. I think I was right to wait. Blog post here: http://corvustristis.wordpress.com/2010/01/26/long-awaited-project-by-me-at-least/
