    Chère Mademoiselle Caramia, Bonne Année également a toi! Pleine de projets excitants! The pants were made out of a cheap heavy duty cotton fabric (although it has the same thickness of medium denim). It took a while to remove the excess dye when washing it. Re- the stone wash effect, it is going to be disapointing but, have a look at my creation ‘Post-raphaelite’. I had just finished it then. Two years afterwards-I have been wearing it a LOT- loads of washing, kneeling and sitting has giving this ‘stone wash effect’. In brief, don’t let time ‘stonewash’ your patience! Or vice versa… This is ‘la moralité du jour’!:) Much love! H

      C’est dommage, but I guess you are right, I will have to be patient! :D

      Yes! The good thing is you won’t have to apologize for sitting down too much during the stonewash process. :) If I hear about a good stonewashing plan, I let you know. But one day or the other, some one will has to sacrifice a washing washing: filling it with flint stones and the denim.Bonne Journée!

    Jealous of your fabric shopping expedition! Have you checked out Button Button in Gastown? A pound of buttons for 2 toonies. So, basically all the random buttons you’ll ever need. (Actually, in my pound of buttons, there were at least 2 of everything and some nice ones too!)

    Hey, where did you find that little kid’s vintage pattern? I’m trying to figure out where they’d have that kind of stuff in E-town.

      I bought it at the church thrift shop here in Salmon Arm. You could try calling around the different thrift shops… maybe is there a Mennonite clothes closet in Eddie? For some reason old church ladies seem to purge their pattern collections at thrift stores :)

      Let me know if you’re coming through here this summer and you can always trace stuff off me. OR we can go to the thrift store together! It’s a goldmine for sewing stuff!
