|Testing Possible Quilting Lines|
B5526 Number One Ladies pattern, variations of which I've blogged and podcasted about many times.
Both fabrics are Tanna Lawn, from Liberty of London - another place I've blogged and podcasted about many times! The Tanna Lawn is very delicate and fluid. I thought that by adding a quilted design to the mandarin collar (just the collar stand with no additional pointed collar piece), I might add some nice texture and contrast to the drape-y shirt. I'm using Postit tape, to figure out how I might want the quilted lines to flow.

BTW - The contrasting facing and collar fabric is the William Morris design "Strawberry Thief". It's one of my all time favorite prints.
