It’s only fitting (though coincidental!) that it’s the start of Sewing Indie Month and the garment I’ve sewn up is from the incredible indie company, Victory Patterns!

This soft and scrumptious home decorating velvet is imported from romantic Italy, and comes in four color ways, taupe, mossy green, burnt orange or ocher. The design is a graceful Arabesque pattern, accented with open pomegranates and thistles. This velvet would be elegant made into drapes for a home library, with each window flanked by ceiling-high mahogany bookshelves, and facing a stone fireplace. This home decorating fabric is 56” wide, $145 a yard, and found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.
