Day 1 in Paris, perfect spring weather and a bit of fabric shopping, what could be better!
I wore basic black with my new pleated linen jacket and the vendeuse (saleswoman) in the most elegant fabric shop in Paris immediately remarked on it, spun me around to see the back and was tickled to discover that I had made it.
'Tres Chic', she said!
The ancient Egyptians wore pleated linen garments.
My linen jacket ended well, but started badly
pleating saves the day...

Sale starts now and ends at midnight on Tuesday, May 28.
Have fun shopping and sewing.
I'm going into the studio to make a printed linen pant!
