Sewing friends are the best! You need something from China, my daughter is your girl.
So important to have friends speaking the international language of fashion! I hope in your position you get to wear one of those rockin’ hats that Queen Mary’s ladies had.
I think it’s fantastic that everyone went out of their way to help you out. I’m sorry though that you didn’t get your dress.
Love this story – thank you for sharing it!
A great story!
We were happy to help!
That’s so awesome! Great story 🙂 we have never met, but I have Sydney covered (and Tasmania!) If you need it in the future 🙂
Yay! Thanks! Luckily, I could def call Australia. But, I might need someone to actually go in to said shop 🙂

What a great story!
The problem with this story is there is more to the story. I want to read more. Why size 40?, could you have gotten the 42 and done some tucks? Do you get to rock fashion hats? Will you have to borrow Trina’s hat forms to make your own? If Milan had the dress, would you have to hop on the plane and go get it? If not, then in the future? Do you get to travel in your ‘new’ job? Get invited to celeb parties?
More details please.
I’m sorry I can’t help you as high fashion never made it to Oregon, let alone in Blush.
LOL, yes. There is more to the story. But, I can’t really say too much. And, definitely no celeb parties 🙂

Yes – more detail is indeed needed. Why not lavender? Why did it have to be Blush, what is blush anyway. What kind of garment and event are we hearing about? Is it something that you could reasonably make yourself. Oh the questions are endless!
Without saying too much, the dress wasn’t for me. After seeing the design though, I did think, ‘I could totally make this’. But, I definitely do not sew for money!

this is fabulous.
Great story! My day job is managing a yarn store – we have the largest selection on the West Coast and ship all over the world. May I suggest you look at our website for your yarn?! yarnatwebsters.com
Awesome! I love it! All my foreign language knowledge is reading knowledge, sadly 😦
Fantastic story! I do love how the passion for making things just weaves around the globe and connects us all.
How interesting and uplifting. I have to admit I was secretly hoping to hear some hilarious stories of “lost in translation!”
Before the internet, none of this would have been possible…and yet we take all this for granted. Hoping next time you can track down the desired garment and it will be a success story! Thanks for the detective story!
It really is amazing that sewing has connected us all around the world! I love this story! And you know I’m always available to pop into a NYC store if you need it!
