I've been snowed under with work this week, so my web offerings are a little sparse. I found them all pretty darn interesting, though, and hope you will, too. Have a gander while I go back to my job with a shovel, will ya?
- Artist Greg Lauren (nephew of Ralph) has a show in Los Angeles featuring men's clothing he made from paper (see images above.) The work looks incredible, and I'll definitely be checking it out. Here's the L.A. Times article on the show: Lauren has thought-provoking comments on men's fashion and self-presentation.
- New blog alert! Nancy has issued herself a challenge to sew herself a vintage wardrobe from vintage patterns. The catch? Each piece must cost less than $25 -- that's for fabric, the pattern, notions, everything. Follow her progress at 25 Dollar Vintage.
- How did I not know that there was a ZipZapKap blog?! Check out the fabulous post for true pattern geeks, Dating Mail Order Patterns. I'm so excited about it I feel like it's Christmas, though the aforementioned work is keeping me from diving into it until later. Speaking of diving in...I feel it is only fair to warn you that ZipZapKap's etsy shop is a black hole of patterny goodness. You will be lucky to escape with your pocketbook intact!
- Mother's Day sales! Gorgeous Fabrics is having 20% everything except muslin, swatches and gift certificates until May 9th; FabricMart Fabrics is also having a 20% off sale. I'm sure there are lots more -- those are just two that have popped into my inbox.
