Ok, so I went to Joann Fabrics to get the latest Butterick patterns on sale:
|They had all the patterns I wanted!
It probably helped that they forgot to put the $1.99 sale sign out…
But I made the mistake of stopping at the good Joann’s (yes, there is a good one – they have way more decent garment fabric than any other Joann Fabrics in the area, though they are also the most inconvenient to get to) and they had a lot of great summer fabrics – lots of really nice garment quality cottons and linen blends… But I did well. I was able to resist. At least, until I saw:
|My new cotton print!|
Ok, with that halter dress pattern in the upcoming July Burda on my mind (and I had already decided I wanted to do some sort of red/white/blue patriotic thing) I just couldn’t pass up this fabric. Especially not when it was on sale. So, I have fabric for a summer dress. Of course, I don’t know if I will have time to actually sew it together before July 4th, but well, if not for this year, then next year.
