I have been trying to be good and not buy too much fabric. Then my birthday happened and I got coupons… Which I mostly was able to ignore until about 5 hours before they expired. Which is when some really fantastic looking fabrics showed up in the “new arrivals” or “clearance” sections of my favorite fabric websites. And I caved… I’m sure you know how it goes. Anyway, here are my new birthday pretties:
From Fabric Mart:
|Back: Navy cotton. It actually has a striped look.
I think I want to line it and use it for a dress…
Front: Lavender silk charmeuse. Too good a deal to pass up.
|Left: Grey/black cotton velveteen houndstooth print. Most likely for a blazer style jacket.
Back right: Plaid silk taffeta. I have plans to use this in a RTW knockoff project.
Bottom right: Cream stretch wool gaberdine. Lovely! I am going to make some white trousers.
And from Fabric.com:
|Left: Poly/cotton rainbow suiting fabric. I have plans for a pencil skirt.
Right: Rayon challis print. I am planning to use it for a summer dress.
|ITY knit prints. I am planning to use these for lightweight knit dresses.|
|Metallic cotton shirt-weight fabrics.
The photo does not do them justice.
Now I really need to get a TNT button-down shirt pattern sorted out.
Now if only I had time to sew for me… At least these will be waiting in the stash when I have time to get to them around mid-summer!
