I have not finished a thing. Nary a sock or scarf has come to fruition. Did I even work on the new disco skirt? NO! Would that stop me from hitting the clearance aisle at Joann for a looksie? NO! I picked up those fine fabrics you see before you for under $20. I know, I had to.
The black at the left is a pretty black rayon voile with a windowpane check woven into the fabric. It’s got a great drape and I have absolutely no idea what I’ll use it for, but at about $5 out the door I had to have it.
The black floral is a knit that I’m planning on using for the short sleeve wrap dress in view B of the Neue Mode pattern. This pattern requires a 60" wide knit fabric, and believe it or not, my extensive fabric selection did not include anything like that. I had to get the knit.
The yummy turquoise is a slinky, silky polyester that I plan on using to make some version of the short or 3/4 sleeve top in this Butterick pattern. I think the silky drape will be a great match with the ruched sides of the top, plus it may look adorable with the disco skirt. I’ve got to play with the pattern a bit, so we’ll see what I can cobble together.
Now I’ve got to get sewing! Pronto.
