***I have the address of everyone who won the giveaway. I promise I will be sending prizes out this weekend. I have some type of issue with going to the post office!***
It's been 30 days since I bought fabric. Yes, I sound like an addict; I am aware :)
This last purchase was stress induced and I decided to fast after realizing I FORGOT that I even ordered it. I came across the pics in my phone last night. Sad. Sad. Sad. But there are some beauties so I will share! :-)
This stuff feels AMAZING.
The color is a (purposely?) faded look. I don't love it. But it'll likely become a top.
I don't like this as much as I thought I would. It'll sit though and maybe speak to me. I'm almost thinking M6886 though (interesting print, simple pattern)
Bought expressly to be a wearable muslin of V1387. If I can make it work I will spring for silk. I have never sewn silk!
The color on this is AMAZINGLY vibrant! I want a kimono tee from this. Cute for layering!
Sweater knit that'll likely sit until fall.
Bought solely to make a scarf.
Four of these patterns are for my daughter. E.g. The second copy of the bra top pattern. She wants the bandeau top to wear underneath things. So at $1, no problem! :) also a hidden McCalls sweatshirt pattern, S2414, S1918. I had to repurchase M6927.
While making my black and white top from it, the iron spewed water all over the pattern tissue. Ouch. Ok...I'll just have to try to keep it perfectly flat until it dries...well the next time I went to reach for the pattern, somehow a fabricmart label got stuck and those labels are STICKY. Just ripped a huge chunk out of the pattern.
I was going to use the (untouched) C cup pieces and do a small FBA but then...it's $1.40!!! My sanity was worth $1.40 so I bought a new one.
In the catalog for Simplicity 1426, she has on the black and white polka dot bra top and amazing yellow shorts. The catalog incorrectly lists these as S1887. She's actually wearing view D or E of 1464 and if you look past the dowdy model outfit those inverted pleats (??) are pretty dang cute.
I'm going to make the shorts as a wearable muslin with a plan to make the pants (in red!!!).
I'm rethinking 1462 because, why does it have so many pieces. Gah.
My hand has been treated AGAIN and I am resting it so no sewing yet. I need to make my daughter's bandeau top, make my polka dot top, ooh I need to make another pair of work pants, and I want to make my jacket. But I want to make those shorts and I owe two aprons and yeah...
310 plans :) as usual...
This morning I wore my Burda jacket in and the receptionist (who sews), asks in mock disgust, "you made that didn't you? Dammit. You make me look bad!" (as she's been sewing as long as I've been alive!) :)
And yep, the weather is still crappy.
