OMG! Could I ever relate to Elizabeth's tale about fabric shopping over at SEWN.
I too went into a fabric store yesterday, not for lining, for the fabric that my niece picked out for her grad dress. And yes, I also came out with significantly more, including lining.
I bought this royal blue stretch sateen that I am thinking would look lovely made into Vogue 1233. I also picked up matching blue lining.
This bright blue 100% cotton fabric is for the Burda Style 7215 skirt, version A.
And when I got the fabric home I discovered that it matches the shade of blue found in the yellow print fabric I picked up on a recent trip to the fabric store. Sweet.
This is my favourite fabric score from this shopping trip. It is a 100% cotton swiss dot fabric. And I love the shade of green.
There was also yellow, blue, white, black and pink. It was a tough decision. Okay, maybe not. I do have enough yellow in my fabric stash to keep me going for awhile.
This swiss dot fabric I will save for a blouse. I haven't decided on which one yet. There is enough for a long sleeve blouse though.
And don't worry, I didn't forget to pick up the fabric for my niece's grad dress. I'll have to get busy on cutting it out soon. But it has been a long week and I think I'm going to save it for when I'm in a focussed frame of mind.
And that is all in sewing news today.
