New Spring / Summer Fabrics

What can I say? I bought fabric. I actually bought it last week.

Do you want to see?

I found this fabric in the home decor department. It is 100% cotton and I have a vintage Vogue pattern in mind for this fabric. Vogue 1918 has a back-buttoned skirt pattern. The front of the skirt has no seams and I thought would work to show off the print.  

I'm not sure what I will make with this white and lime green striped cotton knit fabric. All I know is that I like it and there is enough for a dress. Perhaps the newest Marcy Tilton dress?  

Okay, this fabric is a polyester knit. Not the kind of fabric that I would go for but I fell for this print and bright colours. I bought enough to make another version of Vogue 1312 and it was the dress I had in mind when I picked up this knit. Now, I'm also thinking it would be lovely as a wrap dress using Vogue  8896 (the longer version with the short sleeves).   

Believe it or not, the fabric here is a white cotton with a thin black stripe. I have enough for a long sleeve shirt. I just haven't decided on a pattern yet. And I still would love a shirt with french cuffs. Any suggestions on a pattern?  

Well, there goes my stash-busting efforts for this month. My bad.  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. I would have bought that poly knit too! What a great print.

  2. Ohhhh!!! I am loving these fabrics. The first and third ones are to die for.

  3. Oh my heart! Those are all fabulous!!!
