Yesterday, Carlos over at Vogue Patterns posted this incredibly beautiful version of Vogue 1642 on Instagram.
I would so wear that! And I stopped by my local Fabricland on my way home and searched out a beautiful floral from the Maduri silk collection, circa 2016, that is now in the discounted home décor section. I've been all smitten over this collection of fabric for quite some time and had picked up several cuts from this collection. I was quite shocked when the salesperson tried to tell me that the reduced price was $17.00 / metre instead of the $14.00 / metre I know it was priced at. Because the price tag was faded she tried to argue it was $17.00 despite the fact that I took her to the section I picked it up from and showed her matching fabric labels. I wasn't willing to debate with the same salesperson who recently gave me the wrong size for the pattern I ordered, even if the pattern error ended up working out for the pants. But I digress...
I wasn't willing to continue the debate and just decided to walk away, even though I was still smitten over the floral version that Carlos posted. I just decided that it wasn't meant to be and besides I have a black and white cotton tweed in my stash that will work just fine thank you very much.
And just as God works in mysterious ways, this popped out from the pages of my fabric locator binder. I have a floral fabric in my stash and it has been there for years!
And it is even more perfect than the Maduri silk that I was thinking about yesterday. Isn't it beautiful how things work out for the best. I have a lot to be thankful for today.
The fabric is already pre-treated and ready to cut. So, on that note, I'm going to get to work.
