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!!!


I'm tempted.

My sewing mojo is defrosting and with some milder temperatures on the way and a morning last week filled with birds chirping, I'm tempt...
