I was looking for some canvas.....canvas would so not be calling my name. I turned the corner, the voice got louder...so I looked and looked. I was in the Fashion Knits aisle. I have yet to sew with this kind of fabric so it couldn't possibly be this row, I am a woven kinda girl.
Oh noooooooo, it is this row!
Oh nooooooooooo, it looks awful from the back!
Oh noooooooooooo, it's what?????
Pre ruffled cheetah print knit. O M G and a half. I have no words,
but it came home with me...a whole yard. LOL
This will, indeed, be an adventure.
The rest of my purchases were a lot more socially normal.
The aforementioned burlap......whatever was on the bolt.
This pattern (99¢) becasue my grand daughter loves the view of the blue sleeping bag looking one.
I should say she is most happy sleeping in that style of garment and winter is closer than we think.
This April Johnson knit (60% off) and this 99¢ pattern.
Can you say maxi dress? Sure, I knew you could.
Some black jersey to go with the ruffled cheetah print fabric.
I must be nuts. I will be making the longer version with the black top.
I can't decide if I want it tank style or with the cap sleeves.
I have barely sewn with knits, let alone preruffled knits. LOL
Any tips about fit and construction would be more than welcomed!!
After I get the reception sewing done and some quilt blocks for a swap and the baby blankets I have laying all over the place, I will be in full clothes sewing mode.
I have a muslin ready for adjustments and now two patterns ready to try!
Uh-oh....the cat found the burlap....Bobo....get off of that!!! Shoooooooo
