Hello Bloggy Friends! Today's post is all about the fabric. :) This was my first time attempting to plan out a whole wardrobe. Knowing what an
ADD indecisive creature I can be, I limited my colors to black and white. (Grey may be added later) Even with my narrow color options I still spent a good two hours in Jo-Anns waffling back and forth. Man, can I just say how much it sucks to buy fabric in stores compared to online? Ignoring the whole "touching the fabric before you buy it thing." It is expensive! Don't even get me started on G Street Fabrics, which is located in the traffic hell called Seven Corners, VA. I refuse to drive in Seven Corners. I am not exaggerating when I say I probably could've gotten 3x the fabric had I purchased it online. Alas, that's what happens when you try and move in two days. :sigh: Anywhoo, time for the pretties!
|3 yards. Cotton blend w/ glitter. I'll use this for one of the dresses and try to squeeze out a top with any extra.|
|1.75 yards. Poly blend. Tunic top, most likely M5851 sans bows or yo-yos.|
This is it so far. There are some pretties (on sale!) online that I'm keeping an eye on. But first I have to sew up some of this. The Hubster gives me the evil eye every time I mention more fabric. Well, he should've been more specific when he said, "Just buy more fabric." I don't think he'll underestimate my fabric buying powers anymore. LOL!
Toodles for now, bloggy friends. I've got a muslin to sew. Aloha, all!
