Upcoming Apparel Projects

By 7/18/2014 ,

So I found a new fabric shop to try via Pattern Review, by magically the following day they have a 50% off sale. So late last night after work and dinner at Granny's, with Mom consult via Google Talk I picked out tons of apparel fabric!


This morning I made a spreadsheet of my finds (yup, nerd status), complete with swatches, definitely a pro of shopping online is the instant picture AND the full description of what type of fabric it is! I also added the intended project, since I tend to forget that... I'm sure this will be handy and avoid "fabric bin diving" in the future.

So I ended up with fabric for 6 tops. Lots of chiffon since I love the sheer boxy tee over a tank look, so I guess I'll soon be a french seam pro!

I also got fabric for 3 dresses,  which I plan to make in the new Collette Myrtle pattern, and the popular Laurel pattern.



Guess I'm diving into apparel sewing!

    1. http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/ They do 50% a specific category pretty often so hold out for that. Everything was a generous cut too proportional to what I ordered mostly between a 1/4 - 1/2 yard extra which was a nice surprise.
