While I was on vacation in New York, I got lots of fabric for upcoming projects. Because GARMENT DISTRICT.
I made a big list of patterns and their fabric and notion requirements and hit the stores!
I got some lovely dark grey non-stretch cotton twill for a Minoru jacket for fall, along with some bright blue synthetic lining fabric.
This light blue chambray is from Mood and was just too soft to pass up. I bought three yards and am hoping to squeeze a dress from a vintage pattern Greg got me, McCall's 5238. I loved this dress on Mad Men and shamelessly bought the pattern after someone on Lucky Lucille suggested the pattern for her Mad Men Challenge dress.
Got some bright pink knit for a Renfrew shirt. (I asked the crowd if it was too pink for a t-shirt, and they assured me it was not!)
I have a yard and a half of this lovely fabric, from the remnant bin at AK Fabrics. Skirt maybe? I don't have a definite plan for this one, I just liked it a lot.
Greg found this lurking in the back of the pile at Chic Fabrics ("Oooh, coral flowers! You love coral!" -- I love this man.) I've never used a border print before, so no idea what I'll make with it. Probably a dress or skirt.
Polka dots! My one true love. I'll make a blouse from this. Probably New Look 6808 again.
Black slightly stretchy twill for a Kelly skirt, with attendant buttons from Mood.
Plain cotton knits in black and white for tank tops.
Super soft velvety brushed cotton in a lovely navy color. Skirt!
Dark wash denim for a Hollyburn skirt. And buttons to go with it:
I also got some grey cotton canvas to make into shorts (or another skirt) and some black knit yoga pants-esque fabric to make some Tofino pants.
So lots of skirts in my future -- but if we want to get real here, that's pretty much all I wear -- and I like to sew what I like to wear!
What's your next project?
