I've gone a little fabric crazy lately. I just can't seem to help myself, to be honest I could, it's called not going into a fabric store. But I swear the fabrics are calingl to me with their siren song. With the treasures I've found in the last few weeks can you really blame me?
This is a linen rayon blend, one of my favorites. I am a sucker for rayon, but add some linen to that and I'm hooked. Did I mention it was only $4 a yard. The weave in this fabric is absolutely amazing. Check it out:
Amazing right? The colors are a bit subdued for me, but I love love love this fabric. I got enough to make a substantial garment, but I'm going to have to brain storm the best garment for this fabric.
I also found this great batik fabric at the same shop. It was also a steal and I'm thinking a sorbetto, or better yet a dress. (I have a feeling that this is going to be the summer of the dress for me. I just love them so.)
Earlier this week I wandered into one of may favorite fabric shops and almost left with out buying anything until I found this amazing cotton print.
I just couldn't say no to cowboys on bucking broncos. This is definitely becoming a dress. It is on the to sew list right just after I finish my Jakob Flannel.
My final fabric purchase was this pretty cotton print. Like my cowboy fabric this is going to be a dress. I'm going to play around with the orientation of the print on the dress having it go vertical or horizontal depending on the pattern piece.
