So first of all, here are the new pretties...
From Jo-Ann Fabrics (white and brown) and Fashion Fabrics Club (teal):
|White houndstooth jacquard cotton/poly blend, brown pinstripe poly-rayon-lycra |
(yes, the fabric from the encounter with the QuiltB), and teal cotton sateen.
|Purple cotton plaid for my sister's shirt re-make.|
Rainbow cotton plaid for a dress for me.
|Teal and light blue stretch lace (for the March Burda cardigan), |
white embroidered cotton eyelet (for the March Burda skirt),
and multi-colored houndstooth wool (because it was super cheap and awesome).
And from Fabric Mart:
|Purple rayon challis print (meant for the March Burda ruched top halter dress)|
Pastel cotton/rayon boucle blend (meant for the March Burda 3/4 sleeve jacket)
|Vera Wang acetate linings.|
|More Vera Wang acetate linings.|
|Free fabric bundle: lime cotton plaid (for PJs!), black cotton-ish |
broadcloth (for a muslin), and brown knit print.
So, obviously, after a few months of not buying much at all I went a bit fabric crazy. Though in my defense most of this is $1.99 lining fabric. And as for the rest, well, I am really inspired to make a lot of the pieces from the March Burda right now. So while I still want to try to stick to my year-long sewing goals in general, I have been re-working my plans for now through the end of March... And moving around some of my other challenge projects, since there are things I still really need to make, but didn't get to what with all of the mojo-crushing flu bugs I have been dealing with. Oh well. The projects I will be moving around will still fit with my "seasonally appropriate" theme - besides, grey trousers are always in season (at least if you are a skating judge). In the end I guess we all just sew what we can in the time that we have.
