New fabric from Fabric.com. To think there was once a time when I was anti-stash! Muhuhahahahah!
This satiny silky flower fabric is lovely...and posesses all of the things that terrify me about fabric. It's slippery and delicate and very very scary! I want this to be a big floaty-skirted evening gown but I'd settle for a big floaty-skirted day dress. I think deserve a dress that is not made of quilting cotton! Now if only I could get over my fear of sewing with slickery fabric...and of the pattern below, which I think would be perfect for this.
I think this green dot would make a nice suit. I'd use the sleeveless, narrow skirted version of the pattern below and I'd make a 3/4 sleeve, waist length, reversable jacket lined in white. I'd accessorize it with short white gloves and a perky white cocktail hat. Quick, someone invite me to a wedding so I'll have somewhere to wear it!
I think this yellow flowered cotton would make a great day dress with wide kimono sleeves. I think that either version of the pattern below would be super. I'd use bright yellow baby blanket binding on the sleeve edges and the hemline. Sunny fun!
