Fabric Fair haul
As I told you before I went to a fabric fair this weekend and I wanted to share the fabrics I bought there, and what projects I plan to use them for.
Firstly I bought this cute black polka dotted fabric for a Mc calls summer dress. I actually wanted stripes, but since I found this for two euros a meter well, what can I say... I have tons of striped clothing in my closet anyway...
Then there's tons of creamy white fabric, this might become a Marilyn Monroe dress, or just a couple of shirts, since my favourite ones all got pink in the washing machine some time ago. I love the Monroe dress, although I think it won't flatter my figure, and it's one of those dresses that will stay in the closet most of the time, on the other hand, my copy cat side is itching for it, and I would actually like to experiment with pleating fabrics at home.
Then there's a dark teal fabric that I plan to combine with Orange-Yellow ribbon to make the Butterick pattern I told you about in my first post. I'm really in love with this colour!
I also bought a nice and warm looking fabric at another incredible discount for the Joan dress. Since it's spring here, winter fabrics where hard to find and I really had to look for something that could emulate the coaty look of the dress. I think with enough interfacing this fabric might just pull that off.
Lastly, well really lastly, I bought something cute for my boyfriends birthday, but I'm not telling. Only that I will blog about it, after his birthday that is.
