This fabric was my first and only online fabric purchase almost a year ago. I thought it was the prettiest thing. When it arrived in the mail, I was excited. When I pulled it out of the package it was bouncy like a yo-yo. I had not even sewn anything yet ever in my life and I knew I was not ready to work with that kind of fabric. I learned a lesson that day- All fabric is not created equal. So began my stash.
Since then I have leared a few things and when the Yellow challenge came up I thought I would take a crack at it. It had to be something simple. I followed the directions for the "First Times a Charm Cardi" from Brett Bara's book. The title was fitting for my situation, right? It was ment to be and it turned out great, I think.
The fabric is thin and slinky and when I put it on I feel like it is ment for the boudoir. So I am going to add a tie belt to it and wear it as a robe. When I made the decision that it would not see the light of day, literaly, I left the hem undone.
