While wondering around Spotlight (unfortunately about the only decent fabric store in my area & similar to JoAnn's for those in the US), I decided I would be brave and try a jersey dress. This is the fabric I'm going to use ... I think I am also going to use this as part of my CP Spring Palette challenge (but I'm going to do Autumn). The colours haven't come out very well - it is chocolate brown and red.
oooooh... I love it.. this is beautiful..
I have been buying quite a bit of thrift shop fabric lately... in my defense, it's been really cheap and always enough to make a garment from! Here's a small sample of what I've added to my stash (oh the shame, there's much more!):
I can't imagine what I could make from the top left fabric that wouldn't burn out the retina with colour/pattern overload. But... you never know! I bought the green mock embroidered flower fabric because it intrigued me... again, could possibly be pattern overload in something like a dress. I'm hoping there's enough of the grey flower fabric to make a pencil skirt.
My two favourites are in this photo - the check fabric with tiny embroidered flowers (enough for a 50s style dress!) and the pink dotted swiss (it looks and feels like quite an old fabric - I want to make a skirt but am still deciding on style). The blue is a bit different but it was 4 metres for 20 cents. You can't beat that!
