…which seems to put a damper on my ability to write entertaining slush. So, instead, you get pictures of more clothes I plan on making but, in reality, will never have time to complete. (Hey, I’m just being honest. I will try and try, but there are only so many hours in a day and too many of them have to be filled with homework.)
I should mention that these are all knit/jerseys. Every last one of them. And most of them were around $2-6/yard (fabric.com).
I was cleaning and reorganizing my office this weekend (that I’d love to tell you about, but still don’t have pictures because I didn’t get home until after 9 last night), and have stored together all of the apparel fabrics with the patterns that I intend to use them with. There’s a smaller pile of apparel fabrics that I can’t seem to match up to a pattern, and those got stored elsewhere.
My hope is that having some of the decisions made will make it easier to start a project. Were I really ambitious, I’d cut out the pattern pieces (just the tissue, not the fabric) and get them ironed too. No cutting out of fabric until I’m ready to go, though, just in case my measurements change, or I change my mind about the match-up, or… whatever. Life happens.
Really, I would love to leave work early (I won’t) and go work on that grey floral dress. Or at least touch the fabric some more, because it is yummy.
As always, feel free to weigh-in on the match-ups of pattern and fabric. I know it’s hard to make judgments based on a picture of fabric, but don’t let that stop you.
