I really have to get sewing. It's much faster to buy than to sew, but what's a girl to do when Fabricland has a 50% off sale and I have time to kill before a party? The party Friday was around the corner from my clients office. Given that Mr. Lina didn't want to come, I figured I'd stay at work a bit late, kill some time at Fabricland, add a stop to the liquor store for a house warming gift and I'd be on time.
I was good, at least, by my standards. I only bought 3 pieces of fabric. First, plum stretch satin. I have wide stretch elastic that will match this perfectly for a bra. I bought 1m, it's enough for some pretties. This picture has a bra I made (and loved until the front clasp broke) and you can see how much better this satin will match the lace than what I used before.
Lazy Subcultural Girl for this purchase because of her lovely skirt. I showed my husband and he said pants and I thought Clover... so we'll see, there is a pant buzz starting to work at the back of my head.
Third, a knit. Look at this, this is a Seraphinalina fabric. All purple and print-like. It has nice drape and feel to it. 2m again.
So end of shopping trip. All told, the bill was $45 for the fabric and fray check (also 50% off). Not too shabby.
This is the fabric for my unloved dress that will likely be a tunic. Nice, I'm not saying I don't like it, but I don't feel the excitement that I do about my purple fabric.
And this is a fabric I bought a while ago and didn't post. It has pin tucks running through it. It's cotton, a nice shade of burgundy (another favourite colour of mine) and it's a little narrow. I'll have to measure it when it's out of the wash. I dunno what I'm going to do with it, but it was on super clearance so I wasn't turning it down. I'll find the right project one of these days. That spool of thread is actually red red, the fabric is darker than the picture shows.
