I confess. I made another trip to Vancouver and my favourite fabric shop. And, yes, I bought more fabric! (But it was soo soo fun!)
I plan on working on my pants sloper soon and then jeans after that.
I bought this 96% cotton/4% lycra with just a little bit of stretch for my jeans…
and plan on using my Vogue 8774 jeans pattern. Has anyone else tried this pattern?
I also bought this dark blue wool blend. It has a “boucle” feel to it. Someday I hope it is transformed into this lovely jacket from my collection, Vogue pattern 1418.
I have another dress pattern, Vogue 1336, that uses colour blocking and I think I will use these new fabrics for this dress. These fabrics are both Brazil Stretch ITY Jersey knits, 94% polyester/6% lycra.
Look at this wild skirt pattern, Vogue 1292, I don’t have the faintest idea how to the put the bottom ruffles together, but I am dying to try it with this striped fabric, a polyester knit.
Now I need some suggestions for a couple of dress patterns. Not too fitted in the bodice. Gathered/full skirt. For these two fabrics. One is a Batic 100% rayon. I used a similar fabric for my Sewaholic Yaletown. It has a lovely drape to it.
And this one is a Misty Stretch ITY Slub Jersey Knit, 96% polyester/4% lycra. This fabric is so soft and the flowers literally jump off the fabric at you!
These two are more summer-y fabrics and it hasn’t stopped raining here for quite a number of days now, so I have lots of time to think about dress patterns. But what do you think? Do you have any suggestions? What is your favourite dress pattern?
Love to hear from you!
