The Fabric Mart daily sales are killin' me. Seriously, every day they put another fabrication on sale for a great price...for that day only! So for the last few weeks, a box a week has been arriving at my home. One box a week with 2 to 3 pieces in it...means I'm starting to accumulate quite a bit of fabric. Fabric that is now sitting on top of several bins because I still haven't bought the shelves to take the fabric out of the bins. Maybe I should make that a priority, huh?
Do you see the conundrum here? I truly don't need another piece of fabric but my off switch just isn't working because a large box of beautiful pontes and knits arrived earlier this week from Sawyer Brook...and I know another package of pontes is coming from Marcy Tilton soon. See what I mean? Too much coming in...too much accumulating...
So you wanna see what I got?! *LOL*
Pinky coral ponte
Border print linen
(its a border print people, of course I bought it!)
all of these pieces are from Sawyer Brook and
they are Subscriber Exclusives which hopefully
will be available to the general public soon
Just want you to know that I'm not really complaining about the fabric that I've purchased recently...I just need to make a public confession every now and then to keep myself honest.
Since it's the weekend, I'll be working on The McQueen Dress. I was going to start working on it last Monday but I needed to think through the steps on how to construct the dress. I even briefly considered making a muslin to work out my collar issues but you know how much I hate sewing muslins.
So since I also have some dark navy wool crepe, my black one will be my wearable muslin, if necessary...but if everything works...I'll move onto my next project. If it doesn't and I need to redo something, I'll use the navy blue wool crepe...either way, I'll end up with a wearable dress.
The last thing I need to do is go through the pattern collection (one more time) and find a faux welt pocket to use on the left shoulder/breast area for the dress. I'm starting to get excited about the dress because I think I've worked out the construction process for the collar and if it works it's gonna be fabu! Finally, it's nice to have two days to work on this dress so that I can concentrate and not rush through the process. Hopefully I will end up with a wonderful garment at the end of the weekend.
...as always, more later!
