I've sewn the only lemon fabric I had ~ making this dress last summer. The rosy piece caught my eye because it's precious and honestly I don't have anything like this in my fabric collection.
Earlier this spring, I purchased two border print pontes - cause border print and ponte...
BTW this is ponte still on Fabric Mart's site!
I also purchased a panel cotton voile and a rayon black and floral...
I've been on a maxi dress sew and I thought these would make amazing maxi dresses. I've also really wanted to make this dress - Simplicity 9041:
...and finally this Vogue 9253.
Yes I'm one of the last people to make this dress...
My challenge is that both dresses are fabric hogs. The S9041 takes 5.5 yds of 60" wide fabric and the V9253 takes 5 yards of 60" wide fabric. Lately the most I've purchased is 4 yards for a single piece. I own only 3 pieces of 5 yard pieces of fabric and I'm concerned that I will go crazy and purchase several pieces of 6 yard pieces for them to sit on my shelves.
I mean I own a lot of fabric...
This was when I was pulling fabric to share with a friend
...and I'd really like to make some maxi dresses that don't need a dozen buttons down the front!
So what's the point of this post...well I'm making plans and sewing but even with all of the fabric I own...I still need to buy more to make my sewing dreams come true. Does anyone else ever feel this way? *sigh*
Okay, back to my sewing machine. I'm sewing a couple of maxi dresses using patterns that aren't fabric hogs. It will probably be a minute before these come to the blog because next weekend is Memorial Day weekend. While I am working from home during these quarantine times, I do have six days off...so Imma sew. Sew to my heart's content!
...as always more later!
