This past weekend, I did a few things. I went to the LA fabric district to look for fabric on a few projects. I has been a while since I was able to treat myself to some nice fabric. I haven't found many patterns lately that I've been interested in, but I have been craving some fabric.
For one project in particular, I have a trade going on with a lovely etsy seller. She has a dress that I have my eye on, and in exchange, she wants a dress made from one of my repro patterns.
I adjusted the pattern, used some fabric from one of my previous jaunts to the district and made up a mock up. It's on it's way to her for a try on and if it fits fine, I have the fashion fabric already in the waits.
Now, back to the fabric.
since my favorite place closed, I went to my second favorite store which is a bit more pricy, but they have lots and lots of rolls of fabric. That was where I got this great linen for about $6 a yard (60" wide).
This is going to be my last PPP dress!
I'm hoping to get it done by Halloween because I'm going to a bake sale and helping raise money for the Dance-A-Thon.
I also got the fabric pieces for new repro, the Soldier Doll.
Very excited about these!! I'll keep you posted.
I also got some lace (cotton) for trim on more underthings. I'll work on those shortly.
Look at that pink! This is suppose to be my halloween costume, but I'm on the fence. I'm tired and the party I'm supposed to go to is this Saturday, and I am so overextended this weekend (yay) so I don't know if I'll have the time to make it! We will see.
My main focus is the PPP tress for the actual Halloween day/night. Okay, I'm tired and I have a big day at work tomorrow! Oh! Don't forget to donate!
Have a great Tuesday, all!
