Tale of two fabrics
This is the fabric I bought with no real project in mind. It's hard to tell (because I'm a terrible photographer), but it's yellow, and there's an embroidered pattern as well. Super cute. I'm thinking I want to make a summer shirt. I actually went to buy the pattern on line, thinking to save myself the trip north, but the shipping to Canada was as much as the pattern. Ridiculous.
The second fabric I bought while checking out a fabric store not that far from my place (verdict: pretty good! Nice fabrics, well labelled, seemed cheap enough, plus they had notions, which was exciting. No patterns, though.) I believe it's a crepe - I've only sewn with cottons before, so that should be fun. The funny thing is that I bought it with the memory of having ordered a Colette shirt pattern online, but when I got home I remembered that I'd bought a dress pattern, but the shirt was out of stock. So now I have 2 fabrics and no patterns! Oops.
