Saturday surprises and a rare weekend posting from me! Well, not exactly surprises since I was expecting them; I received two fabrics today. One in the mail, and another from a friend and fellow sewist. First the mailed fabric: I bought some cotton shirting from Reprodepot the other day. It’s a cowboy theme to go along with the indian buttons I bought off Etsy the other day too. I think they’ll look cute together. Now I just need to find a simple little boy shirt pattern. Hmmm…
The other fabric is for a mini sew along with my friend Tanya. She emailed me the other day asking if I wanted her fabric. It was a stretch cotton and I think she wanted a plain cotton, no stretch. She had 6 yds of it! I don’t know what she was planning to make with it, but I told her I would be happy to take 3 yds off her hands. Tanya suggested that we have a sew along using the same fabric and see what we both come up with the 3 yds each. I thought that was a fun idea.
So what should I do with this?
I’m thinking a simple summer unlined sheath dress. Pattern suggestions?
