I had a lovely Christmas with my family, but none of my gifts were sewing related (gasp!). So I'm sure in subconcious retaliation I've taken full advantage of the post-christmas sales...
First, on Boxing Day I went into the city with Kat to go to the Clegs remnant sale. I was very restrained and only bought one piece of fabric, this disrupted-striped jersey (1.6m):
Then yesterday I popped across to spotlight with Oanh to see if they had anything that struck my fancy, and they sure did! I'm a sucker for nice printed cottons (or poly-cottons), and this time of year Spotlight never disappoints!
First this pear print searsucker is destined to become a dress (2.5m):
And a fruit print voile, probably also a dress (2.5m):
I couldn't go past this chiffon on the sale table, it's so beautiful (3m):
And this chiffon will probably become another pendrell blouse (1.5m):
And how cute are these birds! This poplin will probably also become a dress, or maybe a skirt (2.5m):
This is also a voile and so striking. This will be a dress or a gored skirt, I haven't decided (2.5m):
I absolutely fell in love with this peacock print voile when Oanh spotted it! It MUST become a dress with some fussy cutting to perfectly place the peacock! (2.5m):
Another printed voile, probably another dress (2.5m):
I don't know what this was, but it has gorgeous drape. I bought it to give to my Gran to potentially become a Sorbetto (1.5m):
Of course none of it was for the two projects I have planned: my Cordova jacket and Hollyburn skirt, but nevermind, there are plenty more fabric shops to visit! The big decision now is where to start...?!
