Like I need more stash.
Oh, but I do!! FabricMart AND Fabric.com tempted me with sales! What's a sewing deprived sewist to do?
From Fabric Mart, a couple of acetate lining fabrics in olive and pink, black lace yardage, black poly satin (perhaps to underline the lace?) and some pink seersucker. I also tossed a mystery bundle into the cart.
If you're unfamiliar with the Fabric Mart mystery bundle (as I was) please go rectify that oversight at once. The deal is that you get 10 yards of their choice for 15 bucks. Even if they all sucked, 1.50 a yard is still good for muslin fabric, so what have you got to lose. But these are all awesome fabrics!! I got a heavy black satin, purple and green printed voile, periwinkle ponte knit (yum!!), dark purple sateen (enough for a dress, double yum!!) and some tan tropical wool suiting. And each piece was over 2 yards, so this was much more than 10 yards total. What a deal!
During fabric.com's extra 30% off clearance sale, I picked up these lovelies. Tan poly suiting, pink stretch pique, blue check cotton shirting, lavender ottoman knit and some dark burgundy stretch gabardine. I also got a skein of Berrocco Sox yarn so that I can attempt my first pair of socks. Stay tuned for that!
Then fabric.com had the audacity to have a sale on knits!! I cannot resist knits, as you may know. More than half my stash is knit fabrics and I love to sew them. These are a border print stretch peachskin, a polka dot crinkle knit, a couple of lengths of slinky in lavender and turquoise, some pink matte jersey and a cool black lightweight jersey with lurex stripes.
I also picked up the scarf collar top pattern from Jalie. All these new stretch fabrics deserve a new Jalie pattern!!
The total damage was about 50 yards of fabric. It sure adds up fast! I'm not really sure when I'm going to get a chance to start sewing up some of these yummy fabrics.
My sewing room looks like this, and I have a bridesmaid dress to alter and a bolero to make before I can get to the fun stuff. At least I can still knit...
