Well, Saturday's trip to Penny Fabrics in Sarasota was a success!
I bought 6 gorgeous pieces of fabric and left many more beauties behind. The one that's sticking in my mind is a plaid lightweight wool. I have a strong desire for some plaid pants this year...
Anywho, first up is this turquoise rayon knit. It's nice and beefy and a bright blue color. I bought 1.5 yards, so I'm not sure if it will be a 3/4 sleeve tee or a simple knit dress. I'm thinking about playing with my embroidery machine on this one. I need to hop over to the Anthropologie site for some inspiration for a little boho stitching.
This is a tropical wool I bought to make some dress pants. It is so pretty, a light gray with lots of depth.
It's hard to tell from the pic, but this is a pale lavender cotton knit that is a bit sheer. I think this called to me because it reminds me of a sheer long-sleeved tee I had about 15 years ago. I loved that top... Anyway, though I am tempted to recreate the original, I'm leaning toward a short-sleeved open cardigan with this since I have a pale green version I wear all the time!.
This is an olive green cotton bottom-weight. It feels a lot like denim to me. I've already cut this out to be a skinnier version of my Simplicity 1696 pants. (By the way, I wore the navy ones to the fabric store, and they were a big hit!)
recent attempt at something similar. What do you think?
I didn't let myself cut into this fabric until I finished what was laying around my sewing room, so I have two new projects to photograph today. I'd better get out there before the rain comes!
