I really want to try a couple summer versions of this Simplicity top that I just worked with. In the correct size, this time! So, these two fabrics will be camis or summery tank. The print is a batiste and the solid is a silk (remnant, yay me!).
Picked up this skirt pattern for a buck last week, and love the few soft pleats (only in the front), in the shorter length (the red one on the envelope). Both of these prints will work, and the fuschia silk cami will match! Woo hoo!
This spring and summer has me attending a few dressier events: commencement, a retirement party, and my sister's wedding. I really like the (potential) fit of this Vogue pattern, so I grabbed this black and white linen/poly blend, along with a little solid black for the bands on view B. Not sure if I'll embellish the bands or not...
This gold print knit is a little different for me, but I think it will look great as view C on this McCall's pattern that I've used before and would love to do again.
I also stumbled across this gray acrylic wool that I saw the last time I was at the store and didn't purchase. At half-off, I didn't make the same mistake twice! I'll use it for the fall, maybe a jacket or a skirt...
I can't lie, I did also visit Joann's this week, but it was a waste of time. I found two prints I really liked, and used my 50% coupon. This cotton sateen is so lovely with the hints of coral around the flowers, I'm not sure if this will be another skirt (see above) or a cute sundress. I like this New Look, everytime I wear my version I get compliments so maybe the halter version would be cute.
I love this Retro Butterick '46, but have been waiting for the right fabric to come along. I like this floral rayon, I think the scale of the print is perfect for view B.
Now, I know there isn't a BWOF in the bunch (or pants!), so I'll be honest. I love the styles and the fit, but I absolutely hate tracing. That's why I haven't tried the Jalie jeans yet, and I know it's a crappy excuse. I'm sure I'll get back to it soon. And if you're wondering how much money I spent on fabric this weekend, I'll tell you this... I averaged between $10 and $15 per garment. Not bad in my book!
