It didn’t matter that my first is planned, a yellow stretch terry top …
I still ended up with my first fabric haul in years:
Clockwise from top left, 1 1/2 yards of 45″ 100% cotton print, 4 yards of 60″ wide 100% rayon challis floral print (in two pieces)and 2 yards of 45″ wide poly/cotton rainbow striped fabric. And the price was only $17.37.
I’ve chosen the patterns for the cotton print and poly/cotton stripe but I don’t know what to do with the rayon challis. I’m thinking something from the late 1930’s or early 1940’s but I’m just not sure. Is this a good era for this print?
I’ve found so much inspiration on this blog: Laurie’s simple and pretty dress as well as the great photo of her Nana on her blog, Rachel’s comfy floral dress made from a 1942 nightgown pattern – smart girl, Cecili’s green dress with the great sleeves, Mama Long’s 1937 casual evening dress … well, you get the idea.
As always, thanks for all of the inspiration.
