It probably comes as no surprise to many of you, but I'm constantly surfing the internet for fabric. There are so many pretty fabric babies out there just waiting for a new home and I can't adopt them all. So I'm staring a new blog segment called Secret Stash to feature a few choice fabrics I'm currently drooling over.* These are all things I "would" buy if a 5lb box of money fell in my lap tomorrow. Sadly the weather forecast does not predict boxes of money, so I'll just have to fabric enable all of you instead. Sorry...not sorry.
For those of you that want to eek out the last bit of summer sewing.....
Cotton Feather Batik from B & J Fabrics. It's no secret that I love feather prints and it would be super adorable made into the Pattern Runway Gathered Sundress. (The fabric also comes in a pink/brown colorway if that's more your speed)
Navy Flora Stretch Sateen from Gerties Etsy shop. Be cool like Gillian and make yourself some flora capries out of the Colette Clover pattern.
For those of you ready to start sewing for fall...
Black leathery ribs stretch brocade from Emmaonesock.com. I love the texture on this and am a bit of a sucker for any kind of stretch woven. This fabric would be totally bad ass stitched up as a Style Arc Gabby Jacket.
Silk and Beige Silk Crepe de Chine from Waechters. If beige didn't make me look like death warmed over I would have bought this already to make a luxurious Grainline Studio's Archer.
Sacre Bleu Knit rayon from Marcy Tilton. Ahhhh cobalt, I love you so much. Can we make pretty dresses together? How about a nice transitional Kitschy Coo Lady Skater dress with either 3/4 or long sleeves.
That's all for now my dears, go and stash happy.
*My thanks to Leila who said, "You know what you should do?" and it was pretty much this.
