Friday Fabric Finds: March 25th
In an effort to have a more consistent editorial calendar here at the Sew Weekly, I present the inaugural Friday Fabric Finds. I'll share my thrifted, vintage and new purchases of the past week. Here's what I thrifted this week:
The above fabric is a gorgeous print. The fabric type? Not so much. It's some synthetic stretchy fabric of some type that won't really work for anything other than a clingy shirt or dress. Still, I couldn't resist the print. It may turn out to be a pleasant surprise if I ever make it up.
This circle fabric is an extra-long pillow case. I think I can squeeze a blouse out of this. Or, possibly a skirt.
This fabric has the feel of barkcloth and is a very late 60s/70s print. It was in the process of being turned into a pantsuit when it was abandoned. I may try to make a bag/purse out of it.
Brown gingham! As I said in my post over at Elegant Musings, I desperately want to make a brown gingham skirt. There may be enough to be a skirt, but it's unlikely. I should be able to make a tank top at the least.
This rayon print is really not my style but I've learned not to pass on good rayon yardage.
I'm pretty sure that this rayon came from the same source as the previous fabric. I'm not crazy about the print but as I said above, I'm reluctant to pass on a nice rayon (3 yards of it).
Did you have any good finds this week?
