More Fabric Shopping!

Mucha Gracious!
I seemed to be at some crossroads of sorts. I want to thank everyone who have been so supportive. Reading your comments helped. You wouldn't know how much it meant to me..:) Thank you.


I haven't had time to sew, I was out most of the weekend. I've been pouring through some designs and clothes, figuring how and why things are cut the way they are. I think I'm about ready to start cutting out cheap fabric to test out a few things. I did manage to shop for fabrics. SW was figeting by my side all that time. Couldn't wait to usher me out of there because he was nervous about the amount of fabrics I might buy the longer I stayed. Being amused, I let him after a short while. It was kinda of distracting anyway.

There was this lovely fabric I found 2 weekends ago that I couldn't get out of my mind, so I got that. I wasn't able to capture the exact colors of the material. The background is a dark rick chocolate color and the flower motifs are a creamy cafe latte color.

It is a stretch polyester mix. I was thinking of a wrap dress. But my other half thinks it is better as a wrap blouse. Sorta like this : -

What do you think girls? What should this fabric end up as? A wrap dress, a blouse or it's calling out as something else? Give me your opinions.

Orangina is chugging along. I'm at the ribbing now. Won't be showing photos until it's done. Have patience..:)

I say a dress! What perty fabric :) Yeah, I've been getting some spammers too... I might need to go and change to the word verification at least to see if that helps as well. Can't they just leave us knitters alone?!

A dress! The one worn by the model is good.

I'll vote for the dress too!! I think it'll make a pretty frilly skirt too. Hey, you can use the leftover to make a knitting case!
