Denver Fabrics is having a great sale right now and I figured I had better get a couple cuts of jersey that I liked while I could get it for $4.75 a yard! I have a couple of patterns that are at my current skill level that require jersey, but all the jersey I have found in Savannah has been upwards of $10 or even $15 a yard. Considering that I might mess up, I just cannot spend that much money on fabric right now. If you are a sewer, run over there and grab some cuts for yourself! They have quite a few cute fabrics! Here are my plans for the fabrics!I am going to research other techniques for the sleeve closing there because I think it looks Becky Home-Ecey to put elastic at the bottom of the sleeve to tighten them. I am sure I can find a way to make them cinched without looking like they do in that picture. I think this will be a cute top with this fabric!I think I am going to make the far left pattern with the bow to the side. I am in love with this jersey print and I am planning to find a contrasting solid jersey for the band under the bust and the bow/straps. I am thinking either that pretty turquoise or the fuchsia color for the contrast. I'm really excited about this one!Last, but not least is this little beauty! I am planning to make the short sleeved dress because I just think it looks so chic and with this print I can see me wearing it during Savannah's HOT summers! I just fell in love with this print! I ordered extra of it so that I could line up the pattern just so. From the sewing blogs I have been reading, I have concurred that this is a time consuming challenge. However, it always turns out looking so pretty and the best way to learn is to try challenging things!
Don't worry girls, this is not exclusively a sewing blog now! I am still going to talk about other topics and shopping at "real" stores, but I am just so excited by my new hobby that I can't help but blog about it! It is really all that has been on my mind lately, so I guess that translates into blogging about it! :) I am really looking forward to being able to make some fun garments! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I must sign off now and do that paper that is hanging over my head...and the laundry! Talk to y'all Monday!
