Pretty much as soon as I was done writing my post from yesterday, UPS pulled up and dropped off my fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics!
I ordered a yard of this funky knit to make another drop-sleeve top like the one out of the Fandango fabric, but at 60″ wide, it seems like I could make something else since there would be so much extra fabric left over. I might try to find another top pattern when I go to JoAnn on Saturday. I still want the top to be work appropriate.
Which brings me to this beauty:
I knew I had to have it the minute I this Pucci-like print. “Buy me!” it screamed, but I had no idea what to do with it. I thought that maybe a flouncy blouse would do the trick, like Butterick 4659 (ViewD). But then when I unfolded the fabric, I realized just how big of a print the fabric is:
I’m afraid that when I make the above mentioned blouse, which has several pieces to it, the pattern will be lost. I mean it’s worth a shot, and heck I’ll get some kind of neat looking blouse out of it, but I’m still worried that the print is meant for something like lining a coat.
