A seamstress enters a fabric store to purchase lining
Have you heard this one yet? So, a seamstress enters a fabric store to purchase lining. Does she come out with just the lining or with other fabrics too? Well, if you’re me, you come out with a whole bunch of other things. I know I speak for many other stashaholics when I say that it is nigh on impossible to walk into a store and not come out with at least two other lengths of fabric besides the one for which you went in there in the first place. When I posted a similar tale on Facebook this week, my sewing friends offered another scenario… The seamstress comes out with a bunch of fabrics and forgets the lining. That would have been very funny if that had happened. And it would have meant another shopping opportunity was needed of course. 😉
So this week, while I’ve been designing a color blocked dress in my head, I ran into my neighborhood fabric store, P&S, to buy some lining for the dress. Of course I came out with a few other fabrics as well. Of course. As I walked into the store, I noticed some great madras fabric in bright blues and reds. After making Thor’s cute shorts the other day, I knew I really loved madras fabric. So I went looking for the madras in the window (is everyone now hearing that old song about a doggie in the window now?).
Then I spied these super cute fabrics side by side each other. They would be so cute as a little girl’s dress wouldn’t they???
I couldn’t correct the colors just right. The purplish color should actually be a pink. The orange is pretty true to life though. Aren’t they cute?
Are you wondering if I remembered the lining?
Why yes I did. I really shouldn’t have bought more fabric considering how close it is to PR Weekend in May (Are you going?), but I just couldn’t resist. I am helpless in the face of cute fabrics for great prices!
In other sewing news, I recently moved my blog to a new server. So if you ever got a virus warning when trying to access my site, the problem is completely resolved.
Jack and I are away this weekend in the country, so no sewing is happening, but next week is a brand new sewing week and I am excited to start working on my dress. I bought some matching topstitching thread and I can’t wait to see how the dress will turn out.
Happy sewing everyone!
