I’m in love with M6069

It’s official!  I’m in love with M6069. 


 I have already cut out another version in a border print knit I bought from Metro Textiles in Feb 2010.  I chose this knit because I thought the border print would give the dress a completely different feel so no one would notice that it’s the same dress pattern.  I definitely smell a TNT in the making here folks! 


Isn’t it pretty? 

While I was hunting for the next M6069 knit, I realized I don’t have that many knits in my stash right now.  How can that be?!?!?  So, since I loved the rayon/lycra knit I just used, I ordered some more of it from FabricMart on line last night.  They are having their pyramid of savings sale right now.  I ordered these lovely prints from the trendy knits section.  Click on the pictures to go to the link and purchase some for yourself…


And because I loved the pink/red version so much, I bought the blue/green version of the Ikat knit print.  *heart*


In other news…  A few of you have asked about the smoke situation in my apartment.  Unfortunately, it’s still an issue.  The plumbing holes in the kitchen were sealed and that has helped a lot, but now we get second hand smoke from under the front door.  Sometimes it’s so bad it reaches my bedroom which is the farthest room from the front door as possible.  I am still working with building management, but due to lack of communication, progress has been slow and is currently at a standstill.  We’ll see what happens by the end of the week.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Happy sewing everyone!

    You need to sew your self a snake. It prevents drafts from coming in along the base of doors. Basically, sew a 1-2″ diameter tube and close one end. Beans or rice were used to fill it, sew the other end closed and lay it along the base of the door to prevent drafts. I would fill it with activated carbon from an aquarium supply store.

      I have a snake and it doesn’t work. 🙁

    Love your new knit fabric choices (the “Mosaic” tile pattern one + the black/white are my personal favs :)).

    Re: the smoke – until the building management sort you out with a better solution – would attaching some kind of lightweight draft-excluder to the bottom of the door help perhaps (those sausage-shaped cushion type ones maybe)?

    That fabric is going to make another wonderful dress.

    I’m glad you were able to work out your issues with version number 1 which looks great. You have some gorgeous knits in your collection, no wonder you want to make some more of these dresses.

    I really like the fabric you picked for version 2.
