I feel like it has been forever since I last posted. I have been sewing and I am still on track with my Ready To Wear fast. I recently ventured into the world of on-line fabric shopping. I purchased quite a bit of fabric from two places. The first set is from #Greys Fabric, which has beautiful cottons and batiks among other fabulous fabrics. I absolutely loved the fabrics when I saw them.
I also shopped at #fabric.com for some wonderful pique knits and scuba material. I am not quite sure what I will be making with all of these knits yet, but I am looking for inspirations. Any suggestions?
On another note, I have already started sewing for fall :( I used a self-drafted pattern to create this mini dress, made out of black and whites suiting material. The dress is fully lined with a purple satin and added a decorative lace trim. I will put together a full write up once I actually wear it. (I also sewed this and several other belts, but you'll have to wait for the next post for that!)
I also sewed my "Little Black Dress" from stretch knit and using #McCalls6988. This was originally going to be a test dress for me, but I was so happy with how it turned out that I decided to put it in the rotation. I am going to make this dress again in a bright pink or teal and will write a full review. BUT I will say, this pattern was great, quick and easy to sew.
