Anyway, as you saw in my last post one of my new years resolutions was to sew more. I started really thinking about why I don't, I have fab material, I have the ability, ok I don't always have the time but who does? Yet still I haven't. I hope I've figured it out, my new sewing area which I started to set up in Summer was a disaster, so today I set about starting to get it organised.
First up though, some fabric I've bought in the last 6 months, all at bargain basement prices and I mean bargain basement prices!!
This first one is my favourite as not only is it fabulous & cheap but there is LOADs of it, so lots of options, I will definately make a dress out of it, but what style yet I'm still to decide. The gold is so vibrant in real life, can't believe it's survived so well, it's obviously been stored away, it's definately original and not repro, you can just feel and tell.
I have a real love of mexican prints, I do have several that I've already made and fabric too, this one is lovely as it's an unusual light green colour and a great print, plus it's a silk type fabric.
This next one is unusual, it's a beautiful print and again there is lots of it, but it's very see through, so it will make a beautiful light summer dress but it will need something underneath otherwise I'll be arrested!!
I still have a way to go but it's a hell of an improvement. As you can see I've got all my material piled up, then the boxes at the bottom contain clothes that are trashed but I want to make patterns from, small pieces of material and a couple of half completed pairs of trousers, bad huh?
I want to put a couple of shelves up above the table and a pin board with ideas etc as well.
I'll take more pictures as I develop the space and tomorrow I'm going to finish my Kindle cover and maybe something else cos I actually want to be in there now!!
