I received 2 packages over the weekend. One was an order from The Fabric Fairy of 3 yards of french terry. The other was from fabric.com and included 3 different colors of cotton gauze, a star print poplin, and 2 patterns from Oliver + S (Sailboat and 2+2). I'm planning on making a beach cover up for myself from the gauze. There's a new free downloadable pattern on fabric.com's website that I'm going to try. I also did some in-store fabric shopping. K needs a dress for her 5th grade graduation in 2 weeks and she picked an Ottobre Design dress pattern.
It's #35 from the 03/09 issue. I loved the dress when we first received the magazine but K hated it so it was much to my surprise that she chose that particular dress. I guess her tastes have changed over the last year. She wants it to be blue so I chose a blue linen from Hancock's. I won't be sewing this one...my mom will. She also has an outfit for M in the works that involves smocking. I can't wait to see the finished clothing!
