New Fabric and New Project
As I posted previously, I will be retiring soon. I do not really need more fabric but I got a lovely email from Cali Fabrics offering a discount because I have been a frequent buyer of their fabrics. And because it was my birthday I decided to take advantage of the offer. They have some lovely knit fabrics that I have purchased and sewn. However this time I bought a lovely rayon challis fabric.
The other fabric I purchased was a Ralph Lauren green stretch poly woven. I am bound and determined to make a nice fitting pair of pants in 2018. I thought this would be a great fabric for this.
I didn't actually plan to purchase the fabrics to go together but when they arrived it really was a great match.
I decided on my next project. I thought first I would sew a topper but decided not to. Instead I am going to sew a jacket using a Simplicity pattern. The fabric I chose to use is one that I acquired from Fabric Mart in 2016.
Either side could be used. The photo above has been lightened to show that it's blue. Here you can see the reverse side, this is a midnight navy blue shade. It almost looks black.
This is the Simplicity jacket that I plan to make.
More later, thanks for stopping by!
