Red Denim fabric

The red denim fabric arrived.  It is a nice red but not the red I thought it was going to be.  The denim quality is good and I am going to use it for the inspiration jacket as planned.  I had hoped it was more of warm red and it is a good basic red with not too much of cool undertone. 

Before I start on it, I will be washing it a couple of times.  Meanwhile I am going to start on a McCall's dress pattern , the black and floral version.  This is the fabric and lining I will be using.
The fabric is from EOS and the lining has been in the stash, it a green color matching the green in the floral print.  I have cut around the pattern pieces so I can start the pin fitting for pattern adjustments.  The dress bodice has separate pieces for A, B, C and D cups so hopefully no FBA necessary.

Updates to follow.

  1. Isn't it disappointing when something is not quite what you had in mind, pattern or fabric.

    1. It is. I am not as disappointed as I could have been though as it is a pretty red; some may consider it a true red.

    1. Thanks Judy. With many of us buying from the internet these days you are either pleasantly surprised or totally disappointed. It will work out.

  3. While the internet is a great source for fabric but I usually end up expecting one thing and getting another. Guess we have to take the good with the bad.

    1. You are correct. I have been very disappointed with some purchases and others I have been pleasantly surprised.
