Fabric Shopping Fail

I missed the sale, it ended last Sunday, damn, I couldn’t get any more cotton silk.

Ah well, I picked up some cotton batiste, more beige & white plaid cotton for my trench, a solid beige cotton for pants, fuscia cotton gauze for wearable muslins and a stretch mix to practice making undies with until their fall sale when I can afford the more expensive stretch cottons (currently $20.00 per meter!)

Cotton Fabric Purchases

I also did not pick up all the patterns I wanted due to budget constraints but I did pick up Simplicity 2365 (tunic) and Butterick 5464 (loose-fitting blouse with collar and sleeve variations). Am waiting for a Vogue sale before purchasing other patterns. I’m going to use a Versace inspired fabric as a muslin before cutting into my cotton silk. I don’t know if it’s going to be a wearable muslin as my physical chemistry doesn’t get along well with polyester. It may be rayon but I don’t know for sure.
