The last estate sale I went to had fabric at $1.00 per bag (as much as you could put in a plastic grocery bag). I figured I would just skip it since I can buy fabric much easier and know what I am getting.
Friday is an estate auction with fabric. Let's see if I can get my butt out to that--it is at night and I am a real party pooper these days.
The Sewing Machine Ate it. . .
Yep that was the bodice to the red slinky knit dress I am referring to. The sewing machine stuffed it into the bobbin area and made a black spot with a hole. Just as well, this was started to feel a lot like working on college math. So now we are on the way to a red slinky knit SKIRT!
I hate slinky knit.
This fabric was originally going to be McCall's 5241 a 1 Hour Cardigan but after reading pattern reviews I decided against it. Hmmm. . . .
Some Success in sewing
Simplicity Easy to Sew 3506. True, it was easy, so easy I went back and did it again. I think a lot of the success has to do with the fabric. I knew the blue knit would work because I saw it on another lady's blog. Thank you, whoever you are! Also, like this person, I skipped the zipper since it is not needed with the knit fabrics.
The top is made from some stash fabric from ages ago. Not very pretty, but I had it so why not make something with it. The white you can see are tiny butterflies.
