Well, I didn't finish work early last Friday, but I did make it to the Edinburgh Fabrics store on Saturday morning. The store was stocked with the most amazing collection of sari fabrics! The colors and patterns were amazing, but expensive and (for me) impractical enough that I wasn't overwhelmed by temptation. ;)
I did find this cute, gauzy print that insisted that it belonged in my closet. (Or, at least, in my stash!)
I think it will be perfect for this top pattern:
I've already made this once (here), but I used a straight cotton print and decided that it really needed a lighter weight, more flowy, gauzy fabric. Also, I messed up on the neckline, so I'm looking forward to a second chance at doing it right.
It seems like forever since I've had a chance to sew, but don't worry, I'll get to it. It's in the queue... :)
P.S. - Remember, today is your LAST chance to sign up for my 3rd year blog birthday give-away here. I'm giving away gift certificates to Patterns from the Past, so if you enjoy vintage patterns, you definitely want to sign up! Odds are still pretty good... ;)
I'll be announcing the THREE (randomly drawn) winners tomorrow. Good luck to everyone!
