A couple of days ago I listed the projects I intended to do for my summer essentials sew along.
I tried to describe the fabrics I had in mind but thought a picture would show it far better than words.
So, here is the fabric choice. What do you think about it?
1. A-line dress
As mentioned in my last post, I got this fabric in Denmark. It’s a home-dec fabric, so a bit on the heavy side, but I loved the flowery and colorful pattern. It reminds me of 70s prints and a kind of print that I can only manage to find in Scandinavian countries.
Have you ever seen any similar fabric in a lighter weight in any shop? I would love to have some tips from you.
2. Two pairs of pants
One pair will be red cotton. I got this fabric ages ago from Ikea.
The other more dressy. I got this fantastic 100% wool fabric in Barcelona two weeks ago at this fabulous shop Ribes & Casals
The color seems to change if you look at the fabric in daylight or under fluorescent light. It ranges from light beige to brownish.
3. Short-sleeved shirt:
I got this light cotton fabric at giesse scampoli which is a franchise fabric and haberdashery shop in Italy
And finally project number 4 will be a shirt refashion. I have these three shirts to work on…and I can’t decide which one to use… Any suggestions?
All shirts fabrics are on the heavier side, so not very thin.
