At least it has for me. Saturday was so nice, sunny and warm that I just had to go fabric shopping. I went off with the thoughts of getting some cheap black cotton for a muslin of a 1918 dress. Well, as you can see, black I did not get. All ideas of black went promptly right out the window once I started looking at fabrics. Instead, all sorts of wonderfully springy type fabrics. 2 colours of swiss dot..white and turquoise.
Also a mint swiss dot with a pattern which may be for a 1930’s dress. The green is a heavy stretch silk. The second turquoise is an eyelet:
I don’t know if it was because of the sun or my mood but I kept choosing spring fabrics. So unlike me.
All this fabric for the low price of ….wait for it…..all in all 29 yards of fabric….for….$28. Yooowza. I truly lucked out this time. Oh yes!! Now I just need to actually do some sewing.
