This is a rayon knit that was purchased at Hancock Fabrics at half price. I bought so much of it and later found out that not only does it have to be handwashed but, you have to line dry it as well. I guess that is what I get for buying while excited.
The pattern come from burdamode.com in their download section. It was a free tunic/dress pattern that has become one of may favorites so much so that I hang it on a hanger for repeated use. I have tried and tried to copy and paste a pic of the pattern for anyone interested and somehow it must be restricted because it will not paste.
You can make this pattern from not only a knit, but challis, linen, georgette, or just about anything that has some drape and flow to it. I made the largest size that it had just to be on the safe side and that seemed to work for me .
Would I continue to make this pattern? You know it. Once you have downloaded the pattern, printed it, and put the pieces together, the possibilities are endless. What you save by the pattern being free, i guess you would say you make up with the expense of buying ink. By the way, is anyone else a fan of putting pattern pieces together that you have printed from the internet.
On another note here is a pic of my new sewing room before I set it up. (Linda I am still working on those curtains.I know - I should be ashamed of myself).
I wished I could have gotten a better pic of the room before but I could not even step in the room because of all the stuff - I mean fabric. So this pic is basically from the entrance to the room. Here is a pic of it afterwards.
Also, when reading other blogs, I sometime get the feeling that some of you may not have big fabric stashes. Could it be true? Do you just buy enough to make you current project and then from there or do you buy when you see something like? Could your stash possibly look like this?
So, I am trying not to buy anymore fabric, but how can you resist a good sale. Anyway write me back and tell me about your stash.
