I was excited to get to my new fabrics from the PR weekend. Not that I'm short on fabrics but the newest stuff always gets my attention. First I attacked the $1/yard fabric from the FIDM Scholarship store. These were my first purchases. I wish we had been able to go back there because the fabrics were interesting and quality for no money.
The red/khaki/cream circle fabric is a 4 way stretch probably poly with lycra. I had only 2 yards but it was 62 inches wide so I was able to squeeze out the Sandra Betzina skirt Vogue 2933 with one side panel and a crossover top from Simplicity 4095. I had to cut the sleeves sideways to fit them on my small yardage and I couldn't do any print placement. As a result the circles are not attractively placed on my bosum. Too bad cause otherwise I really like this top. I like the skirt too but not together so much.
The red fabric became New Look 6929, a longer faux wrap with crisscross bands and a wrap around sash. I think if I make this again I will go shorter as this longer tunic length isn't the best for me.
