My haul piled up on a bar stool
|6 m of poly/rayon/cotton blend suiting|
|6 m of rayon/poly blend suiting|
|6 m rayon blend brushed suiting - soooo soft!!!|
|3 m rayon knit with sparkles (I'm a sucker for anything that sparkles!!)|
|3.5 m of rayon blend coating|
|6 m of a rayon poly blend heavyweight knit|
|4 m of a loose woven fabric of undetermined fibres|
|5 m of a rayon/poly tweed|
|6 m of menswear suiting, poly blend|
This menswear inspired suiting has a lightweight but stiffer hand. I love the subtle plaid. So much so that I've already made a pair of trousers out of it (more on that next time). It was easy to work with, even matching the even plaid. I have enough left for a skirt and jacket. I'm thinking something cute and feminine for the jacket to balance out the "harshness" of the menswear.
|3 m of plaid flannelette|
|My fabulous haul|
Can you believe that all this, plus four Burda patterns, an assortment of zippers and thread, cost less than $200!! I KNOW!!! That's where the PURPOSE part of this purchase fits in. The way I see it, I can build my daughters' work wardrobes as well, inexpensively.
Don't ya just LOVE being able to sew??!
