I won’t bore you with details of my work life. Just know if I’m gone for a minute or two, work has infringed on my sewing time. However, I did manage to squeeze out a skirt. I also managed to purchase some fabric, notions and books. But I’ll talk more about that later.
Well in my last post, the plan was to show the fabrics that I purchased in New York. Since that seem like ages ago, I decided I will show them as I sew them.
Now, I love shirt dresses especially in a knit. So when I saw McMcalls M6520, I was excited. I’ve been looking for a print that would take me into the fall and I found just the print. I was in my local JoAnn’s stocking up on some notions (50%) and came across this rayon jersey print. This was perfect. A little lightweight, but my thought was underline it.
So my quest for underlining begin. I looked at tricot and swimwear lining and I didn’t like the feel and weight of either. I happened to be bumming around on emmasone sock and saw a category for stretch linings. Boom!! There it was, jersey lining. A 4-way stretch jersey micro knit with a silky hand. I immediately ordered my introductory 3yds in cream. It was as the British would say ” spot on “. I’m planning to stock up in the basic colors.
Until next time………keep sewing!!!!
