Some of you might remember my other sewing projects, Vintage patterns I will try this autumn, still to this day I haven’t found a perfect fabric for these patterns.
I want to say I’m rather picky when it comes to fabric and clothes. I know that if I don’t think it will be perfect fabric for that pattern I won’t wear it.
But I guess that’s also what makes me rather limited.
So I went with my mom to one of my favorite fabric stores in Sweden. Sadly it can only be found 5 hours away from where I live. Luckily that’s where my mom and dad lives.
Like I said, I didn’t find a fabric for the patterns in the other blog post I have; Vintage patterns I will try this autumn.
But I found this wonderful autumn fabric in orange, brown, green that would make a lovely flared circle skirt. When I asked the owner for the price on this fabric she couldn’t find it in the database and gave me a much lower price than it should have been.
With this said; I hugged it and took 3 meters right away. What a bargain.
When I was home I also went through my moms sewing cabinet and put my hands on some new patterns.
One of these I’m going to use for the skirt. The other two patterns I feel have a more summer and maybe spring feeling to it.
Why I wanted these patterns was because I remember clearly when my mom sewed these dresses for herself and I forced her to make a mini version for me. We where twins in those dresses!
What I know my mom still have saved my dresses. Hopefully I will get a daughter myself in the future that would love to wear them.
Tomorrow I have invited my dear friend Maria to have a sewing day with me. I’m going to make this skirt, while she is doing some kind of embroidery. Our third sewing geek,Clara I think is out of town at this moment.
I will come with a new part when the skirt is done.
Wish me luck.
