First is what may be Easter 2010. It is a plaid from Hancock Fabrics. I've had it for a few months (gotta love the value fabrics and a coupon). I want to make a long jacket with it, but I'm about 3/8 yd short. The satin is for a sheath dress to complete the outfit. Got that from Vogue Fabric Store on Friday for $2.99/yd. I really wanted a crepe for the dress, but when I found the crepe back satin at Vogue, it was $11/yd. (I'm sorry. The economy and my skill level do not warrant me paying more than $6.00/yd for fabric.) I was worried about such a formal fabric for Sunday service, but my mind was put at ease when I noticed someone wearing a beautiful boucle with crystals in it last Sunday.
