This recently Nikki and I took a trip to Fabric Land in Bournemouth to get some fabric for the Latin dresses, well that didn’t happen but I did come back with a big bag of new fabrics for me and here are some ideas of what I plan to sew with them (confession: some of these might already have been sewn up)
Some lovely Aztec print thick sweater material, it is kind of like sweatshirting but has a softer front than I would have expected from a sweatshirt. I plan to make a long Oslo Sweater from this lovely fabric
I’m thinking of making another Butterick B5997 from this lovely bright turquoise viscose fabric. I think the top needs some kind of closure at the top of the neck opening, a button and loop or a permanent ‘strap’.
I have plans for this cotton Bengaline to become a pair of shorts. Possibly trying the fit of my first pair of bottoms from Burda Style magazine.
I think this chambray would work well for something like the Cheyenne Tunic. I’m thinking about modifying Butterick B5997 to have a partial placket and take out the gathers (and add a FBA).
