Lola Pink, Please

I had an appointment in Lafayette, so I visited one of my favorite fabric stores.  No, I do not need fabric!  But, well heck, Richard called me on the road and suggested that I go by "one of those quilt places" and get something.  He also suggested that I get a pedicure.

I ran in for a few minutes and found only three pieces to purchase. Are they just lucious?  I passed on the pedicure because I spent enough money on these fabrics and one pattern.  (And I need to shave my legs.  Can I hear an lol?)

So the plan for these pretties is to make a couple of skirts and maybe even a cute top.  

This last piece is beautiful but also very loud...screaming loud!  It may have to be a skirt just because I could not wear it as a top: I'm a tad too heavy for such big print in such loud orange.  I don't want to look like I'm wearing a mu-mu. 

The pattern I purchased for the top is an Amy Butler tunic that can also be made into a mini dress, dress or cami.  The salesgirl at Lola Pink had a calm version of this tunic on and it looked fabulous.  She's way smaller, but I'm thinking the comfort is worth something. 

I don't like sleeveless tops but it's so hot in my classroom since the air conditioner is not working correctly.  I have some polka dot fabric that I intended to make into a top last year.  I guess it's time to put it to good use and try out this pattern.  I'll keep you posted.

Happy sewing,
