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.
