I spent my day off shopping for patterns and fabric for my spring wardrobe.
And I found some amazing fabrics and patterns.
I’m really anxious to see how it will all turn out. And I absolutely cannot wait to accessorize and turn these dresses into full ‘looks’!
I started out at Jo-Ann’s and took advantage of their $0.99 McCalls pattern sale. I found four dress patterns that I loved but it took me a looooong time to find fabric that would work.
The first I found was this:
Right off the bat I LOVED the peekaboo back. But I just couldn’t find a fabric that I would work. I found this fun semi floral print that’s silky and light and will be perfect for summer.
Then I was sad to find that there wasn’t a single other fabric that I liked at the store.
So I stopped for lunch and then headed to Hancock’s.
Right off the bat I found a print that was AH-MAZ-ING. But it was $15/yd… bummer.
I looked around a bit more and found this gem on the value shelf. Only $5/yd!
It was kismet. I loved the print, loved the feel of the fabric and it looks like it’s going to be perfect for the flow-y maxi dress.
I was wandering around and couldn’t find anything else that would work with the patterns I’d purchased. And then I saw the cutest, springy-est plaid that would work GREAT with the shirt dress pattern I had! Woo hoo!
After all of that I was still really upset about the first pattern/fabric I’d seen in Hancock’s that was just too expensive.
Then I remembered that I had a 40% off coupon and I was sooooo freaking excited, because it’s still a little pricey but I can make that work!
I can’t wait to get started. And definitely can’t wait to see the finished results!
