Brown Is The New Black

I’ve managed to resist Gorgeous Fabric‘s sales for awhile now, but the other night I caved. I wound up purchasing 4 fabrics, although I originally had much more in my cart. I wound up taking some out when I realized that browns are my new black After taking an ‘inventory’ of what I own, I discovered that much of my fallwinter wardrobe items are mostly black – since then, I’ve been trying to introduce more color into my sewing.

What did I pick up? An “art jersey” print that will undoubtedly become one of my Jalie top patterns, a burgundy houndstooth double knit, an animal print mesh that will become McCall 5713 (I have a RTW top with a very similar style and LOVE the way it looks on), and a solid brown jersey that coordinates with the mesh.
My fabric purchase also lead me to buy a pattern as well. When I first saw Hot Pattern’s Riviera Boulevard Cardigan-Jacket I knew at some point I was going to wind up making it – now that I ordered a doubleknit, I had a reason to buy it!
Have you taken advantage of any Thanksgiving sales yet?

    Pretty fabrics! I’m trying to steer clear of deals, but I did snatch up some stuff with my gift certificate from SewBaby. I just got an email from HotPatterns too – now the patterns are BOGO, maybe I should go look (ack!).

    Lovely fabrics…they will look so nice on you. No sales for me….I’m working on my stash. If it doesn’t get sewed up soon, I’m giving it away because I’m tired of the stuff I bought for myself. Still having lots of fun with the fabrics I’ve purchased for my new grandson who is now due in a few weeks.
    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
