This weekend was productive. I had the opportunity to transform two difficult to work with fabrics into two fun garments. Since this is for an article, I can only give you a sneak peak, but I can tell you that both fabrics were from Joann’s April Johnston collection. The first is a ‘mesh ribbon’ rosette material that was fabulous to work with, my only complaint? The color. It’s a beige, although the label claims it’s ‘rose’. Too bad it has so my polyester in it, otherwise I’d attempt to dye it another color. The second fabric is a ‘fishbone’ fringe. I opted to cut this fabric the opposite way than it was intended (the fringe should be going vertical) which I think looks more pleasing, but the fabric droops some giving it an interesting effect…. I like to think that it makes my finished garment almost avant garde (actually, I’m anxious to see how this one photographs I think it should look really interesting).
How did everyone else spend their weekend?
