SEW * CRAFT * DESIGN * INSPIRE * LEARN
I'm just about sure that all of us have made a resolution to cut back on fabric purchases this year. My latest fabric shopping misadventure has caused me to really re-evaluate my fabric shopping habit. I became so excited at the extremely low prices that I just lost my $@#$%^^ mind. However, I promised to post some photos of this. I attempted to do this earlier this week but had a difficult time getting the photos to post. So here I go again!
This is what the entire purchase looked like. Each piece is 60" x 3yds. Oink, oink lol.
This Calvin Klein piece is my favorite one of all. It is so fine, I can't wait to make something for the summer. I would call it a very fine piece of handkerchief weight linen.
I wasn't sure what pongee was but at $1p/yd how bad could it be. Turned out to be nice enough for lightweight tops or dresses and utilitarian enough to use as lining. So far so good.
The colors of the cuts on the third row in the first photo are very close to the pongee however, these knits are the kind used for active wear like yoga pants, and other exercise gear. Think I'll make a few items for me and my Zumba friends......yea!
The prints are very nice weights for tops, dresses etc. These are on the first row of the first pic.
