Somehow I found myself in the vicinity of Darn Cheap fabrics yesterday. I somehow had enough time to pop in and have a look at the $2 per metre table. Somehow, there was fabric there to interest me. I picked up loads of this cotton border print to make the new Oliver + s croquet dress for the girls.
I’m not in a hurry to get it made though – it’s a summer dress, and we’re definitely heading towards winter! Also at Darn Cheap – but not on the $2 per metre table – were some terrific textured knits. I bought a few metres of this double-sided one:
and the reverse:
thinking of it becoming Vogue 1210.
But now I have decisions to make! Which side to be the main fabric, and which side to be the contrast sleeve inset and neckband/ties? Or should I use another pattern entirely like McCalls 6395 or Butterick 5676 or Butterick 5522 (all of which are in my stash)? How will I decide? What do you think?
