Happy #FabricFriday friends! Gosh, it feels like an awful long time since I last wrote that, but boy do I have a corker to share with you today!
I pounced lightning fast on this electric-blue beauty when I saw her in a local vintage shop. At first I was drawn to the unusual floral print and stunning colour, which is so incredibly vibrant considering it's likely to be from the 1950s, but then I touched it and fell even deeper in love. This is no ordinary electric-blue beauty...she's a luxurious wool crepe and she knows it! You can see her in action over on Instagram, where I tried to capture the sensuous way she drapes.
Needless to say, I'm head over heels. But I'm also terrified of the prospect of cutting into her. Like, truly terrified! I think I'm going to hang on to her until I find the perfect pattern and until I feel my sewing skills are worthy of her.
In the meantime it's fun to daydream, so tell me, what would you make with this exquisite fabric?
