I Was Bad (But Not Too Bad)

I haven’t purchased fabric just because I like it for a long time. I haven’t been sewing much the last couple of years, so I was able to curtail my fabric-buying habit. Now that I’ve been sewing a bit again, I’m starting to feel the pull of the fabric!

I have Dawn over at Two On, Two Off to thank for today’s fabric purchase.Yesterday she posted about a sale on ITY Jersey knits over at Fabric.com.  I decided to take a look…  I’ve been envisioning a semi-dressy summer knit dress lately.  One that I can wear out to dinner or to my June girls weekend in Vegas.  My vision included a print fabric.  Well, these fabrics are exactly what I was envisioning!

To make this story worse…  The fabrics were on sale until Midnight Eastern time last night.  I missed the sale price by a few minutes (thanks to a little girl who had trouble falling asleep).  I decided not to buy any fabric.  Well, I couldn’t get this fabric out of my head, so today I went ahead with my purchase.  To my credit, there was a third piece of fabric in my shopping cart that I decided not to get.

So, what did I get?

This print will (hopefully) be used to make the dress I have been envisioning.  One pattern I am considering is McCall’s 6032, view A, with the cap sleeves and front loop.

I bought a yard of this fabric to make a dressy summer top to wear with black pants, something I’ve been missing in my wardrobe.  Perhaps the sleeveless top from Simplicity 2603?

Bad or not, it felt good to buy some fabric!
