Hello everyone 🙂 Yes, a fabric and trim haul – I went a little crazy and bought a lot of fabrics and other stuff in the last months. Well, at least for me it is a huge amount… I bought most of it to sew skirts or shirts, not historical projects, because I am tired of walking into stores and find nothing that suits the style I want or the fit I need. So I decided to buy some fabric and sew garments myself. There are also a few fabrics for historical projects though.
The first fabric I got is black elastic jersey. I bought one and a half meters of it and this is going to be a shirt with bell shaped sleeves.
The next fabric I bought is black too and it is Javanaise. Almost opaque and perfect for a blouse.
I also bought some cotton. I adore the colour, it’s gorgous! This is going to be a dress in the style of the sixties. I saw a really beautiful dress that unfortunately was too big on me and I want to recreate a similar one with this fabric. I have 2 and a half meters of it.
This navy velour (yes, the photo does not capture the colour…) is part of a skirt I planned on making. I’ll use it for the waistband and to create biastape. I bought half a meter of it. The fabric I’ll pair it with, follows.
This is the fabric I was just talking about. I adore the print, it’s absolutely stunning. I bought 1.5 meters of it and it will be a circle skirt (already working on it).
The next fabric (cotton) was meant to be a pleated skirt but I unfortunately only got half a meter instead of the whole one I ordered. So I have to see, what I’m going to do with that one. But I love the colours, I’m sure I can pair this with lots of other fabrics.
The next three fabrics will be turned into historical projects. The first one I initially bought to make a maxidress but it is too thick for my taste (especially for a summer dress). So it is probably going to be a Robe à l’anglaise along with some white cotton. I really adore the pattern. So beautiful. I bought 3 meters of this crêpe.
Of this gorgous green and brown toned flanell I bought 6 meters. It is so soft and I absolutely don’t regret splurging a bit on it. It’s the most expensive among the fabrics I bought. This is going to be an 1890s robe. Still working on the design… I want to pair it with navy velvet.
The last fabric I bought is this vanilla and silver brocade. It’s shiny and beautiful and I can’t wait to work with it. I want to pair it with forest green, wine red or navy velvet and sew something medieval. Have to think about this one again though. I bought 3 meters of it.
The trimms and laces I bought are shown on this last picture. They were all bought in sale and I don’t have much of each. But I’m sure, I can use them on undergarments or thinks like that.
So these are my plans and the fabrics and other things I bought. I’ll try to blog on a schedule from now on and upload a post every friday 🙂 I hope you liked this post and thanks a lot for reading 🤗
