Boy was I happy!! All of the clearance fabric was an additional 50% off. I got about 18 yards for $1.00 to $2.00. I have been fantasizing about working at a library and being able to wear Classic Lolita dresses and outfits. All of the different fabric I bought went along with a specific idea and design. I also pictured wearing it in the library among the books.
I bought about 6 yards of this pink floral print. It is so antique and delicate looking I could not help but buy lots of it. I have big plans for this fabric! I am making a One Piece Dress with a round neckline. If I have any left over I am making a cute eco-sack. Perhaps even a large head bow.
These two fabrics are going to be accent fabrics. The red and white polka-dot chiffon will make gorgeous flowy ruffles. I bought quite a bit of it so I think I can use it to make 2 pieces, a skirt and a jsk. The light pink fabric is a pretty sheer cotton so I think it be a cutsew and maybe a bolero if I feel like making super cute sleeves. The last things I bought were a few pearl trims and I love love love them. I have oodles of ideas for them.
I know the trim on the right is meant to have the sheer part hidden but I want to utilize it and show all of it. I have an idea for a slightly pirate themed jsk and using the trim on the right as the straps and on the bodice.
I have to tidy up my sewing room and then will start sewing this upcoming week. Perhaps in the future I will do a post on my sewing room. I am lucky enough that we have an apartment with two bedrooms.
