Last fall, I ordered 3 yards or so of a turquoise knit for $1 per yard. Yes, I love clearance fabrics. I feel as if it's not much of a loss if I don't love them when I get my hands on them and feel them and see the colors for real. Well, that piece of fabric showed up, along with a second piece of about the same size, and a note saying that the pieces were soiled. And then it got too chilly to consider using lightweight fabric, so into the fabric collection it went.
Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago, when I really wanted to try out one of my new patterns from the Vogue sale, and wanted to use that nice turquoise color. So, into the washer with double detergent (twice), and, lo and behold, no soiling! Hooray!
So here's the first V8764, in that turquoise fabric. I made one with short sleeves from a non-stretchy tan fabric I got when I was in Philly with GMarie, but haven't worn it yet, so don't have any pictures.
Happy weekending, everyone, and if you want the book from yesterday's post, don't forget to tell me!
