My bff and I went fabric shopping today! (And to Wendy's! Best day evaaaaaah! lol ;)
There's this place about 10 minutes from us called Osgood's. It's a massive, massive fabric store. It's like a single-story Mood. AMAZING. If you are ever in New England, I highly recommend paying Osgood's a visit... you will not be disappointed:
I have been on a sewing-for-Emmy kick for so long now, I think it's time for some selfish sewing, eh?! Methinks yes! Last week when Tasia had a birthday sale on her patterns, I picked up the Renfrew Top and the Minoru Jacket. I LOVE that jacket so much, and everyone's versions so far have been fabulous! Definitely Google it if you haven't seen them!
I know I want to make the jacket in a brightish color, something good for Spring and Fall, so at Osgood's I got this tangerine-y/tomato-y canvas fabric. MAD love for this color!
And then just now when I was on Sewaholic.net to get these pattern images, I realized I am not the first one to make the jacket in this color:
Oh right! It's the same color as Tasia's example! Perfect then - I know it'll look great! Ha! :D
And then I got this pretty dark blue floral poly-something to make the Pendrell Blouse that I've had cut out for like a year:
Pretty, yes? I think I traced off view B, but I don't remember (and I don't feel like getting up to check because I just ate Wendy's.) I love it. Can't wait to make this one either!
