fabric love on

i recently ordered some fabric that was on for a steal and a half! like $2/yd kind of steal! can we say wearable muslin anyone? yesssss. that's right. i'm getting ready to start my selfish sewing binge soon (looking for patterns to try? check out our independent pattern designer roundup)!  in the meantime though i keep looking at the fabrics i have hoarded for selfish sewing and then looking at my patterns and i just can't decide which ones to go with what.

while looking at my pile of fabric i also realized that i must be on a floral binge.  these prints remind me fondly of my early 90's years. i love that floral long dresses and short dresses are around again. and $2/yd! you can't go wrong people! even with hefty shipping charges to canada - ouch! ouch! ouch! i also still have the stunningly soft double gauze and some liberty cotton (shown below) that i've been hoarding as well. it's going to be so hard to cut into that gauze - it really is soooo soft and truly a treat for me to have. i got them both on sale for a great price a month or so ago.

any suggestions? are you sewing any of the patterns above? what fabrics are you using? any online shops you recommend for "apparel fabrics"? i'm on the hunt for some lovely shirting for the hawthorn dress. it's the only one i don't have any fabric for yet.

fill me in ladies! i want to know what you're making! wishing you all a lovely, handmade, coffee & tea, friends and family filled kinda weekend. i'm taking my oldest to her first concert! we're going to see taylor swift! i'm so excited! but more on that next week <3
