So, the last two posts that I put up today are projects that I did quite a while ago. Since then, I've been much more serious about picking my sewing projects. And, I'm very excited to say that I've developed a major vintage fabric addiction. Using fabrics from the era makes sewing so much more fun! I just love the late 60's and early 70's fabric. Bright colors. Geometric and abstract patterns. Op art and fun prints reminiscent of Peter Max.
I cannot get enough of them! Anyway, I plan to post more non-project entries discussing vintage fabric, patterns, and 60's fashion in general. I recently acquired some reference books, which I hope will be good for visual aids.
Anyway, here's a picture of a double knit I just bought. I have 3.5 yards, and I'm not sure what to do with yet. I'm a tad worried that if I made a dress, the print would be overwhelming on my frame (I'm 5'4"). However, part of me wants to take the risk. I do know that it would make a good skirt for sure. Anyway, any thoughts?
