I was chatting to Jed the other day about patterns.
He asked me what I was sewing next.
I rattled off what I was sewing,what I had waiting,what I was cutting and what was next.
I explained that I was nervous about the next pattern as Matilda chose the fabric and it was a bit 'out there'.
'It's not a fabric choice I would make for an O+S pattern'
'It's the wrong look,it may just suit a CC pattern,it would definitely work with a Figgy's'
'Who decides that'?
'I guess I do'
It really got me thinking.
On our recent holiday I came across an incredible fabric sale,and took advantage,purchasing several 1 m lengths of some quite different prints. I figured at 80c a metre it was not a huge waste of money if they ended up in the poor box.
So I have set myself a challenge.
To make 3 outfits from 3 pattern companies in a completely different fabric choice then that I would normally make.
It could be disastrous.
It could be enlightening.
Either way it will be good for a giggle!
Wish me luck?
