Since my budget is very tight, I can't afford to buy clothes right now. I like having something (or lots of somethings, lol) new every season. It's just fun! I'm sure you agree, and do the same. Anyway, I was contemplating some new shirts, and was looking through some fabrics that I bought a few years ago (when the budget was happier!lol).
I discovered this pretty piece of 35" wide cotton, with an interesting weave, and pink flowers. I pulled my favorite camp shirt pattern, and searched for buttons, and some Aurifil thread to match. Now I have a fun new shirt to wear with jeans or white capris. It's comfy, pretty, and airy. Perfect for a hot Summer day. I even have pink sandals that would look cute with it!
I even played with a fun little flower stitch for the topstiching on the collar and yoke edges. I love my Sony Cybershot camera! Look at that detail!The flower is about the size of a quarter.
Does anyone remember what this weave is called? It's vintage, 35" wide 100% cotton. Is it Dobby? It almost feels like seersucker on the front, but it doesn't have the usual puckers. The texture is just from this design in the weave. I did pre-wash this, but do that anyway when making clothes.
