Yeah...Well...The New Year Doesn't Start Until Monday...

OK, I couldn't resist- I mean, come on, it's Textile Studio. I am absolutely, 100%, completely unable to resist a Textile Studio sale. Besides, I didn't buy that much (at least compared to how much fabric there is in the world...). So, without further ado, here's the damage:

Reversible Flower Herringbone - This will become Simplicity 6412. The dress and the cuffs and collar on the coat will be made of the flowered side and the body of the coat will be the plain herringbone side (see view 2). I can't wait to get my hands on this fabric!

Bittersweet & Olive Daimond Jacquard and Bittersweet Zigzag Texture - these two fabrics are destined to be Butterick 4060. The jacquard fabric will become the short jacket and the solid fabric will become the sheath dress.

Silk Dot Velvet, Lined Flower Sheer and Milk Chocolate Lace - I haven't chosen patterns yet, however, I evision the velvet and lace combined in a coat and the flower print as a dress to go under the coat.

Rust Flower Print Onionskin, Burnt Orange Textured Silk and NaturalTextured Weave Silk - The onion skin will become a simple top- I'm thinking Vogue 2925 (viewB). The orange silk is going to be a TS Mandarin Jacket and the natural silk will be the jacket from Simplicity 7305 (another vintage pattern).

Dot & Square Burnout Velvet - This fabric has McCall's 5336 written all over it (the open front, dolman sleeve version in red on the pattern cover). If you want this pattern, it's for sale by one of my favourite eBayers- just click the link above.

Fire & Ice Burnout Velvet and Gold Leaf Lace - I'm unsure of what these two fabrics will become, I just know that they spoke to me. Unfortunately, at this point all they're willing to say is "Buy me", but no word on what they want to become yet. Sometimes, the tight-lipped ones turn out to be the most interesting guests.

Okay, we bought the same fabric - the stenciled herringbone - and had the same idea for it's use...a jacket and dress...Great minds definitely think alike!
