Shopping Squee!

I promised myself I would go to Fabricland today, to take advantage of the Jubilee Bank Holiday discount. The haul was relatively modest, and included a load of useful elastic, which is handy to have, ummm, to hand.

The fabric haul included more pink lycra, for making the baladi dress for one of my students, and for making the mermaid skirt to match the Pink Confetti bedlah. It's not a *perfect* match, their dye lots seem to vary quite significantly! But it's very close, and will certainly do. You'd have to be looking pretty hard to spot that the fabrics are different.

I also got the crazy swirly-whirly silver hologram turquoise lycra. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, but there's enough for a bedlah or baladi dress, so I'm ready for anything. I do love me the hologram silver. The hologram gold always looks "too much", for my eyes, but holo silver is FAB!

I bought some stripy chilli red t-shirting to make another easy peasy circle skirt. (I think I'll stop after that one!) and some lacy denim printed t-shirting, to make some sort of summer dress. I say "summer dress" as though there's any chance I'd get to wear one...

stash addition

The current plan is to work on the Skirt Sets to go with the Pink Confetti, and the student baladi dress. I've agreed to decorate it for her, and I've got a shedload of beads left over from the Confetti, so don't need to worry unduly about supplies!
