Okay, so it's not a secret that I'm not a fan of our only local fabric shop. It's got a crappy, overpriced fabric selection, especially considering that most of the bolts don't even have fibre content on it. But now that our local yarn shop has closed (WAAAAAAAAHHHH D:), I'm determined to at least appreciated the fabric shop more, dammit.
I challenged myself to not only buy the fabric I need to make a wearable muslin for Colette's Laurel, but to also use some sort of trim from their admittedly large and pretty selection. I tend to just oogle them and move on.
Anywho, that's my tentative plan for the weekend. And don't think I've forgotten about my pants! I've been thinking of nothing less for the last two weeks. But this pattern has sort of shanghied my imagination and won't let go, and I want to try out the top first before diving into the dress I plan to make down the road. :)
