Additions to my stash...
I've just been on a fabric shopping spree last week with the rare chance of "stretch" materials being on sale and a discount voucher from Spotlight. In total, I got 9.5 meters of mostly stretch fabrics.
These are cotton interlock fabrics. The red one is just half a meter while all the rest is on one meter each. I have chosen mostly plain block colors simply because I am planning to mix and match a couple of them in just one garment.
Stripe jersey fabric in two different tones of blue and one in pink.
This is a purl knit fabric in chambray. Soon, this fabric would be a comfy cardigan.
... And last but not the least, the only non-stretch fabric among them. A matte satin in floral print on a natural background. I plan to do a simple top for this as I don't have that much fabric to work on something complicated.
I have already started using the floral printed and the chocolate cotton interlock for a Danielle-inspired top. It's almost finished (I only have to put the elastic casing and the elastic on the empire waist and finishing the neckline), but I think I would be unpicking the sleeves because they look odd.
Have to wait for the weekends before I get down to work again...
