Firstly, I would like to thank you all for the lovely comments that were made about the garments that I made in 2013 - I really do appreciate them all. Most kind!
Yesterday was New Years' Day, and I received an (automated) call from the large fabric chain in Canada (Fabricland). They were having a huge sale - 50% off pretty much everything - so off I went! I managed to pick up some more Ponte for another cardigan or two, as well as the same fabric that I made the skirt below out of:
It is a poly/rayon woven fabric, quite heavy but with great drape. I am going to make a pair of trousers out of this fabric, as well as another pair out of the herringbone fabric (from my 'collection') that I made this skirt and Sorbetto out of:
I am thinking of lining both of these trousers down to about the knees - maybe longer, as I love the feel of rayon lining (and it was only $2.50/m in the sale!) against my skin.
So that is my starter for the New Year. I am not back to work until Monday, so I will hopefully have these done by then, and I will have something new to wear.
What about you - what are your first garments of 2014, and did you pick up anything in the sales this season?
