These new crops could use a press, but I just pulled them out of the dryer after wearing them today and it’s late and I’m lazy, so there you are. You’ve seen this top before. Now there are crops to go with. Really, this is a test of a Burda pattern that I want to use for some nice solid twill in a deep khaki/taupe from the ever-diminishing stash. Okay, I confess I bought some t-shirt fabric when I went to buy the zipper(s) for these 2 pairs of crops, but that’s still an overall reduction and if I sew the t-shirt fabric right away, it won’t ever add to the stash. And it’s so rare to find a decent t-shirt knit at a local fabric store I buckled under the pressure.
The reason this post is titled Forbidden Fabric is that when I moved and sorted the stash, I had help and my help declared this fabric out of bounds and tossed it into the charity box. In fact, the last two projects I’ve sewn are of rescued fabric I was forbidden to sew/wear. Since the garden of Eden, forbidden things are the hardest to resist.
