At the end of April, I went fabric shopping in the LA garment district while attending PatternReview Weekend. Here is some of the fabric I bought:
Here are 2 of the 3 tops made from this group so far this month:
And here are 2 tops from stash fabrics:
This is the only one that’s a new pattern, Butterick 6026 by Katherine Tilton. Love this pattern. Made a straight 12, no mods but setting the bias on the armholes a little closer to the edge than called for as some reviewers on PR thought the armholes were big. It fits and flatters. I’m wearing it tomorrow with the white crops that are needing to be moved from the washer to the dryer, RIGHT NOW. But before I go…
Also made a hooded après swim robe for the 2 1/2 year-old in my life, DGS. He selected the fabric himself. Go Giants:
And while I was at all this sewing, I managed to make it through much of the Wool series of post-apocalyptic sci-fi novels by Hugh Howey. Admittedly they are short and quick reads. One of the better entries in that genre. Thanks to DS for recommending the series.
