It's the summer of shirring! There was Meg's green dress, a strapless lady's top that Lucy found at Value Village and made into a dress, the blue dress for me, and a dress for Lucy. I had been eyeing the pre-shirred fabric at Fabricland, but didn't want to pay $20/m. It eventually got marked down to $10/m, but until I made Meg's dress (and then mine), I didn't know how much I would need. All I knew was that just buying my bust size as the length would not be enough. One day I had taken the girls to Fabricland and there was a cut of smocked fabric in the clearance bin...however, they don't actually mark down the remnants; it's still $10/m, even though it's a pre-cut piece. Lucy liked one piece and agreed to a dress. I think it was .8m.
On another trip to Value Village, I found a piece of pretty, floral knit. The white background has a very slight texture/thick-thin affect. It's quite thin and stretchy. However, the piece was rather odd...there had been a section (poorly) serged onto one end, and there were some holes scattered here and there.
