Every now and then I put myself on sewing purchase punishment. This means that I can’t buy any new fabric or patterns until I actually sewed something. But because of general malaise and procrastination nothing gets made. Now not buying fabric has proven relatively easy. Because of my very limited budget, sometimes it is a choice between that cute dark-wash denim or groceries. But what I haven’t been able to resist are 99 cent pattern sales. First I justified it by saying that because I had gained some weight I had to buy larger sizes (which is true). So now I have the patterns in the correct sizes and still no sewing. I went back on punishment….until I had to go to Hancock’s for elastic. Fortunately the Hancock Fabrics on Piedmont Road in Atlanta, GA (yes, I called them out. I hate them that much, but there aren’t any other fabric stores close to me) almost never has any fabric worth buying so I knew I could get in and out. And I did, with elastic, thread, buttons and…
Confession: I ordered rainwear fabric for this from Denver Fabrics cause they are having a blowout sale and I will have a trenchcoat for less than $20.
I already have some brown tweed knit fabric for this. I would scan a swatch for you but there is too much stuff on top of the scanner and I don’t feel like moving it.
Damn those 99cent sales! Gotta go now. I am back on punishment.
