Given my affinity for shopping, I knew there were a LOT of fabric choices out there, but when you actually start looking and really need to narrow it down to make something yourself…well, let’s just say it’s not that easy. Wow! Rayon, polyester, spandex, fleece, french terry…the list goes on and on. And the colors…celedon, lipstick, harbor blue, bittersweet. I also have an affinity for lipstick, but what fabric color is that??
Here is just a small sample of what I’m dealing with:
Don’t get me wrong. I love options, but with so many beautiful colors and textures out there, it is going to be harder than I thought.
What colors do you like to wear? Everyone has their favorites. I know I do! (Please share yours via the “Comment” link to the left.) In the Fall/Winter, I gravitate to the “jewel tones”. In the Spring/Summer, I like bright pops of color like purple or fuchsia paired with white jeans, etc. And of course, I always like black for it’s “slimming” effect!
I’ve still got more samples coming and am attending a fabric wholesale show in August. I CANNOT WAIT! I may come out more confused than ever, but more than anything, I think I’ll feel like a kid in a candy store. I will keep you posted on what I find!
Thanks for reading…again!
