I joined up for Pretty Grievances Safari Swap. I was matched up with cinnaspice from Sew On and Sew On and Sew On. I sent her 3m of a fabric that I would have loved to use so I hope she likes it. I won’t say much else since I don’t know if she recieved it yet…
But I did get the package from her!
First up, a lovely floral with subtle leopard spots throughout. Definitely a fabric that takes you on vacation as you look at it! A gorgeous fabric that I immediately could see my mom wearing. Maybe it is about time I sewed something for my mom. Or a midi or maxi skirt for myself…
Next up, a bright fairly sheer bunch of goodness with giraffe (?) spots. I love everything about this. It isn’t blatently animal print. The colours: purple, spring green and turquoise are right from my closet. I wonder how cinnaspice snuck that peek… Of course, black is in there too so it goes with everything. I immediately thought kaftan but maybe I need to get out of my comfort zone with sheers.
Also a lovely plum that has a bit of stretch. It feels like a wool blend to me. Even if it isn’t, this is a gorgeous fabric that has to be a pencil skirt…I think.
She also included some patterns! Once you get past the Melanie Griffiths 80s illustrations there are some great basics in there: a loose-fitting blouse and shirt dress. And the madarin collar blouse is adorable. Not sure why the cover model is so sad. “Sweetie, you have a cute blouse on. It’s going to be okay.”
Thanks, cinnaspice! I hope you enjoy your package though it doesn’t have as many little goodies as this one.
