One Pattern, Seven Bloggers: The Fabric

Photobucket

I feel like it took me forever to find my fabric for this project, but I finally found three yards of vintage calico!  Bethesda Thrift Store came to my rescue with this pretty piece of cotton for $1.99.  I also picked up some eyelet curtains from the antique store for $3, which I am going to use to make a petticoat to peek out of the bottom of the dress.  It fits with my summer/country theme, and I hope to wear it on my trip to Colorado next month.

  1. So glad you found fabric! I'm also impressed with your finds, such as $3 curtains. I have really gotta move somewhere where the fabric options are a little more open.

  3. Amy those fabrics are beautiful!!! I love your idea of a petticoat that will peak out from under the skirt hem. I think that is a beautifully feminine touch. What a great price also! I am seriously getting excited about seeing your dress finished. Sam xox
