A short post, and a confession: I am buying one yard of fabric. Booo, hisssss...I know. But wait, please let me explain!!!
Last week, after the Kokka stash success that resulted in a new skirt for Frida, I had the impulse to make myself a skirt from a Japanese linen-cotton stashed fabric. It struck me that Melody Miller's retro clocks would make a pretty nifty garment, and I had one yard of clocks in orange in the stash. Perfect! I dug up a basic skirt pattern and dived in...without much planning, as it turned out.
The result was a front piece cut followed by the realization that I didn't have enough to cut the corresponding back piece. Oops.
Well, today I decided to let myself off the hook and buy another yard of this fabric, despite my vow of stash fidelity. (Or maybe this is a case in which stash fidelity requires a small purchase? I'll let you be the judge.)
Melody Miller's orange clock fabric is on sale at Pink Castle and, until the end of the day, there's also a 20% off coupon. No, I'm not going to link the website and the coupon because I am not going to be an enabler! Jeesh. My transgression is my own burden to bear -- go ahead and be virtuous today, without me!
I'll be back on the wagon tomorrow.
And shortly after that I will also be clad in a very cool skirt. See you on the other side.
