Sewing Garage Sale - Good Deals!!!

As promised, here's the update on all of the fabulous finds I purchased at the Sewing Garage Sale.  I purchased a total of 59.75 yards of fabric for guess how much?!?!?!?  A grand total of $78.30 and that includes sales tax!!!  That's an average of approximately $1.30 per yard.  That's just amazing!  And, I got some really great stuff!

I've sorted them by categories.  First - we'll start with the yardage I would use for linings.  Most of these are polyester or a blend of some sort, but I love the prints.



Next, I have a complete outfit here - the black/teal on the left will be the new Sewaholic Gabriola skirt and the crinkle knit on the right will be a matching tee of some sort.

Here's a selection of knits including a very nice red/black/white stretch mesh (2nd from the left) and a black/pink/tan circle print (2nd from the right).  I'm not much of a pink person so I was reluctant to purchase this one, but it had such a nice hand, I couldn't resist.

These two cottons - the left one will make a nice blouse and the one on the right - maybe a dress?

These two linens.  I was not sure about the one on the left, but it grew on me as the day went on so I snapped it up.  The red and blue stripe linen will make a nice summer dress - I have a Vogue Vintage pattern in mind for this one.



The two rayons above are already destined for projects.  The red/white polka dot will be Butterick 5917 - a dress with a ruffle along the front neckline.

BUTTERICK MISSES RUFFLES NECKLINE RAISED WAIST DRESS SEWING PATTERN 5917 SZ 6-22

The blue/white will be either Simplicity 2281 or Simplicity 2406 - both Cynthia Rowley dresses with interesting sleeves.

 




And this wonderful fabric - isn't it luscious!  It will be a suit/jacket of some sort.

 Here's a close-up.  It's just yummie!

Just a quick post today.  Until next time - Happy Sewing!

  1. Fun! I am still stash busting...and getting pretty bored with my choices. I love that tweed, and the blue-black rayon.
