A while back, I went to Joann's to get some Simplicity patterns, which were on sale for a dollar. I was going to get the same patterns online for eight dollars a piece (on sale, too) but it didn't work out, and I'm glad it didn't because one buck a piece is much better. But instead of spending only a few dollars, I went home with $35 worth of fabric. What happened?
The clearance. Every clearance fabric was 50% off. Coat-weight wool for eight dollars a yard...I mean, that's a score! I hadn't been inside a fabric store in ages. I wasn't prepared mentally for the clearance section at all, and I had some spending cash on me. This is what I bought:
|for a coat|
|to line a coat|
I made a tank with this fabric, a stretch cotton blend. This fabric was like $2 a yard.
All I have to say is, those ruffles on the neckline were a pain! That's part of the reason the ruffle on the bottom was left raw...
