June Capsule Contest Finished!
Jalie Sweetheart top in poly/lycra print from Gorgeous Fabrics; TNT pant in deep raspberry linen from Textile Fabrics, Nashville. Light pink cotton interlock self-drafted tee and light pink (we'll call it strawberry for the purposes of the Capsule) TNT pants in poly/cotton blend from JoAnne fabrics. I made the necklace from stuff from Michael's. We had the month of June to complete this mini-wardrobe and it seemed like plenty of time when I started. I had to race to finish, though. The plan originally called for two tops made from beautiful fabric I bought on my trip to Nashville at Textile Fabrics. But I wanted to make a muslin before I cut into that expensive stuff. Well, the muslin is still sitting on my sewing table. So I did a quick wearable muslin of the Jalie Sweetheart top in a poly/lycra print from Gorgeous Fabrics. Some people are afraid to sew on knits. I have more trouble, it seems, with plain cotton fabric and no fear when it comes to knits. Guess it was all that training with Stretch n Sew back in the 60's!
