Yes, I was so excited to finally get a blouse that fit, that I am once again happy about sewing. I've finally decided that the "Hearts A Flutter" blouse is just not going to do it for me, so on the advice of some sewers over at Stitcher's Guild I purchased the Loes Hines' tunic. Fit right out of the envelope---a true miracle!
So I bought two new lengths of material (neither one for another blouse of course, but just because I was happy). Both are from Fabric Mart. The grey stripe is a cashmere/wool blend from Ralph Lauren and at $20/yard it was too good a bargain to pass up. The second fabric is an ice blue velour for a warm up suit come winter. If I hadn't visited Fabric Mart during the PR weekend in Philadelphia, I would never have given Fabric Mart a second glance, even though Carolyn ( http://sewingfantaticdiary.blogspot.com/) is always talking about their fabulous deals. After all, Fabric.com is in my own hometown. But now I'm hooked on Fabric Mart. At least I'm back to being happy while sewing!
