So, I was all set to order my fabric choice for my Sewing for Victory dress when I started to get a wandering eye and noticed some other fabrics that were absolutely crying out for me to purchase and prance around in.
All the fabrics want to get with this. (That joke is probably funnier if you can see me actually attempting to look alluring. . . )
Anyways, I thought maybe I’d toss up a little postlette and see what y’all think. And I can try that polling feature that I’ve never used before!
First, here’s the inspiration dress again:
Here are the choices:
This is a Valorie Wells cotton voile. It’s the fabric that most commenters last time thought was the best choice. And I really like it. My worry is that it will wash me out–since I’m so pale and vampiric and all. (I’m only sparkly when I roll in glitter.)
This one is by Tula Pink. It’s also a cotton voile. My favorite thing about it is that it has hidden snails–snails!! They’re no fun when you step on them while wearing socks (ask me how I know. . . ), but they’re terribly cute in a slimy sort of way. Of course, these snails aren’t slimy. ‘Cause they’re fabric, silly!
And now this is the print I really want, but it only comes in quilting cotton and that won’t work for this dress.
IT HAZ FROGS!!
But, it’s not a real choice. I just thought maybe your day needed to be brightened 🙂
So, what are your thoughts?
