After several trips and a lot of drooling at the Elliott Berman site, I received an email that had Designer Fabrics 20% off...and I knew what I wanted...this Milly piece...
I bought three panels to make a dress - seriously what else would I make! *LOL* But I wanted you to see how this deliciousness arrived...a good presentation always makes me swoon...because to me it means the seller loves the fabric as much as I do!
...and the actual fabric laying on my cutting table...
Now and again, I've used a piece of fabric from the collection and some of the comments have been that they wished they'd been able to buy a piece of the fabric at the time I purchased it...so I'm telling you that if you like this, head on over to Elliott Berman's site where it's still in stock and pick up a panel or two.
Now the amazing Heather B., bought a piece of this lusciousness from Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics fame. And after checking out Gorgeous Fabric's awesome new website (seriously, y'all need to head on over and see it for yourself!) I couldn't find any on the site so it must be gone. However, Heather made this wonderful dress from the fabric.

I will be using my piece of fabric sooner rather than later...I really don't want it to linger in the collection too long since it will make a great summer frock. And I have a wonderful idea for it, something that follows along with my new sewing idiom (a distinct style or character in music, art). It's number four on my new sewing list - the one I'm actually going to sew - if you know what I mean!
BTW, I've decided to feature on the blog a piece or two of fabric that captures my eye during my travels through the online fabric sites. I will tell you what I'd like to make with it and then if you like it or not, purchase some or don't. I do have to tell you that I don't discern between higher priced and lower priced pieces of fabric - it's how the fabric speaks to me and if it's a type of fabric that I enjoy sewing with.
Okay...I have a very busy weekend. The grandbabies are here for the day and I have some other things up my sleeve.
...as always more later!
