When Halloween is approaching and you’re posting images of yourself in a headband made of clovers, you start to question yourself. These photos have been a pending share on my site since March and I wanted to get them onto the blog. Better late than never! But to be honest with you, remove the headband and this top can totally be the cutest holiday top. Gold and green? Hello!
Mostly, I wanted to share these two fabrics. Both of them were previous months’ shipments of Threads of the Month, a monthly fabric subscription that I run over at Thread + Grain.
**updated 07/21/22: I retired TOTM and re-opened under the Patterns for Pirates name: Fabric for Pirates! Same concept, same awesome happy fabric mail, just a new name!
Both of these fabrics were ones that I was super excited to send out to my subscribers. I had been eyeballing the gold one especially, trying to decide when to send it out to everyone. It’s seriously so pretty. It has a stone grey base with a metallic gold thread is 96.5%POLY and 3.5%SPANDEX. It sits a little on the thinner side, but the drape is fabulous for many different projects and the shine on it is so delightful. I also made myself a dress for my inlaw’s Christmas party last year with it, so I’m happy I brought it into the mix.
The emerald green fabric was another favorite of mine. I like shiny things apparently. And putting them together in one top was a pretty sweet deal for me. The fabric is a 95% POLY 5% SPANDEX FDY rib knit. Solids aren’t usually my style, but this was calling to me. It has a similar drape to the gold, so I thought they would pair well. And they did!
