Woot! It’s Fabric for Pirates share day! My favorite time of the month!
It’s when I get to show off what we sent with the Fabric for Pirates subscription AND I get to share what I made with my portion of the yardage that was distributed. So fun, y’all! We’ve been doing this for several years and it’s fun every single month!
We sent out one of my new favorite fabric bases. I learned about pointelle through this subscription, actually! It’s one of those perfect fabrics that my whole family likes, you can use it for bottoms and tops, it has drape but isn’t clingy, and it’s sturdy but not stiff. I seriously love it.
Here are the specifics:
Ditzy Floral Pointelle
Width: 58/60″ GSM: 190.00 Material: 100% Polyester
I have to tell you about my choice in pattern.
I was so excited to make this Runabout Romper. I was all “it’s such a cute, spring outfit and I’ll take adorable photos outside.” And then it kept getting colder and colder…….and colder. And then f-ing snow showed up.
So here I am, inside. Pretending that the weather will start acting right. Hoping that I get to rock my romper soooooon.
