New fabric from Mood

I took advantage of a fabric sale from Mood earlier in the week.  I was pleasantly surprised when I found in my mailbox yesterday a package with this new fabric.  This was a quick turn around--thank you Mood!

The fabric colors were not as I thought they would be and actually they are more of what I prefer.  I know I will make some sort of blouse/top from this, just not sure which pattern I will use.

Without further ado, here is the fabric--



It is a repeat design not a true border print.  The fabric is a silk with lycra blend.  I also have two fabrics I got recently from Michael Levine in Los Angles.  I forgot I had not taken photos of this fabric.  Adding this to my to do list.

    1. I normally buy 3 yds of fabric when purchasing on line unless I know the specific amount of what a pattern is calling for. If I was going to make a jacket and skirt I might buy more. For me 3 yds gives the insurance I need should I mess up cutting something out and then it gets messed up when sewing it. Thank you for stopping buy and reading my blog as well as taking the time to comment!

I am adding comment moderation as I found recently some comments that really have nothing to do with the post at hand. I may decide to change this in the future. Sorry a few bad apples ruin something for many!
