I love knit fabric, not just for Shira’s dresses but for my own. It is so easy to whip up a dress, mostly on my serger and voila! About 2 hours of work and it’s done.Often it is the simplest pattern that works best with knits. Something I need to remind myself.I’ve been seeing in the fashion blogs that midi length skirts are back! I thought that would never happen. I also never thought that big full eyebrows would be the rage.Luckily for me, I only plucked my eyebrows a few times. Never into that tiny little strip. I just left them alone. These days, as they get lighter in color I do need to ‘pump them up’. At least it is my natural eyebrows that accept the pencil or powder, so it’s not too fake looking.I know, I wrote about hating polyester. And here I go and buy a polyester knit. I figure that when it’s cold I can wear a cotton camisole underneath. What can I say, I found this fabric on the remainder table at Michael Levine’s. I fell in love with the print and color, also, this is a pretty heavy knit, it has real body to it.I think I paid $10 for the whole piece, so if down the line I’m not happy, I will add it to the good will pile. I guess you could call this me made fast fashion. What can I say, this dress makes me very very happy. I hope to keep it in the wardrobe for quite a while.
Oh, and I was at Michael Levine’s this past week, guess what I bought? Yup some more polyester knit… I hope to use it soon so you can see what is getting me into all this trouble.Leah
