New and Coming Soon - Ooh! Slinky!

Remember my Drafting Tops?
First there was the dark grey marl version...
Then the black cardigan hack  - which was a Christmas present for The Girl
And last but not least... the silvery stripey one?

At the time, Jill Yee (the designer) mentioned she might make the fabrics available to buy in her It Terations Etsy shop, if people were interested.

Well... now is your chance!
Until mid-May, she is offering a selection of high quality drapey jersey fabrics in her shop here.

She sent me some samples and I can confirm that these are really lovely and awesome value for money!

The "solid navy" is a wonderful midnight blue which would make a beautiful waterfall-fronted cardigan, or how about a wrap-fronted dress?
And look at the grey wool-mix - ooh ooh ooh, wouldn't that be great for an everyday cardigan, or maybe a skirt?  Or both?
And the stripey thinner jerseys would be perfect for a Summer Concert Tee or two!

The current listings are for 2-yard pieces, but Jill is happy to cut you a larger continuous length on request - just send her a convo through Etsy.

And as if that was not enough... Jill is also planning to make another kit available, for a lingerie / pj set in either silk with lace trim, or jersey with picot elastic trim.

Say that again, Roo?
SILK!
Or jersey?!
Camisole and french knickers!
Oooooh!
Seriously slinky for summer :D
I'll let you know when the kits become available - but I for one am really rather excited!

Thanks for the heads up on the fabric! It seems to be a very good deal for quality fabric and her shipping is reasonable too. Looking forward to sewing a couple of cardigans:)
