I've been really good this summer, hardly buying fabric, but in the last month, there have been so many amazing new lines coming out, not to mention fantastic sales!! I resisted as long as I possibly could...and then my will completely and utterly broke.
I picked up a fat quarter bundle of Denyse Schmidt's new Chicopee line. The prints are not only rich in color but they are mostly small scale prints, which I tend to use the most often. I also love how most of the prints are tonal or just a few colors, rather than 72 different colors - the more limited the color scheme is in each print, the easier it is for me to mix it and match it with other fabrics and color schemes. I also picked up some yardage of the red dotted leaf print to possibly jump on the Washi Dress bandwagon and make a tunic for myself. I've never sewn clothes before, so it's going to take a lot of guts for me to cut into that yardage to do this, but I want to try :) You can pick up some Chicopee of your own at I Don't Do Dishes, Intrepid Thread and Pink Castle Fabrics.
These fun sale stash prints also snuck into my cart at Pink Chalk, including two beautiful Lecien Flower Sugar medallion prints in yellow and red as well as two La Dee Da floradots prints in aqua and purple.
