At one time in my life, many, many, many years ago, I fell in love with a beautiful purple fabric. I was taking my first sewing lesson, at a Singer store in the mall. I remember it was during the summer, because the mall was nice and cool during the summer heat. I was a shy kid who read a lot of books, and I think my mother must have decided that I needed to get out of the house for a while. So, she signed me up for a class that I took over the summer break.
I found this fabric swatch in an old sewing box that I haven’t used in a long time.
Ha, ha, ha, isn’t is lovely? I think it is polyester. For my project, I made a maxi dress. I think this must have been the early 70’s. And now for a bigger laugh, I found this Polaroid picture!
I remember there was a fashion show in the mall where we modeled our garments. The back of the picture says I was the “deb” winner. I remember I won electric scissors, which I still have.
Funny how our choice of favorite fabric changes over the years... LOL.
Looking forward to everyone’s Favorite Fabric Friday entries on http://www.myquiltblog.com/.
