A blessing of fabrics!
Do you remember my "Little Dresses for Africa?" That project just about exhausted my supply of suitable cotton fabrics. I have been wanting to be able to make some more, and just hoping for a good deal on fabrics to appear. On Saturday, an acquaintance called and said that she had 3 boxes of fabrics that belonged to her deceased mother, and would I like to have them? I went there today and got them. Most of the fabrics are the old double knit that was so popular, probably in the 70's, but there are also a number of nice colorful cottons that I will be able to make into the dresses! I am very grateful and pleased. Can any of you give me suggestions for what I might do with the double knits? They are nice, but just not what people usually wear these days.
