Last week I walked into Spotlight wanting some wool blend suiting fabric for a cape I've had in mind for a while.
I didn't buy the wool fabric (not a very good range - unlike the vast range in the catalogue) but I did come out with the most amazing fabric I've seen in ages. It was stacked with the blue/beige end on show and when I pulled it out I was gobsmacked!!
So, 2 metres of fabric and a few hours of sewing I have a wonderful new dress to show for it.
The pattern is a vintage 'STYLE' pattern, I'm not even sure you can still buy this brand?
It will be perfect for our Autumnal weather.
