Hey everybody! Happy Wednesday! Today, I wanted to take a moment and shine light on an amazing fabric company and their fabrics that I've been creating with lately. I just received some new fabrics Monday, so this is the perfect time to share them, my previous makes, upcoming makes, projects ideas....its a lot, lol, so lets just get right into it!
First thing first, Measure is not your typical fabric store. They are a boutique style fabric shop with a curated collection geared to their customer needs. They have an assortment of leathers, upholstery, quilting, apparel fabrics and so much more. I've created using one of their Pique knits, and two of their shirting fabrics, and they are so amazing! Beautiful fabrics to work with.
The first look I made was this New Look Jumpsuit using their Aztec Pique Knit. I love this jumpsuit! Its definitely one of my favorite jumpsuits I've made! It feels great and the fabric really gives it a retro vibe to me!
All done, but not yet photographed (blame the rain) is this black and white dress I made using this Graphic Abstract Shirting and Butterick 6552. I honestly didn't know what I was going to make with this piece of fabric, but looking through my stash I came across this pattern, and View A told me it was meant to me! The fabric looked exactly like mine! I had to make it! The fabric is really the star of this dress and the loop and ties in the front, only makes it better!
With the fabrics I just received, I don't have it all worked out yet, but I know this amazing Double-faced Woven Striped Novelty Tweed is going to be a jacket! I don't have any showstopper, wow jackets in my closet and I think this fabric will be perfect for it! I can already see it paired with a cami, skinny jeans, and heels! Its gonna be fabulous! And if for some reason, its not.....high waisted pencil skirt is option B! LOL!
This beautiful Golden Flower Challis is destined to be a dress. I don't have the pattern picked out yet, but when I do, I'll share my idea on Instagram so make sure to follow if you don't already!
The last piece or should I say pieces, I have are Soft Lambskin in the color Dark Peach! Y'all, I've never worked with lambskin but WOW, its so soft and beautiful! I'm really excited to create with this and I can totally see this as a sleeveless moto jacket!! Its going to be amazing! I can't wait!!
