I do my preparation the old fashion way with tailor tacks. I have not been able to find a good product that works better for me. I also don't have a table that I lay everything out on, so most of the prep happens in my lap or with me bent over on the floor.
I have also never done anything in plaid or with a fabric that needed matching, so I need more practice. I guess I will see how well I did matching once I get started sewing. I tried being as anal as possible. I mean I really tried. I hope it works. .
As I started marking, ADD (attention to delightful distractions) took full hold. I do not like marking the fabric. So what better way to distract myself than with looking for fabric on the internet. Hours could be lost doing this. I think I hit the jackpot when I found Banksville Designer Fabrics. And the even better news is that it is in my home state.
Look at these fabrics....Do they REALLY have this much? Have any of you done business with them? I see a field trip in the making.
I had sound these fabrics on another site only $120.00 a yard!
This may end up being a hand sewn dress. Has anyone out there ever sewn with a beaded or sequined silk fabric? Anyone live close to here and want to meet up with me?
