At patchwork last week I bought this gorgeous already quilted Japanese cheater fabric...
The minute I saw it, I thought " I must have that"...
I was thinking of making a nice warm dressing gown, but the more I look at it, the more a jacket looks more appealing....I need a dressing gown, but!!
It's fairly thick, I washed it to see if the dye would run, but it didn't and it washed up beautifully, I don't even think it shrunk at all.
I thought something simple, edge to edge front, shaped in a little at the waist with perhaps a Mandarin collar.
The best part was the price, only $25 a metre, I was told it's normally $32 metre.
Each month at our guild p/work group a local shop comes in with their fabrics, patterns, kits, etc. and have lovely discounted items just for that day.
I bought 4 metres, so with a bit of luck, there might be enough for a jacket and a short gown..
