Fabric Haul Inspiration

I don't usually publish much besides finished garment posts, but I recently took in a massive fabric haul and needed to jot down my inspiration. At the Bay Area Sewists fabric swap meetup last week, I snagged a printed rayon, buffalo check, and about four yards of polyester for muslins. Then I headed down the street to Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabrics, where we get 20% off on meetup days. I had been saving for this occasion, and admittedly went a little wild. But oh man it was fun!

Here are some tops I've got planned from this shopping trip. I'm focusing on adding some more comfy but stylish knits to my wardrobe, and also couldn't resist a couple of printed wovens (at bottom).

1. Turtlenecks - maybe from My Image Fall/Winter magazine?
2. Cowl top - inspired by the new cowl add-on to the SBCC Bronx Dress
3. Presto! Popover Top
4. Mandy Boat Tee
5. Maya Top
6. BurdaStyle 07/2013 #130

First up on my sewing table though is another Pattern Magic dress. I loved making my first one, but felt it could use a few more tweaks such as firmer interfacing. I'm going to try it out this time in a strapless version, and hopefully have it ready for the Bay Area Sewists Frocktails event this weekend. If you're interested in joining us and haven't gotten your ticket yet, contact the Chuleenan on the event page!

Let's hope my sewing goals aren't too large for my sewing time...
