Dear readers, my children's school obligations and holiday preparations kept me from blogging and sewing last week. But here what I have for you today! Two lucky winners are getting the great 'How much fabric?' cards, offered by Gwen to the readers of Frabjous Couture. Congratulations, Isis and Joen! To claim your prize, please send an e-mail to Gwen at gwynhug(at)gmail(dot)com!
It was interesting to see that most of the commenters (and myself) tend to overbuy fabric to be on the safe side. I personally tend to round up to a full yard. Isis was one of the few who asks staff members or checks information in pattern books.
Isis: "I discuss it with someone who work in the store. They usually know
pretty well how much fabric that is needed. Or flip through one of the
patterns books and look for a similar model. I would love to have set 2."
Joen: "I generally buy 3 yards for a jacket (used to buy 2 but
found I never had enough!!) 2 yards for pants or a dress. More yardage
is added if the fabric is a narrower width the above usually works but I
have been disappointed many time so the guide would be great to win!!! I
would need Set 1 if I was the lucky winner."
In any case, I think these cards can help save some money (for extra fabric) or time! A wise investment in the long run!
Thank you everyone for participating and if you want to treat yourself to these cards just in time for the holiday season, visit Gwen's website here.
Finally, the random name picker to document all the entries:
Have a great week!
