I haven't done a fabric-enabling post for waaay too long!

I thought I'd start off with some Apricot stretch satin cotton



and look at this rayon sweater knit to go with it!

They're just begging to be turned into a comfy cool pair of slacks and an amazing knit top, with a sweet little knit topper from this lacy-look sweater knit!

Nummm!

All from Sawyer Brook Fabrics


Or how about some casually sweet but sexy evening wear, such as this gorgeous crinkle cotton gauze for a shell top and jacket! Over Tuxedo Black slacks or skirt of comfy stretch rayon sateen

From
Gorgeous Fabrics

Swit Swoo!

Maybe Spring Green is your Thing! If so, how 'bout this wowzer Ann Taylor 100% linen for slacks or skirt, with a Maggie London 100% cotton blouse! And the little lacy knit topper from the Apricot enablings!

From Emma One Sock

Ahhhhhh...love the springtime smell of fresh fabrics!

And that's why we have stash. I should pull out some pieces. I have the light weight lime green linen for a nice blouse jacket, the peach silk crepe and also aqua, and a grey silk cotton machine washable blend for a light weight jacket.

AARRGH! I'm already drowning in fabric! and of course it only took me two seconds to snag some of that rayon/lycra knit. Stop it now

Ooooh, I love your stash collection and I'm such a sucker for floral. What a great find...I'm guessing you already have something whipped up and on to your next piece?

None are in my stash. Yet. But I am thinking I have room for that steel grey cotton crinkle.

As I'm very narrow in my fabric colors (charcoal family, certain berry reds, certain blues) I like to scout out other color families of fabrics and put them together just for the joy of enabling others.

Makes me feel ever so much better with all my fabric stash if I can make other people increase theirs.

Maggie London floral is on its way to me. I think I will make my dress from my couture class in that. It is way outside my usual style, but so is couture sewing.
