Beautiful new buttermilks are posted at EOS--some are marked as "limited yardage." Couldn't resist two of them.

Oh, that's not kind. I just put in an order with Linda on Sunday. I can't order again before I've received the first package . . . can I?

Yikes! Limited yardage? Oh no! I love some of the new prints, though.

Thanks for posting this but I went, I saw, I did not buy. There are some nice prints but I have waaayyy too much buttermilk in my collection already!

I recently purchases some of her rayon lycra jersey and they are sooooooooooooooo nice and soft and make the best tees in both the 11 and 14 oz. I'm in love with those knits.

I have loved looking at the buttermilks but wasn't sure what to use them for. They don't have as much stretch as other knits do they? What do you like to make out of this fabric?

And I'd like to know if the fabric is hot to wear? I see they are a polyester and lycra blend, it sounds like it might be hot if I make a top with it? I recently made an all poly top and it's so hot I can't stand to wear it (I'm always cold too, so I don't get it).

That's why I have stayed clear of the buttermilks. I made a polyester top recently and I boil in it! (it's the one my picture is here) I'm not at the age to wear something hot right now. I thought there was another thread on this that said it's best to make winter garments from the buttermilk or maybe it was peachskin.

I don't mind going to work but it's that 8 hour wait to go home that's a B!TCH.

I have only made one thing out of buttermilk (a t-shirt) and it *is* hot to wear. I think I will save my remaining buttermilks for either skirts, or for long sleeved winter t-shirts where I actually want to be warm.

I find it really hot to wear - but I am of "that age"! Also, I live in a hot climate. More of a winter fabric around here. It does feel nice and smooth and is easy to sew and care for. I really liked some of the prints!
