Sunday, I order items to add to my stash. I needed another spool of Kreinik #4 braid in Purple Passion to finish Dew Drop Fairy so I added a chart to my order since shipping was half the price of the spool. Fire Dance by Kustom Krafts.
Now patterns led to looking through fabric as I do have a black satin which at the moment is to be used as godets on a smooth gown. Of course I don't know if I should pair it with a solid color, a floral print, or something else. I may have black velvet left over from the latin dress I really should start making. I ended coming across these fabrics:
I decided earlier I need a new smooth dress. My current one is the red one that I posted pictures of in March. As much as I love that dress, I just saw a picture from a recent competition and the 6 finalists were either wearing red or dark pink. My dress would have a hard time standing out on that floor.
Suggestions for fabric pairings or designs are welcome. With my dance teacher leaving, I may have also lost his input. I have to see if he's still willing to help. If he is, I may have to drag him to the garment district next time I go fabric stashing, I mean shopping.
