Ithaca, New York...
A friend posted this fabric from Joann’s website to Facebook, and it was so terrible! Like looking at a train wreck….I had to have it. My local Joann’s had just under 3 yards and I snapped it up in time to make this for the 4th of July holiday.
I used the Coffee Date pattern and added pockets. This is my second time machine-blind stitching a hem and inserting an invisible zipper. It went together sooooo easy, there were no hair-pulling moments (except when adding seam allowances). I also now know why quilting cottons are not the best choices for clothes, because they bunch a lot when wearing and don’t hang right. But, this one looks good!
