"Rosie the Riveter" pattern
22 August 2017
My precious fabric has arrived
I picked it up at the post office today, and had to wait until I got home to get it open. Fabric Mart is thankfully dumped FedEx's SmartPost in favor of the USPS Priority mail, which means I get my order 1-3 days sooner. It does look as photographed, although it is a lighter weight than I like to use for jeans ... so now for a Plan B. I have this pattern:
Yup, I intend to dress up as Rosie the Riveter come autumn, when it is rumored first the overnight lows may actually get lower than 70F, and then the daytime highs may actually go below 85F! A nice linen and cotton blend in this weight ought to work no matter what the weather does when Hallowe'en comes around. It could be some fun.
