Grey rayon jacquard

I'm hyped up on decongestant, because my dear hubby shared his head cold with me ... somehow I don't think the "marriage is about sharing" should include pathogens, but it is what it is.

I'll take a pic of the cording on the waist corset in morning, as my sewing area (that hubby still calls "the dining room") has an east-facing window and morning pics are best in there.

Meanwhile, a little more fabric-bragging is in order.  I picked up a lovely rayon grey jacquard on sale last week.
Ain't it purty?  I paid only $2.38/yd after the sale, the discount, AND a coupon code :)  I also bought 9 yds of it, so I'll be using this off-and-on for quite a while: jackets, linings, vests, corset outer layers, waistcoats, trim, bodice stomachers, and outside facings for collarless jackets and blouses are just some uses that immediate spring to mind.  And this time, I didn't buy the last of it ... fabric.com still has quite a bit left as of this writing.

Not that I would ever enable anyone ... I just love fabric.

Too funny! I ordered this exact same fabric...but for a dress I had in mind...I ended up returning it because I could NOT think of a project that such a shiny fabric would work for...can't wait to see what you come up with LOL

Barb, I'm having trouble visualizing as a dress also ... but what a coat or jacket lining it will make! :) It may take me a couple months ... I seem to be behind the weather on sewing.
