I got 5 different fabrics from the sale on Monday at Ohco’s.
Here they are and their yardages.
This deep gold duchess satin is one I would have gotten more of if I saw it. There is 2 yards. 58″ wide. It also has a nice deep sheen to it. It is going to look nice next to my skin. I hope to use it for a Han Dynasty costume I have had on the back burner for years. If I can’t use it for that I’ll make a fancy dress shirt I can wear for work.
This blue suede cloth is the only thing I got that I specifically had a use for. There is 4 yards. 60″ wide. It’s a really deep blue that thankfully shies away from being black. It will be older Katara’s skirt.
This sunburst pattern really caught my eye. It was probably the first thing I put in my bag. Had there been more I would have gotten it. There is a yard here and 60″ wide. It’s probably going to be pillows centered on those big elegant 10″wide sunbursts.
Then there is this very lovely pink duchess satin. There are 10.3 yards of it. 60″ wide
I have no idea what it should be but it screams sumptuous satin ball gown circa 1905 or earlier. It has this beautiful rich sheen to it that I know would be accentuated by gathers or ruffles. Light plays off it fantastically.
It can be hard to capture the color. This is an indoor picture.
This standard sheer is something I think I will use on that Han Dynasty costume or a Nefertiti costume. There is 4 yards, 120″ wide. I got it because finding bulk sheer was on my list of things to look for. I tested a piece to see how my gathering foot would handle it and I am pleased.
So 25.3 yards for $25 bucks. That is a sweet deal.♥
