‘Swatchcha doing?

25 Jul

So many swatches, so many choices.  And more fabric just keeps rolling in!  I have been asking for help deciding on  coordinating colours for the lovely flocked organza

and considering everything from simple white

to hot pink and purple

then from out of nowhere, a friend gifts me a truckload of turquoise lycra.  So moving from the idea of wild and crazy this-would-really-“pop”-on-the-dance-floor back to something a little more classically lovely.

Lots to ponder, especially since there will be one more dress before I tackle this one.  I think.

    The turquoise is more understated, but gorgeous (and since you have the fabric, may as well go with it!). The bling will pick up the flowers, I’m sure.

      Thanks Mel. I have had a lot of time lately to look at gorgeous gowns and plan and replan the next couple of gowns. Almost as much fun as the actual sewing:-)

    Just came across your blog meandering about the web looking for blue Flocking. I love the aqua flocked organza above, where can I get some? J
