Fabric suggestion!

Postby mangajude » Wed Jun 01, 2011 1:26 pm

I am about to make my DD (nearly 5 months but still fit newborn) a simple pinafore/itti bitty dress with matching nappy wrap. I really love Alexander Henry fabric and all thing unusual and slightly goth. Has anyone seen any unusual/ kitsch fabric recently, the more I look the more I confuse my self! :-?

I really need your help/suggestions please! :D


I really like the ghastlies,

however its on pre order/only available from the states!

I may given in and order it as well, but my husband will say 'you spent how much on fabric?!!!' :giggle:

Also just to be awkward, although I like goth stuff i'm not too sure about putting her in very graphic skulls, ok with cartoon ones but not realistic one!

Love the Ghastlies- nearly got some last halloween, but didn't in the end- got the orange with little black skull & crossbones instead...

I also spend a fortune on fabric!!

If you did order from the US i find it generally only takes a week to arrive :)

Thank you ladies! :giggle: I think I may put a pre-order in, feeling slightly better about spending money on fabric! Just need to decide, dark grey or pink! I will just tell him that it would cost a lot more to but a dress this specialised, he wont mind really, poor man!

I know its lovely, I have just been very naughty and pre-ordered 3 yards of the grey and 3 yards of the pink! :giggle:
I have been lusting after it for ages now and finally gave in!
