Next Up - Vogue 8756

I ran into a local fabric store the other day, ostensibly to pick up some bright cloth for some pillow cases I was making for my great nephew  for his birthday.  I wanted to make up just a small token with some machine embroidery and some fabrics with his favorite characters.

It wasn't a  shop I frequent for garment fabric and I wasn't looking for anything for myself, but as I hurried past the final sale table, I came across the fabric below and couldn't leave it there.  I can't even begin to tell you what it is.  It's quite thin, and shiny, and a deep eggplant color.  It's one of those fabrics that is a bit funky and deserves an equally funky pattern.

I've settled on this Vogue pattern.  I love the way it drapes, and I love the diagonal seams in the front panels.  I hope I'm not wrong, but I do think this will work out well.  Can't wait to start, but it won't be before next week at the earliest.

In the meantime, my little nephew is getting his embroidered pillow cases!
