Project Maternity – lesson 1 – Don’t trust the internet [fabric]


FABRIC HAS ARRIVED!!! woooooooooohooo!!!…. well… kinda

ok… those are 2 different greens… *facepalm*… actually it’s COMPLETELY my fault! I’m blaming the internet but the internet only does what it’s told… let’s review.
actual fabric:

fabric as advertised on website:

now… they do look like similar colours on the photos… but any old fool knows that cameras alter the quality of colours, as do computer monitors… but what I can’t forgive myself for is the stripe-disparity! and there’s NO excuse for that! one picture has a tape measure next to it so I can SEE that the stripes are tiny tiny, not as big as they clearly are against the dressform…

pssht.. you live you learn, I’ll still use it 🙂 but I’m going to have to do it the old fashioned way and take a sample of the bright green stripes to a fabric shop somewhere and find a matching jersey.. I need stretch for these waistbands!!!

nevermind… lets gaze lovingly at this beauty!!

mmmmmmmmmmmm 🙂 this pattern, with these colours,  makes me SO happy… this fabric is going to very much enjoy being ‘quirky maternity skirt’ Micheal Miller I want your fabric babies!
