my georgia dress fabric from mood

Between my sewing machines in for tune-ups, a new job, and a bout with influenza (yuck!), it's been a long time! I have been able to get a little bit of sewing stuff done in between all that, including deciding on my Georgia Dress fabric... and it's here!

And it's my first time buying from Mood! And they even mail you your fabric in their famous Mood bag! Some day I will go to NYC visit them in person... but I digress. Here is my Georgia Dress fabric:

Thanks for all your input! I decided to go with some mid-weight cotton/lycra sateen in black. As awesome as an amazing print dress would be, I realized that I don't actually own a LBD and thought this would be a great oppurtunity to fill that gap in my closet. But I did also order a swatch of that yellow Oscar de la Renta tribal print.


Ordering swatches?! From Mood?! I feel like such a big, grown-up, sewing blogger now! And while I am spending a little more now on higher quality fabrics, I was surprised to find some of the options really reasonable, like my sateen at $8/yard.

Also, my StyleARC patterns arrived and are in progress, so stayed tuned for a update on those projects!

  1. Lovely fabric. Looking forward to hearing about your StyleARC patterns. I have the Susan top but haven't started it yet.

    1. The Susan Top looks like a great basic! I'm working on the Elle pants and the Marie jacket.

    1. Hmmmm... Wouldn't hurt to throw a few yards in your cart and see what the totals come to? :)

  3. Sadly the shipping to Australia is extortionate - I was about to order 2 yds. of fabric for about $40 and the postage was $36! I think I'll have to save up my purchases and do a lifetimes worth of shopping in person one day instead!
