It beats me how I always seem to find
just the fabric I'm looking for when I wander into my local charity
shops. This week I was hoping to find something suitable to make
cover-up to go over the chemise of the previous post.
Lo and behold, the perfect fabric was
waiting for me. It's a sheer material, opaque rather than see-through, with a slight crepe texture,
very drapey but not slippery at all. As you can see, it's black with a cream tartan pattern. The almost three metre piece was
a bargain at $3. Just what style this cover-up will take shall be
revealed in the next post.
