i really want to make something right now.

A couple days ago I went buy fabric in Brooklyn. I like going to the garment district to get inspiration and look at all the fabrics, but once I set my eye on something and then see the price tag, it's a bit of a downer (and when I say a little I mean a lot). So it makes me really excited when I go buy discount fabrics at prices that I can actually afford.
In total, I bought 7 yards of mint tulle ($1 per yd!), 24 yards of white tulle ($1 per yd!), 5 yards of green plaid ($1 per yd!), 3 yards of light green cotton ($3 per yd!), and 3 yards of ash pink IDK synthetic something ($1 per yd!).
I had only meant to buy 10 yards of white tulle, but Emily said that I should just get the whole bolt and I was like why not because I thought it would be easier to just get the whole thing instead of having it all rolled out. But in the end the cutter still ended up rolling the whole thing out...
A few days ago I was just going to make my circle skirt pattern for my patternmaking class, but then I got really into it and ended up sewing the whole thing.
The lace was only $1 for 2 yards, so total the skirt only took about $3 to make! Pretty happy with the outcome. I've been wearing it all day.

I've been wanting to sew all day! I want to make dresses and skirts. But I should really be doing other homework instead.

Love, Kaia
