Fast forward about 8 years later, I was shopping in Fabric Depot and I saw a Batik that caught my eye. The colors and patterns reminded of me a city scape at dusk. I wanted it right then and there only to find out it's 109 inches wide. It was actually made for a quilt back. Which to me was a double score since that meant twice as much fabric!
Recently I have been working on full circle skirts to sell in my shop and oh darn, I just have to experiment with fabrics for girls around my size. So I used my killer find of a Batik and sure enough, the pattern for my size uses quite a bit of fabric. So the extra width was perfect and it turned out exactly as I had hoped! So on this glorious early spring day we are having here in Portland I thought I would take the opportunity to get some pictures of my todays fabulous outfit.
I also put out a new item in my store on March 1st. Velvet Leggings! Yes! They are so fabulous and soft. I can't say enough good things about them. They come in 7 different colors, sizes 14-32 and are only $40 dollars. I hope you like them! More new items to come very soon! www.ChubbyCartwheels.com
