I popped into Spotlight again this morning to check out their sale knits to play with on the new overlocker.
The "dry knits" are on sale for $2 per metre (there does seem to be a bit of variation in which shops have what knits at the sale price, but I digress). These knits have a matte finish and I think they are poly-lycra. Nice and drapey.
I bought 5m of this one - I think it looks like the detail of an etching...
A floral with a black background - I am hoping it doesn't end up too eighties Laura Ashley but that will depend on the pattern I choose...
A huuuuge orchid print (yes, that's my hand):
And one of the not-$2 prints at a different shop - large scale rose (each one is hand-sized)
Now to think of patterns - I reckon McCalls 6081 for one of them and a wrap or wrap-style dress or two for the others.
