So I looked for some grey pinstriped wool while I was in NYC in December and found this great wool with a little added spandex. I also found a fairly heavy, green, satin looking fabric which also included about 3 percent spandex so I thought I'd try that too because DD wanted to use the same colors that she had seen in the picture.
Honestly, I don't sew much fashion fabric, because most of the things I make for the little girls are out of cotton quilting or heirloom type fabrics. Since I used to sew more of my own adult type clothing in the 70's and 80's the fabrics have changed considerably, so needless to say, I was a bit hesitant to cut into this beautiful wool.

hand me down that I made about 18 months ago.
