I have been pecking away at my kilt project (this year for sure!), and recently came into a trash-bag full of upholstery fabrics from my local FREECYCLE.ORG group.
Suffice it to say that I will have a set of waistcoats in the future, in paisleys and other nice fabrics.

And perhaps a few sets of spatterdashes as well.

Oh that's great! Thanks Lorelei, I'll go have a look how it works.

Comment by Lorelei Throckmorton on February 2, 2014 at 3:12pm

Anyone seeking to donate stash to others might consider the Sell Swap & Buy group here at SE - it's also for giving away! post possible donations at http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/theworldwidesteampunkexchange

I've been wanting to do the same, miss Cherries. Just not sure of the  format. Put it in etsy maybe - or make a gallery here with offers accepted... O course, both require taking the time to measure and photograph :-/ I'll be curious what solution you adopt.

Comment by Miss Cherries Jubilee on February 1, 2014 at 10:48pm

I will be going through my fabric stash in the next month ans something has to give!  I currently have far more fabric and notions than time.  So...there will be some great fabrics up for grabs.  Stay tuned.

Comment by Professor Argon Bats on December 3, 2013 at 2:00pm

Any of you as obsessed about black and white stripes as I am? I typically avoid synthetic fibers, but this was too good to resist: 1" stripe poly-cotton blend sold by the 15yd bolt (enough for a big bustle with layers, pleating, or whatnot), $46.25 at 60" wide. That's about $3/yard. Right now they have free shipping for orders of $50 and more, so just add some thread or something, and you're there :-)

No affiliation with the shop, just couldn't resist buying more fabric I don't really have the time for, ahem, and had to spread the temptation. Because I'm evil. There.

Comment by Sharon Fiscus on November 14, 2013 at 2:47pm

That is a delightful outfit.  I shall look into working it into my garb.

Comment by Professor Argon Bats on November 11, 2013 at 11:43am

This would make a very wearable outfit...

Comment by Miss Cherries Jubilee on July 28, 2013 at 10:01am

I don't usually post such things, but this is too good to keep to myself.  This is a soft green color 100% linen for under $5 a yard!!!!

The Crazy Sale is here!
 
With this week's Crazy Sale, you will be able to receive one product at 50% off, for one day only.
 
But remember, the catch is that this product will never be put on the Crazy Sale again...
 
Today only, you can get the Lightweight IL020 Parrot Green Linen for a fraction of the price.

That's right, instead of paying the usual $9.78 per yard for this premium linen; you can now get it for $4.89 per yard.
 
At 3.5 ounces per square yard, IL020 has become recognized as our handkerchief linen. This linen has an incredibly gentle hand and has very few slubs making it a truly elegant fabric.
 
Just to warn you -- our crazy sale fabric has sold out very fast our last couple sales and supplies are very limited!
