|And someday you will, I promise!|
Not expecting to really find anything of note, I had popped into a local fabric shop in my town, aiming only for the $6 dollar a metre section (as usual, I am always on the lookout for a bargain). There were a few fabrics that I thought I could settle for, and if I hated the finished dress I reckoned at least I wouldn't have wasted too much money on it and would have learned to make a perfectly fitted dress in the process, but just as I was about to turn away and leave, out the corner of my eye I caught a black, red, and yellow print which piqued my interest.

|Get over it Don, she's thinking about pretty dresses, not you!|
|As the Betty pattern has a circle skirt, it will be much bigger and flouncier than here|
|Fabric I bought when I was back home in Glasgow over the summer|
|More fabric from Glasgow|
|Our cat, Baby, didn't move her arse quite fast enough|
|Playing about with how sleeves might look|
|Bought this fabric for my sister who is a make-up artist|
|One of the first fabrics I ever bought, which I've bought a total of 3 times now|
Fabric.com was having a majorly tempting sale this week (their sale prices are such bargains, they are basically satanic) and needing a few matching prints to go with some of my tote bag fabrics I managed to squeeze in a purchase of a long-desired print called Cat Nap Cat Dream.
A Million Dresses, Everyday Fray, and What Katie Sews who have also made dresses using this print. If I'm to be eligible for the Cat Lady Sewing Challenge though, I will have to get my finger out as it has to be finished within the month of October. Hopefully with the skills I'm learning at dressmaking class, I can make a kitty dress just in time...
