|So I could make the gown in Bone, Brick, or Chocolate, for $70.|
The second store had even less selection, but I did end up finding one of the 5-piece window sets that caught my eye the first time I went window shopping. I absolutely love this deep red and gold plaid:
|So I bought one.|
Each panel is only 28" wide, which means that I would need twice as many sets as I thought, and this Meijer only had one. Boo.
They did have four sets of the same plaid in a pretty tan color, but that one didn't excite me as much. And now I'm not sure what to do with this one. It's not very 18th Century, otherwise I'd make a caraco jacket or something. And the pattern is much too large to be suitable for a doll gown.
I think the moral of this story is that I need to stop buying curtains. :p
