Right now I have a really good turnover for fabric. This fishtail was sewn within one month after fabric shopping! I used a self-drafted pattern after the (German) instruction on Natron und Soda. I use this for every fishtail and love how simple and yet pretty it is!
I was lazy and the fabric very stretchy, so I added a simple elastic for the waist. This also means it fits with corset as well as without... ;)
As the fabric was a little on the short side, I added a bit of lace around the hem. And another round a little higher, just because I could and had more matching lace!
How long do you take to turn the pretty fabrics you bought into garments or accessoirs? Do you buy fabrics for projects or do you store them until the inspiration hits?
