I have decided that, so far as nice projects are concerned, I would do a muslin and work on the pattern beforehand. The only problem is this: it costs money! I have been on the look out for cheap cheap fabric, and I knew I would find happiness in IKEA, because I already had. This Saturday, we went there (BF and I), because we just like browsing through their stuff... It is kind of romantic... It makes me think of 500 days of Summer.
Anyway, I have found cheap cheap cheap fabric, that is the right weight, and quite funky. It is the last roll in the clearance of fabrics section. I took everything that was leftover! 13.90m! for 13.90 euros! Almost nothing!
I might turn them inside out for trying outs, but I am fairly happy!
