The fabric with no name...!

This fabulous new fabric came through the door today, but I have no idea what to call it!!  It's a black thick knit, but not a sweatshirting. It has a great waffle pattern and a bit of stretch.  It's made up of 82% Polyester, 16% Rayon & 2% Spandex (my favorite word!), 140 cm wide and £20 per m.

Most people would say great for jackets, but I'm thinking shift dress, skirt...!

Home Sewing

Well, I finally got round to using the buttonhole foot on my Bernina!  Definitely worth the wait, even if it is just an alteration!  At least I can wear my pinafore, without the risk of it falling down!  
Hmmm, now what else needs a buttonhole....?!
