I recently purchased this suitcase at a local shop. I thought it might hold patterns (and perhaps someday it may), but currently it holds fabric. Anything earmarked for a specific project that is on the short list. Currently that is fabric for 4 tops, a Jamie dress and a sunhat. I happily got to take out some for my Rte 66 skirt.
I finished my Savannah Cami and have started sewing a Rte 66 view B in black/grey/white. A quick tip: If your fabric is one directional and 42″ instead of 45″ for a three fabric skirt View B you will need 2 1/8 yds of fabric rather than 1 7/8 yds of fabric, which I discovered when I was cutting my skirt out and found that having purchased 2 yds of a one directional was 4″ short because of the fabric also being just a little narrower. So I had to change to the view A skirt which is 10″ shorter.
Here’s hoping that there are no more surprises.
