12 Days of Christmas-Day 1
Just a side note here. I have checked JoAnn fabrics MANY times for taffeta of this quality, and whenever I do find it, their prices are outrageous, even with their generous coupons. The normal price per yard for the pintuck taffeta, for instance, runs about $15-25. Thus, if you have a skirt that takes over 3 yards of fabric, which these DO, the price JUST for the fabric could be upwards of $75. Yikes. Even if you have a dang 40% off coupon, the price will still run you around $30..once again, just to get fabric that you haven't even sewn into anything. Bleh.
It's that whole idea of paying professionals to do something because they're set up to do it as a business, they're faster than you, seeing as they do it all day every day, and they have all the machinery and get the raw materials wholesale. Goodness knows I would never attempt to sew my own pair of jeans. Anyhow, let ME be your seamstress. I like it, I love picking out fabrics, and I thoroughly enjoy the creative process and end result.
