Well I’m back from the PR Weekend in Philly. I had alot of drama in the morning but by the time I got there. I had a great time!!! I really enjoyed meeting all of my fellow bloggers. The museum exhibit and special presentation was almost as fun as the day of fabric shopping. I left my phone in the car at the train station so I couldnt get the pictures I wanted. I just took some pictures of the fabric purchases. Besides fabric I bought a Curve Square ruler and two buckle kits for belts.
I love all three of these prints. I always love black and white. I got enough of it about 5 yards I think. I want to make a sheath dress maybe and a pencil skirt. The other two prints I am thinking to do the Burdastyle for one of them. I got all three prints for $3 a yard. The pink and orange is actually a panel print and I think with the right placement I can add the white and come up with an interesting design.
Next we have these Knits. I love the purple and pink but they only have little over 1 yard so I’m thinking of a cute cowl top and the other I am not sure. These were bought on fabric row, the 1 yard print was $2.50 and the other was $4 a yard. I think.
These were bought at Jomar’s which was great!! I would love to go back to Philly just to fabric shop. They are all knits but the greyish blue is lycra jersey and the other two are cotton or rayon knits.
Lastly, I got this fabulous silk from London Textiles. I am not sure what I am going to make with it. I have been toying with the idea of V1160 but am not sure if there is enough weight to the pattern or if I even bought enough! LOL!!
I met a very nice (Bernice) person who lives not too far from me (40 min). Maybe we can hang out and fabric shop. All in all it was nice to be around others who are just as obsessed about sewing and sewing related things as I am.
Now an update on the Sewing Room:
I am about 75% there. I just ordered my gravity feed iron and it arrived today!!! The only other purchase I will be making right now is another book case. I am thinking about buying this
