I got some SWEET fabric yesterday with my G Street Fabrics livingsocial deal!!
These were on the "please buy me" remnants table:
(Please excuse the poor quality of most of the following photographs. Sigh.)
|hefty green tweed|
|impossible to photograph, lightweight denimy something|
|denimy closeup with underside|
|difficult to photograph, white shiny dotted mystery fabric|
|satiny on one side, cottony on the other|
|Dots! black + pink on creme -- from the silk remnants bin|
After finding these, I was innocently walking past the cottons, minding my own business and this pima cotton sateen started calling to me. I was essentially defenseless against its charms.
I couldn't get a good photo of it (who, me?), but it does perfectly match the pink dots in the Milly silk.
|smooth, buttery, lightweight pima cotton sateen|
I also picked up some zippers and covered button kits, which have both been on my list for a while.
I'm planning a top of some sort for the pink cotton, a skirt or maybe a dress for the Milly silk (I'm chicken to put huge 3" spots on my top half), a blouse for the satiny dotted white fabric [UPDATE: I just learned this is likely flannel-backed satin, best for lining jackets and making PJs...this may change my plans], a Ginger skirt for the denimy stuff, and a pencil skirt for the green tweed.
Who knows when these plans will actually materialize into finished (or even in-progress) projects, but, you know, I'm just documenting that I shopped with a little bit of a plan, instead of going willy-nilly as I'm inclined to do upon setting foot in a fabric store.
That concludes this breaking news update. Stay tuned for my scheduled Part II estate sale finds post tomorrow!
