Thank you, readers, for all the lovely comments on my Owl sweater.
I checked my blogroll this morning and A Sewn Wardrobe blogged about the $1.95 sale at fabric.com on The Vera Lavendar Collection. I had eyeballed a few of those fabrics awhile back and almost bought a piece when it was on sale, but I am so happy I waited. This morning I went fabric crazy shopping, but not fabric crazy spending. I purchased $50.71 for $38.05. Fabric.com gives free shipping with a $35 purchase and I had a coupon code for 20% off. There are plenty of coupon codes for fabric.com on retailmenot.com. Unfortunately I had already used the 30% off coupon. Readers, I feel like I stole those fabrics. I don't have any idea what I want to make out of most of them, but it will be fun planning. There was on fabric that was low on yardage when I ordered, so I hope I get them all. Here is what I bought:
1. Designer Techno Taffeta in Emerald and Navy (2.5 yards each):
I plan to make S2497 out of one of these and maybe S2724 out of the other.
3. Wool Blend Tweed Boucle Suiting Teal (3 yards).
I am thinking I will make a cute jacket out of this in a Chanel vibe. I am hoping this fabric is more green as it appears online, but if not it is still pretty.
5. Wool Blend Boucle Suiting Cobalt Multi (3 yards). Jacket, skirt?
6. Polyester Boucle Suiting Navy (3 Yards):
I am taken with what looks like black threads running through this fabric. I love navy and black together.
7. Wool Blend Boucle Suiting Ivory (3 yards):
I am thinking a Chanel-ish jacket with black trim.
8. Stretch Luxe Jersey Knit Cream (3 yards):
I am thinking of a gorgeous wrap dress out of this a la Erica. I tried to link directly to her post on this, but I couldn't. She made Vogue 1087 out of some cream fabric that is gorgeous.
9. Printed Brocade Floral Amber (3 yards):
I have had my eye on this fabric for awhile. I plan to use it to knock off this lovely dress that used to be on Nordstrom's website:
I think this is such a cute look with the cardigan.
If I counted correctly, that is 26 yards of designer fabric for $38!!! Until next time.
