Latest fabric acquisitions
After going through my knit fabric collection to make test garments last week, I found it somewhat lacking in appropriate knits for the season. I had seen some knits on several sites. I obsessed over a couple at EOS and know if I don’t order quickly sometimes, others beat me to the purchase.
I ordered two knits from EOS. One is a Ponte knit called Bittersweet; it is somewhat what I would call a pumpkin color.
The other knit is an ITY knit in a black, charcoal and cream floral print.
The next four knits are from Vogue Fabrics. Two are from the current Winter 2012 Fabric Swatch and two were in the prior swatch. The two floral fabrics are double knit; the rust colored fabric is a knit crepe and the steel gray is a bamboo knit. I have yet to try bamboo knit but understand that it does shrink a lot.
