Fabric Hut Purchases
Call me crazy but here is a photo of the bag my purchases were in! New store to me so thought I should put it into my photo archives.
Here are my two fabric purchases. I really left behind some other great fabric that I would have loved to purchase. With only an hour to shop for buttons and fabric what's a Danvillegirl to do!The black and warm rose fabric is silk. It feels great. I know I will need to interface it to keep it from raveling so much. I had one idea for a jacket while in the store but traveling home, I thought about another idea. Interestingly enough, when I got home I had a new Nancy's Notions catalogue and one photo showed a more nontraditional jacket using a classic or traditional fabric for the jacket. Which is similar to my idea for this fabric.
Here is the wool fabric, made in England. This will become a more fitted jacket. I have several Simplicity patterns in mind for this at this time. Perhaps maybe another of the retro jacket I just made. Will see.
I will post photos of buttons later. Time for me to go finish getting dressed for work.
