I was extremely restrained. I think at some point I might consider making a shopping list and going up to buy a wardrobe’s worth of material… but here we are.
Here is the stretch velvet. It’s not the most exciting fabric, since it’s a polyester… and we all know how I feel about artificial fabrics… but hey. It was ***cheap*** and it’s beautiful and soft. I say “elegant robe”. If I lined it in a cotton, it might be pretty nice. Maybe I won’t make something for me, but will make something for BFF. She loves this stuff.
I took just the tiniest sliver of the picture of the cherry red poly charmeuse, because it photographed into eye-searing brightness. You get the idea.
At $2.50 per pound, these can live in my stash until they find a purpose.
Now this, this is silk. Can you tell, even from my less-than-wonderful photos? I think you might just…. I seriously could move into that store and never come out. Ever. They have a row of bolts, floor to ceiling in different shades of the rainbow. That’s not to speak of the miles of brocade, or the lace or… all stuffed into a shop the size of my dining room. Yeah. Naughty.
Weft is not interesting to photograph, so no pix. However, for my records, I bought T-411GG weft, which is just perfect for interfacing dresses. Lovely LOVELY drape. Speaking of stores I could move into. 😉
