Whilst in New York I did a bit of fabric shopping. Here are my finds:
- 2 tie silks.
and my Dad will get a tie out of this for Christmas.
- 2 silks
along with this pattern for...drumroll....me!
This will be my first sewing project for myself. My friend Natalie assisted in the selection of the material, and I have to say she did quite a fabulous job. The pink silk matches the flowers in the print perfectly. So eventually I will have a nice print skirt and solid top for myself. I'm rather excited about this prospect.
- a fun polka dot print (not sure what the material is, perhaps rayon?)
I don't know what I'm going to do with it just yet, but I'm sure I'll figure out something.
- and finally this cotton print for my nieces.
I really debated on this one. I fell in love with it in the store, but it's so summery and with winter coming I knew I'd need to wait to make anything out of it until at least next spring to be sure that it will fit them (since they're growing like weeds). But I went ahead and bought it and I have to say I'm quite satisfied that I did. It's probably my favorite of all my purchases from New York. Now I have quite a queue built up. I guess I better get busy! :)
