Yes, I succumbed. I purchased fabric from the Pyramid of Savings Sale at Fabric Mart. But see it was like this...I was given Christmas money by my coworker this week with the instructions to buy fabric with it. Now I couldn't NOT do what they asked, right? So I succumbed. I bought 10 yards of fabric. But I was good, I didn't spend ALL of the gift there...probably because the fabric closet is groaning from the amount of fabric that is in it and even I can't really justify buying more...*sigh*
So you wanna see what I got...says the fabricaholic!
Black Faux Leather Patchwork look is polyurethane with a soft thin nylon knit backing. It is a light medium weight, with a textured soft hand, and medium cone drape. It could be used for skirts, dresses, skinny pants, light jackets, vests, and even headbands and purses.
It is 54" wide and I got 3 yards of it. Have an idea of what I want to use it for but I'm not sure...
This orange rust 60% wool 40% rayon is a boucle. It is medium weight, has a textured hand, and a medium cone drape. It would be great for coats, blazers, and vests. It would also make a fabulous dress/jumper and jacket combination set.
I was very impressed with this out of the box and wished I had bought more colors...until I opened the fabric closet door! *LOL*
This magenta 100% worsted wool suiting is sectioned by thin black lines forming a windowpane look. It is lightweight, has a smooth hand, and gentle medium cone drape. Use this fabric to make a suit, skirt, vest, jacket, or dress. It is 58" wide and I bought 5 yards of it to make sure that I had enough to match the plaid.
This piece will be used for a dress/jacket combo...a new jacket pattern that will be one of my 12 jackets for 2011.
That is the only sewing related thing that I've done this week. I've worked late every night because my boss is on vacation next week and we had to get sooooo much done. Hopefully tomorrow I will spend most of my day making a couple of AG doll clothes ~ I never made it to the store. And I have to get them made, otherwise my niece won't have a Christmas present, and that just won't do! *LOL*
I will be making a trip into the garment district next week to pick up some supplies (piping/buttons, etc.) because I will have a brief 5 day break and of course, I want to sew! The year end review will show up next week...so stay tuned...
...and as always, more later!
