Seriously peoples if you're not following Mood Fabrics on Instagram, you are missing out! They posted this the other day...
...and with some encouragement from my friend, Elizabeth, I hopped on the A train in the pouring rain to go claim some for myself. It's a wool double knit that has a medium to heavy weight hand. It's not coat weight as in outerwear but it is definitely jacket weight and it comes in the chartreuse pictured as well as the purple I purchased. Although not so heavy that you can't make a winter dress with it...which is part of my intention! C'mon you knew I was making a dress...when ain't I making a dress! *LOL*
Anyway this fabric just kicked my next couple of projects down a notch. It will be my September Mood Project (thereby not breaking the can't buy fabric until 2014 rule) and since I've sketched a pretty involved outfit for it, I will start working on this sooner rather than later. It definitely will be a part of my sewcation!
But in full disclosure, this isn't the only piece I've purchased from Mood after seeing it on Instagram. Y'all know I love me some pleather and leather is trending hot for Fall 2013. It is EVERYWHERE! So after seeing this on Instagram...
I bought a 1/2 yard when I purchased my menswear fabric last month. Just to let you know, this is already cut out and waiting to be sewn. Just.need.some.time!
I know what you're going to ask next. Don't they show fabrics on Instagram that are only in the NYC store? Yes, sometimes and sometimes things are available online too. It's noted in the comments when it's in the store or when it's online. If it's only in the store, ask, they tell you who to call and what department. So see it's win win! You can come in, call in or surf in but you CAN purchase the Instagram fabric.
So what are you waiting for? Pull out those android phones, iPhones, and iPads and install the Instagram app...it's free and it's fun! Oh and I'm "diaryofasewingfanatic" on Instagram! See you there!
...as always more later!
p.s. Only four more work days to sewcation! *doing the Snoopy happy dance!*
