In September I shared some new online fabric resources for National Sewing Month. There were several new to me online fabric sites and I have spent time pursuing their sites then purchasing from them. So I thought I would show some of the new pieces that have come to visit Casa de Sewing Fanatico.
Now I know I work in the midst of the NYC Garment District and I do purchase local too. However, for many of you visiting the District is a special trip, but you can sit at home and thumb through online internet sites. Truthfully, I sit at home and thumb through internet sites too!
So here are a few purchases I've made recently especially after the amazing Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales:
LaFinch Fabrics ~
A Liverpool knit (used in the Rivermont Dress, a dotted chambray for a shirt
and a polyester crepe for a bow-tie blouse)
Blackbird Fabrics ~
A floral rayon poplin and a dark floral sweaterknit
Smugglers Daughter ~
A dark denim cause I'm always buying denim now!
District Fabrics ~
Love the packaging from District Fabric
An embroidered velvet
I have to admit to finding this one on Instagram and purchasing it by calling the store. They were so helpful and sent it out quickly! I highly recommend following their Instagram account and seeing their lovelies.
A rayon printed twill
I also bought a few pieces of fabric from Stylemaker Fabrics ~
and 5 yards of white cotton interlock from Organic Cotton Plus. The Stylemaker Fabrics and the cotton interlock were purchased during the Black Friday sale.
There have been a few purchases from Chic Fabrics and Metro Textiles, in the Garment District too, but I've officially made my last fabric purchases for 2017. It's time to stop gathering and to start sewing. I don't know about you but at the beginning of every season, I need to do a gathering or a hunt of fabric for that season. I need to add a few new pieces to the collection to get the creative juices flowing. These pieces may or not be used during this winter season but they do encourage my sewing mojo and inspire me to start new sewing adventures.
So how about you? Do you need fabric to kickstart your sewing mojo? Or do you have a lean fabric collection? Maybe you're like me and believe that you should own as much fabric as you are capable of storing? Finally, did you indulge in the Black Friday sales? I know different strokes for different folks but as I said at the beginning of this post I love fabric and it makes me happy!
I may have another outfit post before the Christmas Break but I'm not sure. I am sewing but due to the holidays and everything going on, I may not have a photographer until the New Year.
As I mentioned above, I will be discussing my Top 5's in another post soon and maybe a wrap-up post of this year and my goals for next year.
...as always more later!
