Firstly some jersey stripe and lace trim ... I've been obsessed about making a stripey boat top with a lace inset ever since I saw a Claudie Pierlot top. This trim isn't wide enough unfortunately so will need to keep my eyes open for the perfect lace. Ben is wondering what on earth I'm thinking, but I'm going to persist with this idea.
I also bought some gold and some perforated 'leatherette'. Only 25cms of each.. I thought I'd try out little pouches or something... if I can ever learn to insert a zipper properly. I made myself a little phone pouch out of the gold with pink stitching but it is so lo-fi I can't even post it!!
I also bought this fabric on a whim. I think was called 'risque brocade'!!!!! I'm not sure how risque it is. I'd say not at all frankly! This is it hanging on the line.. I think it's going to make a great skirt so have sent away for a pattern this afternoon. Stay tuned. I have a vision for it! At $40/metre the sales assistant nearly fainted when she rang it up as there aren't many fabrics that are in that range at Spottys. Trust me to find it.
Suzy bought some excellent stretch snake skin print fabric and has already whipped up a very rock cowl neck top with it!!
My normal fabric store is having a sale on this coming weekend, so lucky there is a payday between now and then!
