So, Ben and I went to l'epicerie today for lunch (sans les enfants). It is hands down my favourite place in Strasbourg. If in Strasbourg. GO!!la droguerie for one last shop before we leave on Friday. I had on my mind the need to find some fabric for the Laurel which is top of my list for April sewing next week (post jet lag recovery) when I'm still off work with the kids for the last week of school holidays.
I bought some (surprise!?) Liberty (Mawstons Meadow) with some corduroy and trim. I love a bib in a dress (see the two sugar tees I've made) so I think that I might make the Laurel version with the bib and maybe this fabric as the feature. It doesn't look so much in the photo but the orange really stands out and is quite fluoro.
I also bought this horsey Hermes -esque trim, just because. Don't worry, I have no plans for it yet......It won't be part of the Laurel, at least I don't think so...Bensimon. It has some great sparkly thread through it which isn't captured in this photo but I really want a blouse underneath. I'd like to try the Archer, which I bought before leaving Australia...but am a bit scared. So maybe I think I'll go to my old faithful W from Les Couleurs Francaise which I've made quite a few times. I'm thinking this time in a chambray... although will have to buy this fabric at A2F when I return.
