I had a few hours of kid free time this week so I decided to take one last trip to the garment district before the baby comes. I am guessing that it will be at least a couple of months before I can go again, so I was anxious to get a few things.
I only bought two things, but I am pretty happy with my buys. First of all I bought this clearance fabric at Paron’s Fabrics. Unfortunately it is a polyester blend, but I loved the pattern so much and the price (at $6 a yard) was too hard to pass up. It is going to turn into a button down blouse (McCalls 6436) for sure.
I also bought this silk crepe de chine in this awesome coral, orange red hue at Chic fabrics. I love the drape and the structure of this silk. It think it’s going to sew up really nicely. I do have some plans for this fabric, but I am going to let it remain a mystery for the time being.
I have also been doing some knitting lately. It is really cold right now in NYC so I don’t feel bad at all that I am spending time and money on a new cowl for myself. This is going to be another gaptastic cowl like the one I made for my sister for Christmas, but his time in a mustard like color for me.
