Fabric Shopping


Just a few quick photos to share some of the bounty of Tuesday's trip to New York: leather from Mood, cotton and silk from Paron's and black diamond-weave wool from Kashi (overexposed so you can see the texture).



There were a few other scores - the floral knit that he talked me into by saying I was the first woman to see the fabric since he'd just opened the package, the olive linen - but those aren't within reach of camera and so will be shared later.

I'm looking forward to tackling the leather. I went through all my back issues of BWOF with Connie when she was down and decided - with her able assistance - which jacket will be the next leather. The pattern I chose looks nothing like a leather jacket at this point, but it will. I hope.

Just can't stay off the crack, can ya?! Good score there, Karen. I'm following in your footsteps next week.
