but I bought some anyway.
Which really wasn't necessary because my Very Special Houseguest will be here soon and there will be some retail therapy occurring this very weekend.
But I couldn't wait. I walked down to Karlin's on 8th Street at lunchtime with Andrea, and we both indulged a bit.
I indulged a bit more, but I'm beginning to think about fall sewing, and Karlin's new supplier (the same one who sells the fabric crack to Jomar) is obviously also thinking about fall.
Of the 4 fabrics above, 2 are summer and 2 are fall: from the left, a dark olive pinstripe bottomweight with a little stretch (it's a really good green, it just photographs like crap); orange, brown and white plaid stretch woven - a 2.5 yard remnant for $5; 4 yards of olive green herringbone silk/wool/rayon blend with tweedy flecks; and a large print floral stretch woven that is destined to be another version of the BWOF 2/08 #113 sundress.
Apparently that shade of green is going to be big this fall for me. Like it isn't every year.
