In this weeks post I will be introducing my fabric choice to you all. Drum roll please...
I found this 'autumny' cotton during a fabric shopping trip last weekend when Jamie and I spent a night in Canberra. The shop was called Addicted to Fabric, and supplied the typical amount of quilting and dressmaking fabric to local sewers. Most of the fabric I had seen in the chain stores in the city, but their book collection was pretty good. I was able to flip through a number of sewing books I had not seen before (although they were full price so I didn't buy any).
Like I said, most of the fabric was the standard fabrics available in most fabric stores in Australia. It does make me wonder if Australia just doesn't import enough variety into the country, if the demand just isn't there, or if the importers themselves don't have much of a variety of taste?
Anyhow, I was lucky to find a fabric that was a bit different to the rest, 100% cotton, and on sale!
Don't forget to check in with the other girls and see how they are doing,
Oh, and remember the fabric I purchased for the dress and skirt pattern on Saturday... I have already sewn up both patterns! Can't wait to show you all - the dress is fab!
