Fabric Shopping 3

Hello peeps,

I hope you are all enjoying a lazy Sunday morning - I am currently writing this laid in bed before I get my glad rags on and go for a Michelin started lunch - cannot wait!!

Anyway I know I said I was going to try hold off of anymore fabric shopping trips until my stash was smaller, well, I changed my mind! An early finish from work on Friday and an unexpected wage rise (only small but allowed me to justify spending!) Saw me getting the tube to Walthamstow and seeing what I could find. I tried to be very strict and only bought things I'd definitly wear as a top and bought 1.5m of each.

Powder blue viscose £3/m
I have seen this print in a shop somewhere but not sure where...more viscose £2.20/m

I have bought this before and made a mess of it as clemency skirt but I love it so when saw it again I couldn't resist _ £2.20/m

This is my total bargain of the day, a poly at 50p/m !! Got 2m of this as not as wide but I really love it

Another viscose £1.75/m

Ooops - forgot to add this in my post - this is a soft turquoise viscose again - £2.20/m

I am so happy with my purchases - now to crack on with my top pattern fitting so I can use these pretty fabrics!

The next time I go fabric shopping I will force myself to only buy some complimentary plain fabrics which will allow me to do some colour blocking and use up scraps, we,'ll that's the plan anyway...

UPDATE - I have added the other fabric I bought and updated the Fabric Stash page - it is getting pretty long now!

Enjoy the long weekend lovelies

  1. Lovely fabrics! I love all your choices ... I have the third one down (navy tile print) which I also bought on a shopping trip to Walthamstow. I love the blue floral print and the last one. Enjoy your michelin starred lunch - we're BBQing today.

    1. Thanks Fiona, maybe I haven't seen it in a shop maybe I have seen it on your blog. The bottom one has washed like a dream in its pre-wash, no wrinkles, I am just hoping that doesn't mean it won't press well! I would love a BBQ but with no outside space I have been BBQ free this year :( lunch was really yum though thank you!

  2. lovely choices, especially the top one with the blue polka dots! :)

    1. Thank you, they had it in orange and green too but was a bit bright for my wardrobe!
