Give this video a watch to see the beautiful fabrics I picked up whilst on holiday in California and to hear what I have planned for them.
Have a look at my California Vlog if you want to see all the footage of my fabric shopping in Britex, Mood, The Fabric Store and the LA Fashion District.
Fabrics I bought:
The Fabric Store
Black & orange stretch fabric
Cotton, lycra and polyester blend
$12 per yard (I bought 1 yard)
To make: a stretchy, cosy long-sleeved top that can be dressed up and down. Potentially the Tilly and the Buttons Coco Top but with a higher neckline so that I can wear a long-sleeved top underneath.
Navy blue stretch cotton
90% cotton, 10% lycra
$12 per yard (I bought 2.25 yards)
To make: The Tilly and the Buttons Etta Dress.
The LA Fashion District – New Fabric Corner
Some kind of drapey, sheer polyester fabric.
$3 per yard (I bought 1 yard)
To make: potentially a True Bias Ogden Cami, or some kind of floaty summer top. Pattern suggestions are welcome!
