Here are my purchases for the day, the first will seem like the least interesting, but its actually what I set out to buy today. It's some black wool to make myself a winter cape. It's pretty much perfect for what I wanted and only $5 for a metre and some off cuts.
Soon as I saw this cheesy New Zealand themed fabric I knew I couldn't leave it behind! It's kind of like a tourism postcard from the 1950s in fabric form. Rich and I have a trip booked to Singapore/Malaysia/Indonesia in June/July - hopefully I can turn this into a dress before then.
Next up is some very sweet floral cotton, its another fabric I thought would be useful to make a dress or possibly even a maxi skirt for our trip. Mostly I just thought it was very cute.
The photo totally does not do this fabric justice - GOLD LUREX! $2 FOR TWO METRES! As soon as I showed this to Kat she said "wow that is so you!" and it totally is - sparkles forever. I'm going to see if I can make a wrap dress from this fabric. Gold Lurex is totally office appropriate right?
