This was an impulse buy – it was only $8 in the remnant pile for a 90cm piece and I picked it out while the girl was adding up my order! It is a black viscose georgette with yellow circles which I hope to squeeze a top out of. My son loves it – he said it reminded him of a bee – mmm, now I have my doubts!
The orange is a fine Italian cotton twill that I will make into a summer skirt. It is a gorgeous quality, and was $18/m:

I also picked up this tweedy stuff that I will make into a Chanel-style jacket – I’ve always wanted one to wear with jeans! I was also eyeing this fabric up last time I visited, but it was $32/m and had no wool content. It is actually acrylic/polyester which I’d normally avoid for a jacket, but this is loosely woven so is acceptable to me. Plus I love the camel and pink colours woven throughout.
I’ve saved the best for last – a textured wool in a cute pink that just shouts Jackie Onassis! I think I will be making a little retro jacket out of this – something to brighten up jeans or a basic black outfit. I can’t remember whether it was $24 or $32/m, but it doesn’t matter – I would have bought it regardless!
So that is the result of my little splurge – I’m happy now!
But there was that yellow and white floral linen that I thought would make a great vintage sundress…..
