As I mentioned before in my previous post – my day long shopping trip in Vancouver with my sister has ended – very successfully! After 1.5 hours on the ferry to Vancouver, lots of driving from here to there and lots and lots of fondling of fabric, I can happily show you my treasures!
First off, a beautiful rich brown for some dress pants for the office perhaps?
(67% polyester, 30% rayon, 3% spandex)
This royal blue could be sewed up into some summer pants, next summer I mean!
(67% rayon, 29% polyester, 4% spandex)
This one is a Tensel Denim – which is explained here. I have enough for a full skirted jean dress.
(60% cotton, 40% tensel)
This fabric I could just DIE for! Again I have enough for a full skirted dress.
We found this pinkish stiff fabric in the bargain section – hopefully I can make a short jacket out of it.
I think it had 80% silk on the smudged label. It feels like silk.
The minute we saw this fabric we both said “I’m not a purple person”. But it felt so fine, we bought it.
It would make a beautiful skirt and would probably match the pinkish silk jacket perfectly!
(65% polyester, 32% rayon, 3% spandex)
Well those purchases should keep me busy for the next year (ya, right!). Let me leave you with a couple of photos of the view I enjoyed from the ferry coming home.
Imagine… 1.5 hours each way of this… just beautiful!
For the first time, ever since I started taking the ferry as a child, the Captain announced that there was a pod of Killer Whales off the starboard side. Suddenly every window on the starboard side was full of passengers. I managed to get a peek, but no photos – sorry! It was quite a sight!
Oh yes, I noticed Fabricana carries Sewaholic patterns, and some Jalie patterns too, if anyone prefers shopping in person to shopping on line.
Well I should go, it’s getting late, Happy Sewing to you!
