Oooh, new fabric :D

Yesterday a lovely friend took me to a new (to me) fabric shop… Fabrics Galore in Clapham, London. It was well worth a visit!! I don’t have anywhere for nice dress fabrics around me, so with a couple of dress patterns calling to me, this was just what I needed. They have a fantastic selection of home dec, dress fabrics, gorgeous linens, ohhh the wool blends, quilting cotton….  I came home with a beautiful little pile of gorgeousness.

The first pattern on my list is Dress B here and for this I went for a deep ocean blue linen/cotton blend, with gorgeous Alexander Henry butterflies for the contrasts. I am really into chartreuse right now, especially with blue/turquoise. Unfortunately it doesn’t suit me so I have to go for accents 

And I got some cottons for a skirt at some point.

And this heavenly Liberty cotton lawn for a summer skirt, photos do not do it justice, it’s such an unusual print and the colours are just me right now.

I am having a major departure from my usual plum/brown/hot pink! I blame that photo of the sky and tree branches in my last post…
