These fabrics were so luxurious, I contemplated wrapping them all around me...and wearing them just like that. You know you've had the same thought when you buy some fantastic fabric. Don't deny it.
My SWAP 2010 theme is a fall-based Chanel wardrobe. Pink silks, pink and white knits for tops. A black and pink boucle for the jacket. Denim, black satin-back twill and grey wool stretch trousers. Black satin-back twill skirt.
I'm not sure why I chose satin-back twill. I've never used it before but it just sounded nice. I might use the wrong (dull) side for the slacks and the shiny (right) side for the skirt.
No sewing for 2 weeks now. I'm overloaded beyond words at work so I've been bringing work home. YUCK! The parents are finally coming to visit in TN so I've also been doing my spring cleaning...in the fall.
On a side note, has anyone else shopped from Denver Fabrics? I have only once before and was relatively pleased. The fabrics were great but...
- packaged in a box without being wrapped in a bag or something to protect the fabric
- took 2+ weeks just to process my order
- no labels on any of the fabric (this is really just me nit-picking a bit)
