Paris fabric haul!
Hihi! Yes, my computer is back from the computer doctor (who is a genius, truly!) Between a non-working computer and the start of my first full year of teaching, things have been a bit busy here. I recentely landed a second job, so I'm very happy! I've had multiple requests (I'm putting it like request but it was more like "SHOW ME YOUR FABRIC OR I WILL STALK YOU FOREVER") so here is my haul! This picture shows the haul. But of course some of you insisted on showing what was in the bags. So here it is... 3 metres of black cashmere wool. Softest stuf ever. I bought it at 'Au Bonheur des Dames' Black dotty viscose, 3 metres coupon. (Au Bonheur des Dames) Black lining, 6 metres. Tissus Reines. I was discussing which lining to pick with my mum and suddenly the salesperson who was helping me said: you can talk to me in Dutch too. He happens to be a Dutch man living in Paris. We had a great conversation on linings, sewing and fabric shops. It was great to discuss things in my mother tongue instead of French. This picture isn't a good one. It's a beautiful emerald green and here it's not good. It's 1.5 metre of cotton from Dreyfus. Green and black striped cotton, 3 metres of cotton. (Au Bonheur des Dames) Horsehair canvas, 3 metres. (Dreyfus) Pink cotton, 1.5 metres (Dreyfus) OMG Red silk sateen, 1 metres. (Tissus Reine) Royal Blue silk sateen. 3 metres coupon, Marché Saint Pierre Striped tricot. You'll be a Nettie soon... (Dreyfus) So... what's your latest fabric buy? Any tips to shop fabric in cities abroad?
