today was MAJOR fabric shopping day in preparation for the dotty bags production....
spent the morning drafting pattern pieces
afternoon shopping for fabrics - i did not expect to end up with so much fabric!!!
and it was soooo heavy that i had to get a cab to lug it all back home. here's a sneak peek of the fabric bought...expect some pastel dotty bags coming up!
I also managed to get this fabric at a bargain price, $3 for a couple of yards!
isn't it so ugly it's adorable?? it was going at a bargain 'cos it's got some brown stains on it plus it was also the last bit left....the fabric is now sitting in a tub of washing powder and colour bleach to rid it of its nasty stains. i think this will either be a tunic or dress! juliana, i guess your theory about deserving a discount for buying the last piece is applicable in this case. however, i did not tell the shopowner that since i was a "mei-nu" and he was a "shuai-ge" i should get a discount!!
amidst the crazed fabric buying spree, i managed to detour for another favourite activity...shopping!!! i'm expecting this to be a favourite shopping haunt from now on...managed to snag a pair of 3/4 pants for $19! for those who are not aware, this fashion is a bargain type store with racks and racks stuffed full of cheap clothes. you have to dig around to find good stuff, but who doesn't love a bargain?
