The current project is a dress that’s not working out (fool me once, Cynthia Rowley, shame on you. Fool me three times….well, I think I learned my lesson). I’m re-purposing the dress skirt fabric to make a blouse, but that’s not done yet. So instead, look what happens when you get a bonus and have realized it’s easy to order things internationally:
Everything but the funk-tastic star print came from Shaukaut, a store in London that offers Liberty fabrics at a great discount–even with international shipping. They were already sold out of the “My Little Star” print, though (it’s from the spring collection) and I had decided I NEEDED it, of course, so I found that at a place in Canada.
I do plan on all this fancy fabric taking me until at least January, with a couple of skirts thrown in, so it feels a little less excessive when I think of how it will spread out. Besides, if I get a house by the end of the year I won’t be able to buy anything fancy, so I thought I’d better stock up.
