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:

Liberty of London baby cord in “Mauverina” (love that name)

Liberty Tana lawn in “Strawberry Thief” and “Poppy and Honesty”

And my favorites, “My Little Star” and “Helland” (tiny viking ships for the win!)

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.
