Okay, there were some knits purchased. Three knits, to be exact. This patterned cotton jersey: and these two ponte romas:
The one on the left, while appearing red here, is actually a lovely pumpkin shade, and something that I had actually went there intending to buy. While she was cutting it for me, the salesperson raved about the fabric, and how nice it was to sew, how well it washed, and that it was her favourite of the moment. Well to me, word of mouth is the best sales tool, so I went back and got this mustard shade as well. Really, at 50% off, each cardigan will cost about $30 for a wonderfully heavy ponte knit. The drape on this is incredible, and I can't wait to sew with it.
There were patterns bought - these two for some simple tops (one a little summery, but hey, I plan on a Florida trip this winter, so...)
Plus another pattern that was bought specifically with the following fabrics in mind:
Both of these are suiting weight, again, both were 50% off, and impossible to resist.This camel coloured one is fleece weight, and soooooo soft. It's definitely going to make a great fall jacket - although I may go coat length on this - I bought enough fabric.This last one is labelled "mixed fibres", but I can feel some wool, and I think some silk, as well as some polyester for strength. Since it's going to be a jacket, I'm not worried about washing it - I will probably get it cleaned professionally, as I do most of my outerwear, Surprise, surprise, it has a border treatment - and eyelet embroidery that's about 8 inches high. I'm making the simple straight edged jacket, and yes, I've already started it. I only have the sleeves to add, so this should wrap up this weekend. Me, impatient? Well, maybe a little...
And finally, some cotton flannels for pajama pants for my son. From left to right, a baseball print, an I Love Canada print, red skull and cross bones, and piles of blue skulls. What can I say, he's 11, skulls are big thing.
