I am lucky enough to live near enough to Downtown LA and the garment district. Which is an incredible area to buy fabric with dozens of shops and sellers with a huge variety of fabrics sold by the yard at often whole sale prices.
I try to go no more then a hand full of times a year to keep my fabric hoarding to the bare min of what I need to sew right now. And I try to go when I have more then one thing on my list.
We went on saturday and while the trip was mainly to get fabric for a big upcoming project of Michaels, I did get quite a few things for some of my own upcoming projects.
The large black is cotton velvet for something renaissance and as a fabric staple. The smaller blue is wool for an upcoming HSF challenge.
The purple and gold will be for a bustle dress or two :)
This light blue has a future as a twenties dress:
And the shear cotton is going to be a chemise d'la reine at some point when I get around to it :)
