My New Pretties

I had some time in Birmingham today, as other half had a lunch meeting, so I cadged a lift.

I fell into the Fancy Silk Store. Oops

I bought one metre of this lovely velvety soft, suede textured on both sides, slightly stretchy fabric. I imagine some sort of polyesterish fabric. No idea what I'll do with it.

I also bought some 3 metres of pink cotton (polycotton?) fabric that might make a pretty summer dress or skirt or blouse. It's bordered along both edges though. Will have to give its use some thought.

The cotton is a lovely colour, I had some similar stuff in black which was being sold off v cheap - the only reason I bought it, I don't do black as a general rule - and attempted to make a skirt with it.....it was the very devil to sew. Good luck with it  :)
