Sandra Betzina Week continued again & again

I had thought I could resist purchasing fabrics on our shopping day. Ha ha. How silly of me. I have been to these stores many times since I live within range. But I guess the 25% discount given as part of our little group was just too much for me to resist. Here are my purchases from Britex in SF, Stone Mountain & Daughter in Berkeley, Thai Silks in Los Altos, and Aida Dalati Atelier in Menlo Park.

Hard to see these but if you click on the photo they get bigger. In the top photo dark red cotton with ragged embroidery, Japanese cotton with stylized hydrangeas clusters and sage tencel to match. Middle photo has knits: top is wool jersey, then lacy on mesh, rayon jersey stripe and on the bottom a fur animal print. On the bottom silks: brown with copper medallions (sort of organza) with brown silk crepe to go with, chiffon large dots, and finally chiffon sage dots on black with dupioni and organza to go under it. I have vague ideas of what to do with these wonderful fabrics. The chiffon sage dots will be a skirt. The fur animal print will probably be a Vintage Vogue jacket. The rayon jersey - a top, the dark red cotton - a casual jacket.

I love your fabric choices. I've given up on resisting the temptation to purchase fabric and patterns. Shopping for fabric is one of the things that I love to do. Happy sewing, Cennetta
