It'd be pretty embarrassing to show you all my purchases at that Tessuti remnant sale I mentioned in Saturday's post, but here are the pretties:
- a mustard yellow net with large silver sequin pattern in the bottom half, and a dusty pink pure silk with small silver sequin pattern all over - both of great interest to my sparkle-loving daughter:
- this silvery fabric which will be used in a costume for my son if he tells me he's interested in it:
- a patterned lightweight cotton that I would like to make into a summer blouse (yes, there is enough of it - about 2 metres), and a small piece of heavily embroidered stripey cotton that my daughter insists be made into a dress (no, there's really not enough - maybe I should call all the Tessuti shops and see if they have any more scraps of this!):
- some mostly small pieces of coloured pure silk - apart from the three shown below I also got some dark blues that I didn't manage to photograph well. I would love to try my hand at colour blocking with some of these; maybe in a simple loose, A-line dress?
I also got some sensibles - good lengths of crepe, silk jersey, wool/poly and masses of something that looks like ticking but is more like sheet weight. It worked out at less than $5 per metre... is it excusable?
