This time I arrived about 2 hours before doors opened – and was still quite far back. The rain and snow fell a little, but we had dressed warmly and brought folding chairs so we were ok…
From top to bottom:
- approximately 4 meters of heavyweight navy linen (8$)
- a herringbone twill that is grey and black, almost 5 meters (6$) (I need to do a fibre test, but I am hoping it’s wool)
- plum grey wool, about 3 meters (3$)
- seafoam green linen, about 3 meters ($3)
- periwinkle blue linen, about 4 meters ($4)
From left to right:
- A roll (approximately 7 meters) of leaf-green cotton velveteen ($10)
- A roll (approximately 7 meters) of rustic jacket-weight blue wool with grey flecks ($10)
- A bolt of heavy-weight white linen, approximately 6 meters ($5)
- A bolt of dark navy wool suiting with a wide grey pinstripe, about 5 meters ($5) – this is super soft, drapey wool that I can’t wait to work with.
Left column top to bottom:
- Burgundy duchess satin, approximately 4 meters ($8)
- Grey figured poly velvet, approximately 2 meters ($4)
- Blue shot with gold fabric, approximately 2 meters ($4) I had hoped this was silk, but a burn test proves it isn’t.
Right column, top to bottom:
- Black wool suiting, approximately 4 meters ($8)
- Black dupioni silk, approximately 3 meters ($6)
- Navy/black metallic knit, approximately 2 meters ($4)
… and in the middle, a pretty fur collar. While I don’t normally work with real fur, I don’t mind if it’s second-hand.
