Awhile back when I was blogging more regularly I had just started Fabric Friday posts. These posts were fabric that I had found in a store or online that caught my eye. Maybe I decided to buy it or maybe it was on the wish list.
This Friday I am showing a pale blue lace from my local fabric store Baron's. They are the place to go for fashion / designer fabrics. I really need to take a picture next time I am there!
The Mr. allowed me as part of my Christmas gift to go to Baron's and buy myself some pretty fabrics. He knew I was taking some much needed time of work between the two holidays and might find some time to sew.
So, even though I was there with a few specific things in mind (wool for making a pencil skirt, a nice silk for a portrait blouse and a double knit for the bow-tied blouse all from Gertie's book of course!), I saw a few of these that I just couldn't pass up.
I am thinking the blue lace would be great for making the Chantilly lace version of the Portrait blouse in Gertie's book. Sadly, my fabric does not have a scallop edge, but I am thinking I might be able to gently cut around the scallops at the bottom.
Do you have a place that sells samples like these or a local fabric store you just love to go into?
