Ok, so I knew I was going to need to go to LA garment district to get a few things to work on skating costumes for nationals. What I wasn’t expecting was a 50% off of solid fabrics at the Loft. For those keeping track, that means $1.25 per pound. So, while I was quite restrained in my other non-planned purchases, I went a bit wild in the Loft. Ooops.
|My legit purchases – rhinestones! These are the cheapy fake ones,
but at 200 feet they look just like the real stuff.
|Also quasi-legit – red spandex and mesh, blue textured spandex, and teal sequins|
|Lining fabrics in grey and navy, and striped knit fabric ($3/yard – I loves it!)|
|The Loft haul – full priced prints at $2.50/pound.
Back – lace print cotton jersey, teal/black stripe knit, green/yellow poly knit.
Front – feather poly charmeuse print, blue/green poly charmeuse print,
metallic blue stretch mesh, teal zig-zag knit.
|Half priced solids! Green sweater knit, black rayon solid, purple coating.|
|Pants-weight material. I have seen so many people sewing up bright colored
pants (mainly Clovers) on the internet lately that I just couldn’t pass up the red.
|More skating fabrics – lots of red slinky, with some minty green thrown in.
Oh, and some lightweight purple poly chiffon too.
