Ok, well, maybe not the best thing, but definitely one of the perks is the need to go to the LA fashion district on a fairly regular basis to buy fabric, rhinestones, and supplies. And it seems to have ended up as something of a tradition to end each visit at the Michael Levine Loft – the $2.50 per pound rummage sale of fabric. And, as usual, I have managed to walk away with far too much yardage of far too many goodies:
|These are very stretchy mid-weight fabrics in navy, green, and red.
I am thinking I could makes some great slim-fit pants, shorts, and trousers.
I probably have enough of each to make at least 3 pairs of pants. At least.
|Left: Poly blend plaid. Loved the plaid pattern too much. I see some skirts in my future.
Right: This is a heavenly feeling wool. Heavenly. At $2.50 per pound!
Yum. Lots of fun fabrics on the super cheap. Yeah, I might be going insane and tearing my hair out with pre-regional sewing stress right now, but, well, at least it isn’t all work and no play.
