From Michael Levine Loft:
|Purple sweater knit, grey striped ponte, aqua/white striped jersey, teal poly suiting.|
|Jersey knits in lots of colors. Love the teal stripes! |
Going to have to pick a good pattern for that one.
|Tribal ITY prints. Going to make some wrap dresses I think.|
|Grey suiting, navy textured ponte, and some Green Lantern.|
From LA Fashion District:
|Sequin fabric! Silk jacquard (60" wide too!), and teal and black poly/wool blend coatings.|
Also, fancy buttons (just $0.50 each!) and buckles.
|Blue spandex, and some sequin stretch fabrics. For skating/leggings/fancy stuff.|
|Ponte knit print and more black. The print was only $3/yard! Score!|
It is the perfect weight and texture, and washed like a dream.
To be entirely fair, some of this had already been sewn up, and some of it at least has patterns traced, ready to go. Others are for projects I have been thinking about for a while. I had no ponte in the stash (none - can you believe it?), so I was filling a hole too. And nearly all of this was bought with a specific project in mind. Of course, I don't exactly have a ton of time to work on any of my planed projects for these fabrics right at the moment, but I am hoping I can sneak in at least a little bit of selfish sewing sometime in the next few months... At least an easy knit top or something. Until then I can think and plan ahead for my inevitable end-of-summer sewing frenzy.
