My first major notions purchase since being in my new country, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprise at how easy it was to find what I wanted. Why the surprise? Well first off I don't speak the language and two if you ever been to the this souk its a lot of stuff crammed into a small space and there can be a lot people in this small space. I also purchased this rockin knit print but that was at another store not far from the notions store. I had no intentions of buying fabric but it was the last piece, 3 meters and I just had to have it. I can't wait to make it up, I just want to throw everything aside just to sew this baby up now. I know what pattern I want to use, but I'll keep it a secret until it's done. But I'll give you a hint sweetheart, it's a top I'm lengthening into a maxi dress.
So what did I get other than the fabric
- Cones of thread, four each of navy blue, black, white, and grey.
- Small rolls of thread in burgundy, black, navy and white
- Interfacing 3 meters
- Black Lining 3 meters
- A 24 yard roll of 1 inch wide elastic ( I got a deal on this)
- Some buttons for the shirts I'm making
- and some pins
I still need to get a couple of zippers, while they had plenty I could only find invisible zippers in the colors I needed. But I have some I can use for not but I need to keep one so I can use it as a sample of what I need when I go next time.
Well hopefully I'll have something completed soon to show.
As always more later... hopefully.
