So a quick tour, this is the view from the door from the main road side. It has two entrances one off the main street and then the back which is within the walls of the souk.
This is behind the counter, mostly cotton satins here, this is the corner of the "L" shaped store behind the counter so standing where I am you can see both entrances to each of my sides. Also if you look at the roll on the counter or the bottom of the pic, it is one of the pieces of fabric he showed me when I was looking for my fabric it is a black cotton satin., I did not get it since I wanted something with a bit more drape and a little more weight to it also something that would not wrinkle like crazy.
So this is what I ended up with, 3 meters of I don't know what. It looks a little like a linen but I can tell its not and it has some weight but not stiff. I tried to give you and idea of the drape and texture in the next two pics. I did a burn test but again still not sure.
As for my pattern I'm still not sure and I need to make up my mind soon. The Simplicity Project Runway pattern 2359 has just gone missing and I have not idea where it can be. So now to keep looking. As far as my jeans are concerned they have been put on hold for a minute, I had some issues with the fit and I have been trying to figure out how to save them and I think I have found a way but I need to walk away from them for a minute and then come back.
Until next time, happy sewing...
