Anyone else in Adelaide go to Gay Naffine and Lucy Giles’ fabric sale? What did you get?
That digital print looks amazing!
Yes I thought so too. I couldn’t leave it there..
Lovely striped knits! I’m heading to Adelaide in a couple weeks, not sure if I’ll have anytime to fabric shop but is there anywhere you can recommend for moderate priced knits/denims/suiting type fabrics?
I’m not the best sewist to ask because I buy so much from this designer selloff sale. Its only twice a year and it finished yesterday (the rest of the time they are doing their normal thing- making and selling designer garments!).
Spotlight and Lincraft both have shops in the CBD in Rundle Mall.
DK Fabrics on Port Road has an enormous selection of everything fabric and haberdashery.
Ferrier Fabrics on Fullarton Road is smaller but has a nice range.
Ah fabric p*rn! Me loves your choices!
I took Maria aka velosewer to SAS Fabrics near LA yesterday. We were relatively restrained, but 9 pieces and 3 laces came home with me. If she is good in NYC, she should still make her baggage allowance.
SAS and New York garment district. Can’t wait to see Maria’s haul! Your lace looks great in the top on your latest blog post.
Ahh I totally didn’t know 😦 saddd
Oh dear. Get yourself on their mailing list!
I rushed in before work and grabbed a couple of merino knits, some wool blend to make a cape, some reversible striped knit in red and purple (dotty on one side and striped on the other), a couple of other knits to make cowl tops (wool/modal blends according to the lady at the counter, very soft), and a lovely viscose/poly blend chevron knit that I found lurking under the counter. Then I went home and patted and toyed with all my fabrics!! (something only sewists can understand)
Sounds like you got fabulous things. Clearly I didn’t spend enough time there..
I’ve been playing with my fabrics all weekend.
I love a good fabric sale, looks like you got some awesome things!
Hi Sewingelle, I didn’t really need any more fabric but somehow 9 pieces followed me home 😉 Some ‘mink’ faux fur pieces for a vest, red striped viscose knit in 2 widths of striped, destined for V8904 aka the shingle dress, red spotted polyester taffeta, reversible for a peplum top. Cotton voile with Abstract fingerprint, great cowl top. Didn’t see the Ponte or much merino there….
You got some great pieces. That spotted taffeta sorely tempted me.
I’m making the same Burdastyle peplum top that you featured on your blog some time ago, to wear with a merino knit top and straight leg jeans…
I predict that will look fabulous!
