Next Projects...

This weekend I headed up north to Norwich.  It was a lovely town, a lot of that old-world English charm, and good shopping too!  There's something quite nice about wandering around shops on old cobbled streets and through arcades. 

One of my main reasons for the visit here was a fabric shop - Anglian Fashion Fabrics.  I always have to visit fabric shops whenever I go somewhere new, it's a slight obsession of mine!  This shop though had a wide selection of fabrics, and I was quite impressed with the seasonality of them - for instance they had several shades of camel wool blend fabric for coats which was big this winter - but my local shops just did not carry any.  They also had racks of sample fabrics from suppliers for sale, buy now or miss out stuff, these were at good prices as well.  Anyhow here's my picks:

From the left, the grey will be a dress from this new seasons Vogue, V1222, from the Anne Klein New York range. 

The next 3 will be for designs from the BurdaStyle 01/2011 magazine - 102 blouse in the black and grey spotted satin, 113 skirt in the black, and the 108 dress in the printed jersey.

  1. Lovely fabrics and I love your pattern choices. I started tissue fitting that Burda blouse but it is too big . I love the sleeves on it so I might come back to it when I figure out how to grade it down a little.

  2. Thanks Lisa. I think I'll tissue fit the blouse too then before I cut out to see if I've the same problem.
