Fabric Run One - Done

Phase one of my fall/winter fabric shopping is complete! I sunk out of my office a little early on the Thursday (4:55 *gasp*) and hopped the A train 34th St. I purchased the fabric and lining for a jacket and skirt. I'm really excited about that these two very unique and distinct fabrics I choose because they have the same lavender accents. Although I would never wear the jacket and skirt together, I can wear the same accessories, shoes, and shirt when wearing either one! Fortunately, they had the perfect lining that I will use for both pieces. Another plus is the accent color is lavender and I love all shades of purple.

I went to Mood Fabrics (made famous by Project Runway) because they never fail to provide the best quality of unusual designer fabrics. I don't know how they do it, but they even manage to get fabrics straight from the design houses of Chanel, Emilo Pucci, Cavalli, YSL, Marc Jacobs and more. Talk about sewing runway looks!

The lavender Houndsooth is for the Jacket and the tweed is for the skirt.

Here is a close-up.

I am so, so jealous that you can just hop over to Mood. it took my friend and I (country bumpkins from upstate) two trips just to find it! The pieces you chose are lovely and I look forward to see what they become.
