Now, to the interesting fabric find. I think most sewers in Australia are aware of a higher-end fabric outlet that has an online store. I have been drooling over one of their silks for some time, but have resisted purchasing because of the cost and the practicalities of caring for silk.
I believed most of their fabrics were quite exclusive, but then I stumbled upon this in a cheap fabric store in Sydney yesterday.
The man said it was silk. It looks and feels like silk. I'm pretty sure it's the same as the expensive one that I want, as I was at this expensive fabric store on Tuesday. It was just $15 per meter. SCORE!! I think I may make Vogue 8728 with it.
