Today I had an impromptu fabric fair visit. The day before yesterday I found out that this giant travelling fabric fair was coming to Antwerp and it seemed the perfect opportunity to get some fabric for winter maternity wear.
We met at Starbucks and took the tram to the fair. We wanted to get there bright and early so we wouldn’t have the big rush of people, too bad it seemed like everyone had the exact same idea.
Plenty of people and plenty of fabric. So naturally I walked away with some of it 🙂
I tried to stick to my own colour palette (on top) and the one Gillian made for me (at the bottom), because I’m trying to be more coordinated.
So here’s what I bought!
On the left: a sweater knit in a lovely deep dark teal colour. The picture doesn’t do it any justice.
On the right: a warm thick jersey knit. I bought enough for leggings and a dress, but I’ll have to cut it single layer to get the stripes to match.
On the left: a thin jersey with what looks like a lace overlay but isn’t.
On the right: a rich stretch velour. It’s cotton on the inside so it’ll be a great winter dress
AND THE SCORE OF THE DAY:
Seriously! It’s a knit! With foxes on it! How could I resist!
Do you think I behaved? Do you like the colours?
