So let's get right to it:
I got 3 meters of this very light weight cotton...for 60p a meter! BUT, although it was mega cheap - I discovered when I got it back to the hotel that there were folds in the fabric that the printing missed! But I got so much of it that I'll still be able to make something by just cutting around the faults.
2m of smooth light cotton - £3/m. This has a lovely striped section down one side.
2m of heavier cotton - £6/m. Not as cheap as I would have liked, but with that print I couldn't NOT get some!!!
3m of lovely light soft cotton - £2.5/m. I LOVE this cotton, it's so soft and light and would make lovely Summer clothes (too bad Autumn is just around the corner...but fabric will keep!)
1m of bright turquoise eyelet cotton - £6/m. This fabric is so special. I have never seen such detailed eyelet work as I saw in this shop. The whole shop specialised in this fabric - all different designs and so many fabulous colours! It was so hard to choose. I tried to bargain with the price as I thought it was a bit steep for Thailand, but they wouldn't budge! Also, this fabric is very narrow, so 1m doesn't actually get you very much. But I'm hoping to squeeze a skirt out of this (fingers crossed!).
1m again from the same shop as the turquoise. Look at that lovely scalloped edge, I love it!
And finally the Thai Silk:
1m of Thai Silk £10/m!!! I was shocked at the price, I really thought I would get it a lot cheaper. But this fabric is so special - the intensity of the colours is amazing. Only 1 meter because of the price, and again, this fabric is very narrow. I honestly don't know what I'm going to make with this. Any suggestions?!
Also 1m at £10/m. This fabric has hand painted orchids outlined with gold - just so gorgeous. The problem with this fabric, is that because it is SO nice I don't know if I'll ever be able to bring myself to cut it!!
So that's it! I thought I would be bringing back a lot more with me, but I guess I didn't do too badly!
I have LOTS of plans for sewing. Check back next week to find out my next project. Oh, and the Crescent skirt is done and I hope to have photos of it for you tomorrow.
