NO fabric porn? I want to see!!!
regarding my epic fail at my 2015 fabric fast. You asked for it, fabric porn.  

This is the silk suiting fabric that I picked up


The picture doesn't do the fabric justice. I wish you could rub your fingers across the surface of this fabric, "you can hear its music" (Kelby 204). There is a scene in The Pink Suit where Kate unwraps a length of pink boucle exposing its raw beauty and her own passion. It is one of my favourite scenes in the book. And it describes how I feel about this fabric.  

The other fabric I picked up in hono[u]r of Jungle January.  


I'm sure this is what Anne was waiting to see. Sorry, I made you wait for this one. It is a lightweight knit with marsala spots. How 2015 is this! I'm pretty excited about this year's animal print fabric. I do believe that I have a lipstick colo[u]r to match these spots. I have to decide on a sweater pattern and finish off the current project on my sewing table and then I'll get to work on the sweater.  

Well, that's it for fabric porn. Happy Sewing!

    1. Thanks, I wish I had more of the animal print knit. I would have loved to try a Tracy Reese dress Vogue 1314 in this knit but I'm short half a metre. It looks like it will be a sweater instead.

Out-of-print (OOP) Vogue 8887 has become more than sewing a pair of trousers. It's an act of slow sewing. I just want to sit and reflec...
