Luck of the Irish
I mentioned the other day that I had spotted a black satin brocade at Fabricland that would be perfect for Vogue 2903. When I went to Fabricland today, the brocade was gone - major bummer! However, I did spot some black faux Persian lamb that I have been eyeing the last few times I was in the store. I originally wanted to do the vintage coat (Vogue 2934) in Persian lamb, but I couldn't justify the $43 per metre price (especailly when I need 2.2 m) to create a coat I would only wear on special occasions. So, I thought I had to settle for the less expensive plain black velvet. Well, fortune was shining on me today - the Persian lamb was on sale for $17 per metre. Needless to say, I snatched up what I needed for my coat while doing the happy fabric aquisition dance.
