First, he knows I've been obsessed with jeans lately. This is two yards of 12oz. black stretch denim. It has already been washed.
This is an interesting cut of fabric. It's like a crinkly woven but I think it's a knit. It has four-way stretch but not as much in one direction. It's not as RED! PINK! ORANGE! as it shows in the photo. I mean, it's bright- don't get me wrong, but this photo is hard to look at.
This is also interesting. I thought it was a sweater knit but it's not a knit at all. The top fibers are chenille but the back is more like a woven backing. I have no idea what it will be made into.
Here's the back. I'm pretty sure that I've seen this kind of backing on upholstery fabrics.
This is a rayon/lycra knit. The stripes are quite wide. I'm thinking this will make a cozy turtleneck for the winter.
Another knit. It's an organic cotton.
This he found in the remnant bin. The color is darker and deeper than this photo shows.
I did find the faded line. It's one line where it was folded and it's only on one side. I think I can work around that, thank you very much.
A bottomweight pique. It's cotton/lycra. I'm thinking a skirt from the June 2009 BWOF. You know the one, the one that's a faux wrap shirt.
A Ralph Lauren twill. I want to make this into a set of capri pants. It's nice and soft.
This is an odd one too. It's coated on one side like almost laminated. It's a coated poplin. As you can imagine, it has a lot of body and zero drape. Maybe a jackety-shirt? It's hard because it's lightweight poplin. Hmmmmm . . .
This is not from the Houston Haul but it's new. I got one of those, "Hey Dawn, I know you sew. I'm cleaning out my closets and I'll never use this, do you want it?" emails. Hell, yes I want it. This is a wool flannel as you can see. There are several yards of this.
A cotton (?) gauze. This would make a great summery tunic.
I've been looking for a piece of wool like this to make a new plaid pencil skirt. This is perfect and it was free! Even better! She must have had the same plans because there is just enough for a pencil skirt and the red Ambiance lining was there too.
That's it. That should keep me busy for a while. He won't have any time next time he goes to Houston. This will keep me busy. Oh, and to answer a few questions. I usually have him buy me two yards. That is more than enough for a top, pants, and most dresses. He buys this stuff at High Fashion Fabrics. We are a big fan of that store.
