Despite that unflattering profile, I want to end this day (or move into the later evening, anyway) with a pleasant, if quick, story:
Andrea and Gail convinced me to order from Fabrications - which ships flat to Canada for 20 bucks. If I hadn't bubbleheadedly authorized the company to send by UPS (for same price), I wouldn't have had to pay 40 bucks in customs handling. Worst. Courier. Ever. And I know that. Mind you, I wouldn't have these fabrics three days after purchase:
|2 yards Light-weight Coral Wool Jersey - it's much more orange than cerise...|
|2 yards Silk Chiffon, pattern on navy blue. I copied Andrea with this fabric. She owns it too...|
I'm extremely fascinated by the chiffon. I may have to figure out how to make a top with a stretch-free woven. I guess the bias will be my friend...
BTW, I LOVE Fabrications. Excellent service, beautiful fabrics, reasonable prices (for well-curated, quality fabric). I mean, it's an independent boutique, not a chain store.
You should totally give them a go.
