Goldhawk Road meetup

15May11

Thanks for all the wise comments about how much yardage to buy. Good advice, which I have completely failed to take.

Karen of Did You Make That? organised a great trip to Goldhawk Road yesterday. There were about 30 sewists and we had a great time scouring the shops for fabric and talking about sewing. I am in awe of Karen’s organisational skills. She even had maps for us. And she made shopping bags!

So here’s what I got. Black cotton poplin and flame coloured lining for Vogue 1239. Black and white chiffon, the same stuff I made the Blake’s Seven top from, for Vogue 1240. And a cotton print to make a kimono – well, a dressing gown – from. That one has photographed really strangely…the print is not really fuzzy like that in real life.

So that should keep me going for quite some time. And now I’m off to catch up with all the blogs of the lovely fellow sewists I met. Thanks for a great day, Karen!

    Lovely choices, and it’ll be fun to see them made up in those patterns.
