Brisbane girls, if you have not visited The Fabric Store recently, you need to get yourself there tout suite! They have got some lovely summer silks in plains & prints in all colors of the rainbow. I also spotted some beautiful linens and they even have leather, I don't know how I restrained myself from not buying any of that. This is what I did buy and also some inspiration for their final destination.
A lovely black silk twill, very lightweight and super drapey. Inspiration is this skirt from Country Road, basically a straight skirt with a fluted hem.
Green silk, this reminds me of cheesecloth texture. Inspiration is from this draped shirt from Topshop, I have a pattern drafted and ready to go.
A lovely sandwashed silk in stone, a little thicker weight so would be great for something with a little more structure. Inspiration is this tank from Country Road which has panelling detail on the side seam and shoulders.
Silk twill print (yes more silk!) this has a lovely sheen and beautiful drape. Inspiration is Tessuti's Suzy Pants Pattern.
It's funny how quick my mind changes though, I will probably look back at this in a months time and wonder what the hell I was thinking. Women's prerogative I guess.
