I am jammed for time here. I would love to wax poetic about the PR Shopping day this past weekend. To tell you how awesome it was to meet Robin IRL. How great it was to see old friends. But let me get straight to the goodies, because time is short here at Chez Elizabeth.
Our group was so large, we had to split into two groups for the first two stores which opened specially for us, Metro Textiles and Elliott Berman. I spent most of my fabric budget at these stores.
At Elliott Berman I bought a Missoni sweater knit which will become a fall tunic (pattern TBD) and a beautiful silk (TNT sheath dress anyone?).
Then I really went wild at Metro Textiles. Kashi had so many great fabrics. I bought this gorgeous, I mean gorgeous wool silk boucle in gun metal grays and he had a matching silk charmeuse. I also bought a metallic gray knit for a date night top.
Then I couldn’t pass up this wool knit in purple, my favorite color. And who could leave there without the ubiquitous border knit?!
Let’s not forget the silk charmeuse (on the right in the picture below) to line my fall coat and my first double knit for a, wait for it, sheath dress. I have a feeling one never forgets their first double knit. *sigh* On the left, is my only fabric from Parons, a mauve tweed. I heart tweed.
By the time we reached Parons I think we were all fabric fatigued. But it was a fun day. Again, so glad that so many people came to shop from locales far and wide.
And, now I know you were all wondering if I finished my dress for my cousin’s wedding which is this weekend. Well….
I did. I’ll do a full review of all the alterations I made when I am back from the Midwest, but for now… Here are some pictures to tide you over.
Hope you all have a great week and Labor Day weekend!
