Whilst visiting my daughter in Norwich a few weeks ago I was lucky to find this shop. This is a sewers' paradise , I think I 'drooled' my way round this store. It was fantastic! As well as buying cord material for Winter clothes I also bought a panel of this 100% linen border print.
Now I don't need another summer skirt, lol!!! But this material is so fresh, summery, whatever ,and at £4.95 a panel of 54" wide it was a snip(excuse the pun!!!)
Once home I found a very old skirt pattern(so old the drawing on the front is illegible, consequently I haven't a photo to show you) and in less than a week here is my gorgeous skirt. It is lined and all I have left to do is find a fastening for the waistband, but I love it.
Keen sewers in Norwich are so lucky as on the same street as Anglian Fashion Fabrics is 'Sew Creative'. Here I found wool. patchwork and quilting supplies and sewing machines that I see in my dreams. In here, I did buy some material for quilting and some wool , unfortunately not a new machine , but my Janome Jubilee is a gem and I would miss it. The service was excellent and the shop a delight.
It is just as well I don't live in Norwich as I think I would be bankrupt by now, lol!!!!
