Today Auckland had their first Fabricabrac. It was awesome, tons of people, tons of fabric. It's essentially a swap meet with people setting up tables towering with fabric. There were lots of great deals. I decided to set up half a table, in order to force myself to get rid of some of my stash.
Sorry for the crap pic, I only had my cell phone with me. I sold my little singer 99K. It was hard to let her go, but I still have my other four vintage singers to keep me company. I only bought two pieces of fabric, and two patterns, but they were total scores. I picked up a Vogue Couturier pattern and a Vogue Paris Originals - both in my size! They are awesome, but I'm definitely saving them for when I'm a little more experienced.
Vogue 1140, a great jacket and sheath pattern. I love the slash that runs down the princess seam line, but ends just past the hips. I think I'll try the sheath first, and then work my way up to the jacket.
This suit is so cute, and chic. The skirt is pretty standard, but I'd love to try the jacket. It has 7/8 length sleeves.
Here's a quick glimpse of what I wore today, my new Macaron! After a long day it was a bit wrinkled. Tomorrow when I have the time to iron it and take better pics I'll put up a special post just for it :)
