In the midst of all that’s going on with my dad, we had a trip planned to Austin, Texas. We almost cancelled but with his health stable and my mom INSISTING that we take our trip, we flew out last Thursday. 3 days of music festival, 2 BBQ joints and 1 bat viewing boat tour later brings us to Monday. (More on the bats later.) My sweeter than sweet potato pie husband had mapped out all the fabric stores in Austin. One that we tried was closed but I got into Hancock and found a couple of beaut items.
Remember that hawt New Look pattern I spotted? Well, I picked it up along with some suiting fabric. Nice, right?
I also picked up this little number along with a navy and white polka-dot fabric. I’m not 100% sure that I’m using that fabric for the full-skirted dress but I’m leaning that way.
I also got some black lining and zippers but they aren’t exactly feature-worthy.
Do you fabric shop on vacation? I love the selection and price in the US! Why doesn’t everyone in the States sew?
