Fabric from the desert: The 2012 Edition

I saw this as I came through the door in Hancock Fabric in Redlands, CA.

I love a lace that isn’t a floral.

And a lace that is a floral. Who am I kidding? This will be a jacket or capelet for a planned dress. Love the edging. *Sigh*

I saw a similar print in an orange but the hubby and I both preferred the blues/purples. This will be a dress.

Remember Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s colour of the year. Orange was in RTW in almost every store. I looked for orange in fabric too. Here is orange next to my face.

Looks okay, right? I also tried on an orange dress while shopping.

Terrible fitting room lighting but you get the idea. I like the tangerine colour on me. So much so that I bought this same print as a top. But I didn’t buy the dress. I figured it was very similar to the Butterick 5744 pattern I just bought minus the ruffles.

While I was shopping we passed All Saints and they had the best window display.

So neat! There were different brands and models. I wanted to take one!
