Well, London was amazing. We did almost everything that we wanted to do. Including finding some highly recommended pubs and buying fabric from Walthamstow Market, following Karen’s map.
Here’s what I found:
This doesn’t photograph well as it is a sheer chiffon. It’s navy and white. I liked the chevron and I think it was 1.60 BP per metre.
I almost walked away from this but I’m a sucker for a non-floral pretty print. And it has blue, black and plum. Great to go with almost anything.
The black and white floral/dot print was from the Man Outside Sainsburys. The black and white tweed is from the shop called The Fabric Shop. So helpful to name a store exactly what it is. The tweed was the priciest I bought at the market at 3 BP per metre. About $4.50 CAD per metre.
This is the Liberty print that I picked up at Shaukat Fabrics. I wanted something that I could wear year-round so it is dark. And the floral is more wild flowers than cut flowers. Do you know what I mean? I just like it. This was the most expensive fabric that I have ever purchased. Hopefully I will actually cut into it…
I picked up a few small things throughout London. I decided to offer a special London giveaway! Leave a comment below if you would like a chance to win a London gift package. Including a small measuring tape from Cath Kidston (the Bath location FYI), handpainted ceramic buttons from the Fashion Museum in Bath and a Singer sewing machine necklace from Portobello Market. The necklace is extremely cheap so if you have allergies to metals I guarantee you will react to this one. You could use the pendant on another item if you are creative. 🙂
Please leave a comment below. I will draw a random winner on May 31st as a special treat on the last day of Me-Made-May ’13!
