I didn't get to go the PR West Coast get together two weeks ago, but I got to visit LA on Easter weekend. It was mostly time at the beach and with Mickey, but I did get one glorious hour in Mood, which was deserted.
I did pretty well, I think:
This is a Nanette Lepore wool, 2.25 yds. I know the big woven tweeds are pretty much done now, but it's so beautiful and visually appealing that I couldn't stop myself. At the rate I use up my fabric, it'll be in vogue again before I get to it. It makes me very happy.
This is a soft rayon lycra, which will be perfect for a summer top. (Summer 2008 that is!)
This is a Cavalli print in 1.75 yd panels. The colors there are all my favorites: cream, gold, red, black and green. There are gold metallic dots outlining some areas and it's gorgeous. This will take a little planning to make the best of it.
This one is a designer print, but I can't remember who. It is a textured cotton/lycra, heavyweight but just right for a summer and fall dress.
And, last is a double layer cotton lawn, brown under layer, pistachio top layer. They are sewn together in a large paisley pattern with cutouts to show the brown. This one was very expensive, so I got enough to make a loose, short sleeved summer top.
