A big box of joy…

…arrived from Fabric Mart today! ūüôā

From left to right, back to front:

Silk/Cotton suiting, cream and metallic silver.¬† There is MUCH more silver in this fabric than I expected!¬† I had planned to use this for the jacket from Vogue 1132, but I’ll have to think on that a bit….

Marc Jacobs wool blend plaid, which doesn’t appear to be available on the site anymore.¬† I think I paid $3.99/yd for this.¬† It was such a good deal, I bought 6 yards.¬† I would like to make the Burda Tonia Shorts¬†out of this.¬† The rest will probably be used for a jacket.

Marc Jacobs novelty embroidered cotton with stars.¬† This one is so fun, and doesn’t appear to be¬†available any more.¬† The weave between the stars is somewhat loose and the fabric is very light.¬† It will probably end up as a summer dress.¬† Here’s a closeup:

Linen blend jersey knit in chili pepper. 

Linen blend jersey knit in aquamarine.

“Brushstrokes” ITY knit from Julie’s Picks.¬† I’ll make another McCall’s 5974 with this.

White ribbed knit for turtlenecks/tees for layering.

Purple/Gray/White striped silk shantung that is no longer available.¬† I have no idea what I’ll make with this, but it is BEAUTIFUL.¬† The stripes run selvage to selvage.¬† I’d like to try to avoid horizontal stripes, although maybe the broader stripes won’t be so bad.¬† I have about 2 yards.¬† Any suggestions?

Black Ponte knit from Julie’s Picks, which I’m hoping to make some pants from.

Not pictured is this lovely silk/cotton toile. I don’t know what this will be yet, but it is very lovely!

I also received a free 6 yard fabric bundle with my order.  I received 2 yards of a red knit, 1 5/8 yards of a black woven, and another 2.5 yards of the cream/silver silk/cotton suiting, so I guess I can make a skirt to go with my jacket!
