It was difficult to resist – new fabrics in my fabric stash

This is a part of fabrics I have bought during the fabric market – Stoffenspektakel in Zwolle.

There are mostly jerseys for tops (black, red and yellow) – quick projects – as well as a stretch fabric for pants. Yes, I will have to tackle this topic again. Maybe I will have to find a sewing partner to help me with fitting. This will be in-between project while working on a French jacket – a part of the Little French Jacket sew-along.

Stoffenspektakel - Fabric market - new fabric stash - winter tops

While shopping for fabrics I visited my favourite stand Kruyff V.O.F. with so fabulous fabrics – it was difficult to leave them there. I will have something to think about for the next fabric market in Apeldoorn. I have still bought black cashmere for a coat and fabulous purple (Acai – Pantone colour for Fall 2013) for a jacket. And while talking to the stand owner she gave me at the and a small leaflet with contact details. Unfortunately they do not have a physical shop – they only sell on a markets – but – while reading this leaflet at home I have noticed a small note:

‘…We are with our stand every Monday in Apeldoorn on a market…’

My mouth dropped down! This is great! This is great news!! I have weekly access to outstanding, houte couture fabrics… it is really great news especially that I want to focus on making garments with high quality fabrics. It is killing for my wallet though 🙂
I already can see my webshop full of French jackets and other couture garments – make to measure/order …
It doesn’t mean of course that I will be there every Monday … but it gives me a peaceful feeling that I am not limited to 2 fabric marks a year.

  3. I love the fabric you chose, the black cashmere sounds so luxurious! I’ve never bought any super expensive fabric… though I will if I can find some stretch sequin fabric I adore 🙂

    1. The cashmere (with a little wool) is really nice – it feels great – luxurious – high quality. It was not so expencive as I expected. I know I will enjoy this coat for a long time.
      I am curious this sequin dress … which pattern will you use?

    2. I have a few in mind. I am still deciding whether I want it with long sleeves or short sleeves. I have seen some very nice ones with short sleeves and a v back. I am thinking maybe Kwik Sew 3561 or Simplicity 2054 🙂

    3. Great patterns! The cut will be simple with gorgeous fabric 🙂
      I have just realized I have some sort of sequine – black – fabric attached to the Butterick pattern dress 5706. Next on your list?

  4. I hope to get to the stoffenspektakel later in the autumn, when I have time to sew again… I am sure I will be buying lots of knits too! Looking forward to seeing all your creations.

  5. I love those reds and golds at the bottom of the stack. I must be attracted to reds right now!
    Is the lovely boucle at the top of the stack for the French jacket (or am I stealing your thunder for that post)? 🙂

  6. I love what you’ve picked. How cool that you have someone offering great fabrics every week! I have a shop in town that sounds similar to the one you went to and it’s so nice knowing that I can pop in for high quality fabrics.

    1. I will make full report on the blog including all fabrics – I have just took pictures – and guess what – I descovered some fabrics I have forgotten I have bought.
      It is wonderful – it takes pressure that I have only actually 1 moment of buying fabrics. This sometimes can lead to miss-shopping… now I can look and think and go back – wonderful, relaxing?
      It is wonderful to have shop like in your place – I would probably spend hourse there … I would bring own table, coffee 🙂

    1. I am so glad I in the end visited this market last year! The majority of stands have, cotton, stretch polyester or viscose fabrics – only few have really high quality silks, wool, tweeds.
