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.
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.
