My Fabric Strategery for PR Weekend
So, as you know PR Weekend is this weekend and I thought I might try to work from a shopping list rather than buy everything I see. I don’t want to be bedazzled by another print knit I don’t need. Sometimes I think these prints are like bad men you shouldn’t date. They’re so charming when you first see them, flashing their pleasing colors and their patterns at you. And then you take them home with you and they’re either not well-endowed (on the thin side), or they might start isolating you from the other fabrics in your stash like the nice and stable, solid color fabrics. Now I’m not going to ignore a nice work appropriate print in a nice beefy ITY, but tomorrow it’s gonna be all about:
- solid color knits — to coordinate with the print knits already in my stash, like black, white, cream, navy
- glazed linens — I saw some in LA, didn’t buy any, and now have major regret. I hear Mood has some nice glazed linens.
- linen knits — I really like linen knit cardigans for the summer and haven’t been able to find any that are just right at the two stores that are close to my apt. I want white, natural, and black for my stash.
- silk twill, prints or solids — I really love working with silk twill. I always keep my eye out for it. It’s not shifty like charmeuse. It’s a dream to cut and sew.
That’s it peeps. That’s all I want. I think just those three or four types of fabrics will round out my stash nicely. And after this weekend, I am for sure going on a fabric diet. FOR. SURE.
