Well, I had to really, they sent me vouchers…
First MyFabrics, then TiaKnight, a terrible temptation as I’m a fan of both. Since making the shirts for the missus, I actually fancy one for myself. I stopped wearing shirts some years ago, when my boobs expanded and RTW shirts all gaped unbecomingly at the buttonholes. Not a good look when you’re teaching in a boys’ school, I think you’ll agree.
So I’ve been wearing pull on tops ever since. While I’m happy with that, and really like my wardrobe right now, a shirt or two might be nice. One definitely needs to be a plain white cotton, so I ordered a couple more metres of Tia Knight’s stretch cotton poplin, a good stash reliable, and some of MyFabric’s ‘Tula cotton soft’ which may be more opaque, I’ll find out in due course.
Of course, I had to browse dammit. And ended up with some of this lovely stuff also from TK. Remember the thought about the suede look DK jacket? Watch me now…
The little extras from MF? These 2 delights:
A cotton/silk chambray, oh yes, yes yes!
Then I also snagged this remnant of faded denim, probably for the missus, if she’s lucky
Well it would have been rude not to, don’t you think?
I was also looking for something for the missus on ebay, honest, when I fell into The Textile Centre’s vortex of yum again. I got parrots, green roses and flames.
WHY DIDN’T YOU STOP ME?!
I have to have a tooth out next week, and we had to pay roadtax, I can’t afford this weakness!
