Fabric splurge

This is a short post because I am still having heart palpitations over my fabric splurge yesterday. I did go to Tessuti Fabrics with the good intention of spending the remainder of my $500 voucher on some practical linen for summer staples. However, I walked away with something a little different. My third place prize in the 2013 Tessuti Awards has now been spent in its entirety…it didn’t take me long!

Thanks to this dress here:

I was able to purchase 4m of this dreamy Italian viscose.
 
 
 
It drapes beautifully, is machine washable, non-directional in print, and in my absolute favourite colours. I can’t even breathe how much this cost me per metre, but let me just say it is nearly double the amount I have ever paid for fabric in the past. I actually have a dress in mind for it (which is why I needed so much) but I suspect it is going to sit in my stash for a long time until I can work up the courage to cut it!

    1. Now to be brave enough to use it ;-)! I love your blog, very inspiring! Looking for a good shift dress/shell top pattern at the moment so loving reading about your shift dresses.

  1. Oh my goodness!! This is incredible! I love putting two and two together! Congrats on your Tessuti award – I LOVED that dress when I saw the winners announced! And an excellent choice of fabric to spend your winnings on!
