Today the girls and I went into the city for the day. It was a beautiful day today and we wandered the smaller lanes, arcades and small designer shops.
In the afternoon we saw Atonement. I have to give this 11 out of 10. The costumes were fabulous and the whole feel of the movie was emotive and I cried....a lot....
And of course a day in the city means I have to drop into Cleggs! Cleggs is a fabric shop that I would visit almost everyday in my lunch break when I worked in the city. About 22 years back! . The actual shop has moved from its old Little Collins Street address to bigger premises in Elizabeth street but the main sales assistant is still there though he is very grey now.
And what did I buy? Well the remnant sale table got me first.
From left, coral silk chiffon, poly mesh (only 20cm so I will piece it), olive green viscose (for lining), poly rayon green/gold, and a couple of ribbons. I also got a large piece of brown knit that I will use for lining which is not in the photo.
From the bolt for $5 a metre I purchased the following two - a poly lycra knit and a poly mesh.
And the great thing with Cleggs is that you get all the details of the fabric on your receipt, including the composition, washing instructions and even the country of origin! All up it cost $30 exactly.
Hey, lucky I did not add "not buy more fabric" to my new year resolutions?
