Fabric I'm drooling over . . .
As I discussed early, the color magenta has been calling to me since the end of summer. And I can't get this fabric out of my head, even with the steeper-than-average price tag:

And then there's this brocade from Mood:
Fuschia Stripes Wavy Brocade from Mood Fabrics
Like the first fabric, at $40/yard this is also out of my usual price range, but oh, it would look fantastic as a pencil skirt or funky fitted top.
On the other side of the price range is this fantastic stretch corduroy called Chicago Streaks from Vogue Fabrics:
It's so hard to find corduroy for grown-ups, espcially stretch corduroy. And it's only $6.99/yard. I don't know how I've managed to keep my money in my bank account so long on this one.
I don't know how I feel about chartreuse next to my face, but there's someone out there who would look gorgeous in a top made out of this jersey fabric:
I'll probably stick to purple for myself:
One of my clients ordered a dress from this fabric:

I made myself a new denim pencil skirt this fall and I've had a three clients order denim pencil skirts as well. I love the denim at Mood Fabrics and I hope someone orders a skirt from this metallic denim because I'd love to work with it!
And this last one is lovely in it's simplicity:

If you want to check out all of the fabric I've been ogling, please visit my Pinterest boards. Ogling fabric online is certainly one of my vices. If I start on it before I go to bed, I'm up for at least another hour hopping from site to site. And then I can't fall asleep afterwards because I'm too energized from all that beauty!
I'll post a bit later this week with some of the patterns I've been drooling over lately - Style Arc! Sewaholic! Cake! Oh, my! - I love some of the patterns I've been seeing in independent pattern makers' collections. And then I'll be ready for Friday!
