Fabrique Fabric, Plano Texas

When I was in Dallas a few weeks ago at the ETA Conference, a couple of the local ladies told me about Fabrique Fabrics just north of Dallas in Plano.  My friend and I went up there and OMG... I have never seen so much beautiful fabric all in one place.  Los Angeles has lots and lots of fabric, but you have to weed through the crap... Not at Fabrique!  This is what I bought

...and I'm still stalking their website.  On Tuesdays, they have free shipping!   Every week they have a special buy  AND they give a 20% ASG discount... most places give 10%, but they give 20! Every person in that shop knows sewing and can answer any question intelligently. If you ever happen to be in the area, you MUST stop by this shop.  And if you have a 3 or more hour layover, grab a cab and go!  You won't regret it! 

The silk tweed in the middle is more pink and cream, with some blue and is going to be a jacket constructed Chanel style.  I'm taking another Susan Khalje class this summer and will use that fabric.  The knit in the lower left, looks fun and may be a wrap dress.  the sweater knit I'm thinking a short sleeved version of this Silhouette Pattern (I've seen this top in person and it is way nicer/cuter then the envelope photo).  The double faced wool, for some interesting unlined jacket, and the silk in the upper right... I think that would work nicely for the mother-of-the bride dress in the previous post. 

I just finished up a couple of garments and posted reviews on Pattern Review.  The links are over in the column to the right.  Happy Sewing!
