Near us is Clarkson's Cash & Carry. Their business is purchasing items from others business that have closed/gone bankrupt/over stocked etc. They have a huge amount of fabric . Having stock from "Spot Light" that was water damaged in the floods for example, and from other fabric shops that have ceased trading.
At the moment they have some amazing fabrics that belonged to a high end tailor. (deceased) They have beautiful wools , silks and linens. Much of this fabric is difficult to find in Aust., and I have been having a lot fun adding to my stash.
So with the NEUTRAL colour scheme in mind I purchased 5 metres of a grey wool gabardine. I have been thinking that I want to make pants and a long jacket. I think this pattern is the one.
|The pants look comfortable without a waist band. (a good design for a rectangle)|
Jacket falls to the thighs.... and I also like the shorter length.
