I had a couple of hours yesterday, and I headed towards the fashion district, hoping to find some perfect giant houndstooth fabric to make myself a Mondo-inspired pencil skirt (my own expression of outrage over Project Runway's outcome.)
Yes, I don't need any more fabric. Whatever.
I hit gold at LA Fabric. They had a wall of wool fabric on sale for $10 - here's what I bought.
Isn't it perfect? I love LA Fabric.
After LA Fabric, I headed over to King's Textiles - since it isn't right on the strip, I've never actually been there. But wow! It is pretty amazing. I was thinking of trying to mix prints and make a printed top - more Mondo tribute. But I think I'm going to be boring and safe, and pair it with a solid. Instead - I bought this houndstooth knit - which is going to be a dress.
Good fabric times.
