Today was my day off and I had arranged to meet some friends at the coast. We had morning tea and a long chat in a park and it was after 1pm by the time I headed off. I had planned to use the trip and petrol consumption wisely by incorporating a visit to East Coast Fabrics. I am regularly disappointed by the range and quality of fabrics available at Spotlight and Lincraft so when I heard advertisements for East Coast Fabrics on the radio recently, I made a mental note to check them out.
Since I am working through my stash of existing fabrics I am loathe to buy too much so I was fairly restrained. I bought these two pieces to make some more skirts. The mint green piece is linen and the other is a lightweight denim. The fabric plus a zip for each skirt cost $18.91 which I think is pretty good for two skirts. I will be using the same pattern that I used for this skirt I made recently.
I plan to add 2 pairs of sandals, a pashmina, bathers, sarong, hat, fabric shoulder bag and umbrella. A pair of pyjamas and some underwear and I will be set for pretty well anything that a week in Singapore can throw at me.
What do you think?
