Y'all, I'm always so envious of the bloggers in places like New York, London, Wellington - you know, where they all meet up and hang out and talk fabric. But today I got a chance to have my own meetup with the lovely Laura of A Make it Yourself Mom's Diary. She happened to be in Salt Lake for a family wedding and was able to take a couple of hours with me for some fabric shopping and antiquing.
Yellow Bird Fabrics. If you are a garment sewist and you come to Salt Lake, you MUST come to see Yellow Bird. Amy stocks the most beautiful fabrics and the prices are very reasonable. We had fun petting the Liberty Lawn and admiring the quality of the jerseys. While we were there, Sunni popped in and we got a chance to catch up a little. In fact, she was kind enough to take this picture for us. Thanks, Sunni!
Capitol City Antiques. Their vintage pattern selection never disappoints! We also had fun checking out all the other fun vintage lovelies - tons of Pyrex and even a couple of vintage sewing machines.
And of course, I found some pretties...
Thurlow pattern. The lace will be a pencil skirt. I've been waffling about getting the Thurlow pattern, as I have a ton of pants patterns already, but these seem to work well for many ladies, so I decided to give them a try.
