Oops. I did it again

Savers used to be The Place to score random awesome bits of fabric. Then, everyone else cottoned (ha) on to the fact AND Savers started pricing them as if they were lengths of rare cloth hand-woven from the gossamer locks of virgin fairies.

But. The op shop gods were smiling on me last night.

vintage fabrics

Left to right:

  • Loose-woven wool, plenty for a toasty winter skirt
  • Lovely drapey rayon, plenty for a blouse (mebbe the corker from the last post?)
  • Lurid rayon, narrow width but good length. Loud dress methinks.
  • Metres and metres of very fine cotton shirting
  • Cotton twill with very odd abstract screen-print
  • Vintage cotton with Japanese-style chestnut leaves
  • Polyester – I know, I know, but such a cool stylised hydrangea print

And price? $3 and $4 each. Thank you, op shop gods. Don’t think I’m not grateful.

  1. Oh wow you must have got to Savers just after me yesterday hehee! I considered some of those pieces you bought.

    There was a stunning red fabric with metallic flowers all over it but I thought nah, cos it would clash with my hair.

    Yay for getting that polka dot rayon – it’s so pretty. The green print cotton would make an awesome skirt too.

  2. I got 4 things – mostly for tops.

    * sage green w/ white polka dots – its soft and drapey…cotton of some sort.

    * black w/ smaller white polka dots – cotton again but thinner. I think they’re both blends of some sort. Haven’t got the hang of all the different fabric types yet!

    * black and white floral drapey cotton again. Almost like a lawn as its quite fine.

    * silvery grey shirting stuff that could be rayon?? has red stripes through it. Photos kind of sucks but its nice in real life

    Pics are here 😀
