I went shopping at local chain store on Friday - the usual - had to queue for ages to get served. Also had to delve through dusty rolls to try and find a clean one of the fabric I wanted (lucky they had plenty of rolls of it). It was also covered in glitter as well as dust, but luckily (?) it had a dirty mark at the start of the roll so I scored extra fabric. It has washed up fine. I got a crepe/microfibre in ivory to make Simplicity 4138. It is polyester but I didn't want to spend too much on the fabric for my first go at this skirt. It was about $12/metre. I also scored some soft quilting cotton at $5 m on the clearance table that I am going to make pj pants from BWOF 12-2007-127.
