Every time I go I find a new store so I'm going to add a few details for future reference. This was an unusually efficient trip largely because it was incredibly hot!
First up the fabrics, all of the ones immediately below came from the fabric stalls set up along Ki Lung Street. Predominantly cottons and a stall that sells interfacing and another that is good for serger threads and other bits and bobs.
Two lovely pieces of cotton sateen, definitely a floral pencil skirt and possibly a black & white dress
Black and beige printed cotton, not sure what this is going to be yet....
Large panel print purple chiffon, absolutely no idea what I will do with it, but I had to bring it home with me
I wanted to get some piping cord, a detail that Carolyn uses often and which I always admire. I found some at the supplies stall on the same street and asked for 20 yards. The stallholder could not find the end and could not be bothered to measure off 20 yards so we did a deal for the whole bundle. I have no idea if it was a good deal for me or not because I am kind of with the stall holder here and can't be bothered to measure it myself, but I can probably pipe everything I make for the rest of my life and still have some left over!
Ball of spaghetti!
These next pieces came from Moon Yue Fabrics, a gem of a store which has higher end fabrics, although the jerseys and silk linings are very reasonably priced here.
Moon Yue Piece Goods, 1/F, 125-127 Yu Chau St, Sham Shui Po
Digital print jewel silk crepe. This is a contender for the wedding outfit next Friday if I can get my act together. My back up plan is this Donna Karan number.
Border print jersey, some kind of dress I'm sure
Geometric print silk blend, love the colours in this, planning a simple but versatile skirt
Po Fai Ho Garment Accessories, 158 Yu Chau St, Sham Shui Po. They even have a website
I've got a few finished things lined up to post, just need to get onto the photography!
