Fabric Mart

I received my first order from Fabric Mart on Friday (11/30)--I couldn't believe how much they were able to cram into one small box! I meant to post on this sooner, since many of us sewing bloggers have succumbed to the siren call of "Anna Sui Silk Blowout." It's only fair to share, right?

Yes, there are 3 colorways of the same crysanthemum print Anna Sui fabric. And I'd ordered a fourth, the blue, but it was sold out. I also like the paisley, and would have gotten other colorways of it as well, if they had been available. All of them are so beautiful in real life! I bought it for lining (per Shannon's suggestion), but some of it may need to be used for something else, matching tops perhaps? I got 4 yards of each, so there's plenty.

This is a really unusual poly/wool blend, both shiny and fuzzy. I'm thinking that it would be perfect for a Sewing Workshop jacket. 4 yards of this one, too.

Nice basic wool. I don't know if I'd call it spruce as they do on the site, but it's a nice color that I'd describe as more of a sage green. Yep, 4 yards.

These two are tie silks. Love the black jacquard, not so much the other one. But that's ok, it will get used. These were also bought for linings, but then again, the black is so fabulous that it may become a little black dress instead. 5 yards of each, because the fabric is narrow.
