Last weekend I took a road to a Fabric store in San Francisco, CA. The name of the store is the Fabric Outlet. There was all types of fabric, one whole wall dedicated to mostly knits, my favorite to sew with.
I went in thinking, oh I will get some Fall colored fabrics to start my Fall sewing. There were so many spring/summer pretty fabrics still out that I couldn’t pass them up.
I have ever said that Camouflage is one of my favorite prints? Well it is. I love it in all colors, here are a few that I picked up.
The first one is a black, pink, and tan print. I can see this one in a skirt or dress, with a matching clutch or head wrap.
The red, white, and black one has to be my ultimate favorite. I plan on making another version of McCall’s 7688, View E. I loved how the first one came together.
The last one is a light to dark pink, with a little flower mixed into the design. Not really sure if it is considered camouflage or not. It looks like it could be, then it looks like a more floral print. I don’t know, but I liked it and the colors.
These 3 were all remnants, they were already on sale and the coupon special was an additional 20% off. These are knits and will become maxi skirts. They are all thick enough to be worn in the winter with some cute boots or booties and a sweater to pull the look together.
I love this tie-dyed one, but I have no idea what to use it for. I think when I finish sewing up the maxi’s on my table, I will be all maxi’ed out. Maybe a long cardigan. Not sure, but this fabric was calling me.
The burgundy floral with be a wrap dress I am think the famous McCall’s 7681 View C with the single layer bell sleeve.
The middle fabric is a soft denim, this photo is not the best for how pretty this one is. This will become Vogue 1593. I am thinking of using a contrasting thread, like a red or turquoise to show off the fabric color.
The yellow on the end will be a top or a dress of some kind. Once again I didn’t have a pattern in mind when I bought this one, but the color is so vibrant.
The Fabric Outlet had several bolts of African Print Fabric on Hand, please see the video below.
I really liked this store and see myself going back again when I need fabric or just want to get away. The customer service I was given by Yvonne, would be one of the main reasons I would go back. She greeted us as we were looking around the store, asked what were looking for, if we needed assistance with anything or had questions, she was very friendly and professional. She cut the fabric perfectly, folded it nicely, and sang and smiled the whole time. She is what customer service was all about. Thank you Yvonne for a wonderful experience.

Bye for now, time to go Sew Something!!!
