At The Cloth Shop Melbourne, we saw the nicest fabric. This confirmed that Melbourne sewers have loads of taste and choice. As I'm a bit of a bargain shopper, there was a roll of corduroy, black with a greenish print. The aim of our Melbourne trip was to build green into my wardrobe, so this was perfect. The price of the fabric was more perfect $3/metre.
Once I'd completed my slow walk around the bolts of fabric, imagining 'what could be', I found the bargain box and this fabric was peeping at me.The owner at The Cloth Shop was very chatty and we arrived there at the end of a long day of fabric shopping. If there were cappuccinos in the store, I think we would have stayed longer.
I don't normally use a red zipper for a black shirt but this is a casual zipper. I wouldn't try this with properly tailored garments.
The skirt is fully lined because this is a winter skirt and without lining, it clings to my winter tights or fishnets.
