On Wednesday, I got to take a vacation day and go on a field trip with my tailoring class. Yes a full fledges field trip with permission slips and everything!! It felt like I was back in elementary school 🙂
If you watch this show, then you will know why I am so excited about our field trip destination. If you don’t, then this is just a story of a girl and a lovely fabric store. Because we went to Mood!!
And we even received a great tour of all the fabric from one of the employees.
Since these were designer fabrics they were not for the faint of heart or the limited of funds. But ultimately, I didn’t buy anything because I just…couldn’t…decide!! Anyone who knows me also knows that fast decision making while artistic craft shopping is not my forte.
After Mood we wend to FIDM for the Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibit. There were lovely costumes with lots of tailoring and sewing details to be seen.
Last we went to B. Black and Son’s which is a major wool fashion fabric store in L.A. and that is where I bought 2 cuts of wool fabric for a vest and pair of pants and also spied a lovely lovely green 100% silk that I will have to go back and get. I even found a 1 1/8″ yard of 100% cashmere for $45.00 but I let one of my classmates have it.
All in all it was a wonderful day filled with so much to see. I just love it. Made me feel like a kid again.
