The PR weekend was a blast ( as ever ), if you ever find the chance to participate, DO IT! THe ladies are awesome, the gathering is so inspiring and we always find great deals on fabric & notions.
So I came back home with 2 new fabrics ( one from our ugly fabric swap ) and a rasberry coloured poly something
Mine are the fabrics in the upper left corner. The print with the circles in beige/red/black is mine :)
Annika found some amazing patterns at a thriftstore back in Seattle and brought them with her. The "ugly" fabric is going to be a dress. I already cut out the pattern and will make the dress this afternoon ( I washed the fabric yesterday ).
I found some thread heaven in a beadstore plus some organ needles for less than in Germany :)
But my greatest find was the wooden stamp at the V & A
As you can see I already used it :)
We are planning to do the next PR weekend in KIEL :)
Update on my retro-dress:
The fabric I got at our swap is not enough to make a dress, so I'm making a top instead. The fabric is already cut :) yeah me... I don't want this fabric to become stash :) it is such a funky print, that I really HAVE to use it... I mean, it has neither grey or blue in it :) Yeeee haaa!
