Oh the loveliness of this new-to-me fabric store – Elliott Berman Textiles – carrying mostly imported fabrics of top-notch quality. I visited last week during a whirlwind trip east, andÂ I definitely could have spent much longer browsing and buying.Â I promise that you will not be able to leave sans purchase, there are just too many beautiful fabrics begging to come home with you. I was restrained only by my pocketbook, not by any lack of gorgeous silk, cotton, viscose, and wool options.
I love this navy, black, and off-white skyline viscose print jersey. I plan to make a simple T to let the print shine, but I may do something interesting with the neckline. Perfect with jeans.
I love white T shirts, and regardless of how careful I am with laundering, they really do not look top notch more than one season. And finding the rightweight, stretch factor, opaque-ness can be a challenge, so naturally I had to snatch up 3 yards of this silky, gorgeous, whiteÂ viscose knit.Â At least enough for 2 Ts. YUM.
I could not resist this ador-a-belle pink and red small floral print for my precious new DGD – in BOTH cotton voile and viscose jersey! I think baby Oona will be getting some smocked dresses andÂ baby leggings sometime soon…sweet!
If you get to New York, please try to stop by this delightful gem. Matthew and Eugenia were so gracious and lovely, and clearly have an eye for the “good stuff”.Â I don’t think you will be disappointed. And didÂ I mention they will send you swatches? Call and let them know what fabrics/weight/colors you are looking for, and they will pull from their current inventory. Almost like having a fabric personal shopper! 🙂
