What’s a holiday without some fabric shopping, right? I spent Easter with friends in Alicante, Spain. Rather than spending all of our time here:
I insisted we also spend time here:
This place was amazing. I didn’t have nearly enough time here. The curse of non-sewing friends. Actually, I take that back, they were very patient with me, it’s just that I could happily have spent a good two days in here.
It was pricey, but the selection! You know how Zara always has fabulous prints? Well, I think I found where they get them from. Also, printed knits! This is my face when I discovered this entire section of prints were all stretch fabrics
Just look at them all!
Long story short, I spent a fortune. (82.98EUR. But that’s only, like, 50GBP, right? right?). And this is what I bought:
Not sure what I’m going to do with them yet, although I quite fancy the stretch woven white floral as capri pants. Anyone have a good pattern? The blue is a four-way stretch knit, which I think might be a t-shirt dress, but the insanely loud jungle knit is TBD. I’ll think of something.
The shop is called Julian Lopez and they have branches in Albacete, Castellon, Madrid, Murcia, Sevilla, Valencia and Zaragoza, in addition to Alicante, for anyone planning a holiday to Spain.
