So yeah, I got some pretty sweet loot while shopping with friends in the Garment District the other day. Home Fabrics has a well known $5/yd silk taffeta section for their bolt ends where I found 6 yards of the perfect glowing coppery silk to do the side panels on the Cersei Aqua dress. I also found 3+ yards of this cool aqua shot with copper micro striped silk that I may use with some of the other fabric on something else, they looked too well together to resist!
I just happened across this amazing beaded lace straight out of the Little Mermaid's Couture collection, if she had one. I made a Victorian "water" themed fancy dress once upon a time and I'm thinking I may need to re-trim it with some of this blingy sequined "seaweed."
I also found some killer red sequined fabrics for this year's Myth Masque outfit. Not too much info for how but I think it's going to be pretty fab. ;)
