90% Off!!!!

I'm really not supposed to be buying any fabric (other than for projects I'm working on now).  Really, I'm not.  But what had happened was ;-) The Riviera Collection at Jo-Ann is 90% off.  I fondled this fabric for months because I couldn't bring myself to pay $13-$15/yard.  I waited for sales; I collected coupons.

I couldn't get the yardage I wanted on all of the fabrics, but I'm still happy!  Here's a shot of the pieces I purchased over the summer.  All at 40%-90% off.


Top left to right:  Royal Blue Woven $1.49/yd (I also have it in Caviar $3.90/yd), Royal Blue Sequin Daisy Embroidered $1.29/yd (Oops! Forgot to turn it right side out), Stretch Cotton Sateen $4/yd,  Caviar Shine Solid $3.90/yd


Left to right:  Turquoise Woven Ombre $1.49/yd, Royal Green Space Dye Tweed $1.49/yd, Stretch Charmeuse $4/yd

Good things come to those who wait!

***If YOU find any extra of the Royal Blue woven, Caviar Woven or Caviar Stretch Cotton Sateen, PLEASE grab me a few yards!  I'll take whatever they have (up to 10 yds in either of the Caviar fabrics and 4 yds in the Royal Blue Woven.***

I'll be making a trip to JoAnns first thing in the morning to see if there is any left. I thought I hit the jackpot at 70% off...you did way better. FYI make sure that you prewash the stretch charmeuse. I made a blouse out of some and it shrunk! In about 5 more lbs I'll be able to wear it again.

Ooo! I went to two stores yesterday looking for this stuff. If you find any extra of the Royal Blue woven, Caviar Woven or Caviar Stretch Cotton Sateen, PLEASE grab me a few yards! I'll take whatever they have (up to 10 yds in either of the Caviar fabrics and 4 yds in the Royal Blue Woven.***

Did you ever find more of the Royal-Green space dyed tweed? I have some, but I'm desperately trying to find more for my bridesmaids dresses. If you were unable to find enough for your project, would you be willing to sell it?

@Shannon, I didn't find any more of the tweed. I have 2 1/4 yds for a dress I wanted to make. How much do you need?
