The first of my LA garment district fabric finds

One of the first things I found in the garment district was that a lot of the stores had some of the fabulous ruffled fabrics I've been eyeing.  Luckily, I knew to shop around, so I ended up getting a pretty good deal on these two. 

Aren't they pretty?  The purple ruffles are the width you would normally see in this fabric, and the gray are narrow ruffles.  Now I need to decide what to make. 

Maybe I'll make a swimsuit like Dana made.  I think that will definitely be on the list!

Or some capri-length ruffly leggings like Katy made.  I think the gray would be cute for these.

And how cute is this hat?! 

Either of my girls would be adorable in one of these tunics.

Decisions, decisions!


  1. Love the ruffled fabric! There was a pair of shorts in a recent Chasing Fireflies catalog made out of ruffle fabric that were adorable.

  2. Do you remember the name of the store that carried it and how much it was?

  3. I don't remember the name of the store, but it seems like almost every store had it. I think I ended up paying about $4/yard for it.
