|What it looked like on the Internet - looks like a metalic sweater knit in chocolate with gold thread|
|Picture of actual fabric - it is actually even more gold and shiny than the picture shows -|
which makes me understand the difficulty of trying to get an accurate depiction
The other big disappointment was a slinky fabric purchased from Denver Fabric website (which I believe is the same as fashionfabricclub.com).
I absolutely fell in love with it and envisaged a cross over dress... however it looked like the picture but was covered in bright blue glitter - which didn't show in the photo and drops everywhere - Blue glitter is NOT me - neither is gold foil - so I am still thinking of what to do with both of these.
Mostly though - the fabric I have purchased have looked like the picture - or even better!
I have to promise myself not to purchase any more fabric until I have at least 5 garments finished (then I might reward myself).
It's funny - I think I am even more addicted to buying the fabric than I am to sewing it. Being a beginner, I worry that I will ruin the beautiful fabric when I cut and sew it. Oh well - you have to break the eggs to make an omelette!
Here is some of the fabric I have purchased - I don't have pictures for all as I actually walked into a shop a couple of times too!
