195o's inspired african print lover

So to some of you Brixton might seem like the kind of place you NEVER want to go amongst most it does not have the kindest reputation. Rather than try to change your mind im going to revel in that fact, as quite franckly thats good news for me. It means that less of you get into my secret fabric heaven........

I went down fabric heaven last Saterday  to pic out some fabric with a friend/collueauge/client of mine who wants me to make a bespoke skirt for her. It was nice to show her around and take her to see some of my fabric shop friends. 

I have not let myself step foot in any of those shops for so long as it always ends up being expensive. Well Saturday was no different......my friend picked out her fabric really quickly a little bit of umming and ahring while I pulled out 6 yard length after 6yard length saying I only want a little look I'm not hear to buy. I have fabric up to the ceiling in my studio I defiantly don't need anymore.

Hard to walk away but I did it.......but not for long..........I suggested we head over to another little African print shop in Brixton Village again greeted with 'hey long time no see'. All i wanted to do was have a quick peek but then one thing lead to another and i had no choice but to pick up these corkers.

I am an addict I swear there is nothing I can do about it its out of my control! even if there was a Fabric Addicts Anonymous I don't think I would want to go because in all honesty I LOVE it
