I was absolutely over-awed though with two beautiful fabric shops Prue so kindly took me to. Never have I seen fabrics like I goo-gaahed over. Any would be quite at home at the Oscars or on a Parisienne Catwalk! If you're ever in Perth, you simply MUST visit Chris Hearn's Shop at Balcatta called "Fabulous Fabrics". It is the BEST dress fabric shop I've seen with fabrics to die for. The model wearing the black dress in her instore display is simply a panel of fabric - one seam up the back and you have a dress! Amazing. Look at all the 3D little "flaps" of fabric all over the panel. I could have purchased many a piece, but settled for these amazing two tone ribbon roses for a new black and white top I have. There are other coloursavailable too.
"Beautiful Fabrics" at Innaloo, another absolutely delightful lady who has scrumptious dress fabrics too. Everyone says good dress fabric shops are very hard to find if many exist at all, but ladies, these are two MUST VISITS. Some of the girls in my Sunday class didn't know these shops existed, so maybe many others who live in Perth weren't aware of the treasure trove on their own doorstep. I spotted a black belt which was exactly like one I'd just demonstrated how to make using Fasturn Turning Tools in my two sessions mentioned above!
BOTH SHOPS DEFINITELY WORTH A VISIT!
