Mood Fabrics

While we were in New York I made a stop at Mood Fabrics. Mood is a 3 story fabric store located in the Garment District. Mood is where Project Runway contestants choose their fabric. The store is almost overwhelming with more bolts of designer fabric than I have ever seen!
 Dan and our friend Cory left me to peruse the 3 levels of gorgeous designer fabric and notions

I really wanted this yellow Marc Jacobs, but didn't end up purchasing. I loved the retro feel of the yellow and gold shimmer.

I really liked the leather and fur section. I looked into buying leather, but felt like I didn't have enough experience to make anything quite yet. I am now doing some research and hope to experiment soon!

 I ended up buying two brocades. The pink is Marc Jacobs and the Blue and Black is Carolina Herrera. I'm not sure what I will make with them. That was the hardest part about shopping at Mood, trying to decide what to buy and what I would make. You have to at least have an idea in order to purchase the amount of yardage. I am thinking about making a mini skirt with the blue fabric for the fall and holidays. I'm not sure what to make with the pink. I'll keep you posted!

Thanks for stopping by! We have that gold brocade on our website for sale, in case you change your mind. I turned the pink/orange Marc Jacobs brocade into a little skirt--see it on the Mood Sewciety blog.
