I’ve just returned from an amazing holiday to Edinburgh to visit my BFF, which of course required a trip to the fabric shops. There don’t appear to be many options in Edinburgh, however the one and only shop we did go to, I was giddy with excitement in. This is a picture of me when I was simply ready to burst with excitement.
Edinburgh Fabrics has an amazing collection of Harris tweed and Moon tweed. And in the end I came away with four pieces, plus one for my BFF which I’m going to make into cute little winter shorts. So I have four new garments to add to my wardrobe planning.
First up is this amazing Harris tweed. While £38 a very narrow meter, it practically jumped out, ran over and climbing into my bag the moment we walked in the store. I’m now searching for the perfect A-line skirt to make it up in.
Then this beautiful Moon wool in a heather color on sale for £25 a meter. This is going to Colette’s Phoebe dress.
We’d spent the previous day in Walker Slater, and it was sooo inspiring. So when I saw this subtle tartan (again £25 a meter) from Moon I knew it was going to be the Pleated pencil skirt from Delia Creates.
I love flecked wool so was really excited to find this beautiful charcoal Moon wool with tiny turquoise, red and yellow flecks (£25 a meter). It may be another pleated pencil skirt or it may be a little blazer.
Finally is this lovely Moon wool my BFF got (alas not on sale, so £35), which are going to be for some Maritime shorts.
