The Sewcial Net-WERK! 01.12.14

Here's this week edition of The Sewcial Net-WERK!

This is going to sound bad but, this week was the first time that I realized that you can sometimes find the same fabrics that your favorite designers have used to create their garments.

I totally had a duh moment twice this week...

The first was when I saw that Mood Fabrics posted THIS on their Instagram page...

Of course, I was too late to snag any of this beautiful Thakoon fabric. But I was ecstatic to know that snagging designer fabrics was a possibility.

Then I checked out Dorothy's blog, Sewingfunthings, and saw that she found fabric similar to the type used to make this Nicole Miller sheath dress.

Dorothy created a beautiful dress that was similar to the Nicole Miller design, and it fit her like a dream!

Although she recreated a designer's garment, Dorothy still made this dress all her own...love it!

What have been some of your favorite designer fabric finds?
