New Fabrics Arrived!

Yesterday when I came home my fabrics had arrived from Fabric.com. It has been years since I placed an order with them. All the pieces are what I expected, except for one. HAHA! More on that in a moment.
The first piece is called Truffle Double Knit in Electric Camel. Looks beige on my monitor, but it is more of a warm color than it appears here. I have a couple of new patterns that are for knits only and I just have to choose which one I want to use.





Next is the Metro Suiting in Royal and Black. I like the drape of these two pieces. The royal will be a jacket and the black will be another skirt.











The Faille Crepe Suiting in Tangerine and Purple. I also like these but not sure which patterns I'll choose yet to make these up.






So now for the piece I didn't recognize. When I pulled the bag out of the box, I could see there was a print fabric inside and I couldn't remember ordering anything with a print. When I looked at the fabrics it is labeled Barcelona Double Knit Teaberry, which is what they were supposed to send. Well, that doesn't look like teaberry to me and it's definitely not knit. But by the time I finished editing this post, Fabric.com replied to my email and apologized and will be sending the correct fabric.

I tried to order the Metro Suiting fabric in red, but it was sold out. I wondered what the weight of it is. Perhaps I should order a swatch of that and the faille. I'm looking for fabric that I can make tailored jackets from. Enjoy all those new fabrics!
