If you haven't heard of or shopped at Mood Fabrics, you've clearly been living under a rock. I have a handful of fabric retailers that I've ordered from and Mood Fabrics has just catapulted it's way to the top of the list.
I'd ordered once before from Mood Fabrics sometime last year and was happy with my purchases.
But, this time. My goodness! Let's get to it!
I can never have enough black stretch knit fabric. After comparing the fabric content and price across my favorite fabric retailers, I decided to purchase from Mood. This fabric has a nice drape, but has enough structure for what I like. I don't care much for see-through stretch fabrics, so I was very pleased with this one. I'd definitely repurchase. Find this fabric here.
When I ordered, I got the last bit of fabric (sawwy!). When I got the fabric, I realized why they sold out. The color on this fabric is gorgeous. This fabric feels amazing. I've worked with jersey fabric before, but never a viscose jersey. I definitely see something drapey and flowy with this. A romper, a dress? We shall see! I will definitely be looking out for other viscose jersey fabrics. Find this fabric here.
I bought this fabric intending to just grab a "regular striped ponte" to sew a fitted tank dress. But, when I got the fabric, I was surprised at the quality of this fabric. It's not to say that I wanted to sew a less-than-quality garment. It's just that I felt this fabric deserved something a bit "more". I still may do the tank dress, just change it up a bit than what I intended. This is a gorgeous fabric that is soft, but sturdy with some stretch. I love pontes because they provide that support and "sucks you in". Find this fabric here.
This fabric is just... Ok, so Mood Fabrics knew what they were doing when they packed my box. They put this fabric at the bottom. As I was nodding my head in approval at the rest of my fabrics, I gasped. I literally sucked in air excessively and then squealed. This. Fabric. Is. Gor-JUSS! Let me give you a close up. Find this fabric here.
My goodness, Mood Fabrics is hitting it out of the park with their ponte knits. I mean, WOW! Even these pictures do it no justice. Once again, this ponte has that support with just enough stretch to "hug" the body. I could live in ponte knits all year around if Texas summers weren't so belligerent.
This Mood Fabrics haul was a winner, winner chicken dinner!
My order also came with some samples. Out of the samples, I would love to have the Pink lace knit and the purple silk chiffon. But, the silk chiffon is way above my pricepoint, so I'll just run the sample on my face to get a fix. It feels ah-mazing.
