The rest of the exhibit was mostly for shows I'd never watched or even heard of, but I was still able to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous gowns from Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, Pretty Little Liars, Great Expectations, and more. I think being next to the FIDM museum is one of my favorite things about living in TCOCC. I mean, when the Hobbit movie costumes make their way over here next year (because they have to be nominated for Academy Awards, right?!? It would be such a travesty if they weren't!) I am going to be there ASAP! And if/when I move away, I will seriously consider making a trip back just to see the costumes. Seriously, what a rare and totally awesome opportunity to look at real film costumes!

After a sufficient time spent swooning, Shayna graciously accompanied me as I shopped for fabric at the scholarship store and Michael Levine Loft. Seriously, anyone who doesn't sew who is willing to come fabric shopping with me, and not only be there, but be an active participant in helping me carry bags and make difficult decisions, is a saint. Thankfully, Shayna is one of the saintliest people I know.
|From the Loft, where everything averaged out to $1/yd: unopened 5-yard sample bolts of mint/dark gray jersey and cream-colored jersey, plus a yard each of strawberry/gray striped jersey and rich royal blue sweater knit.|
I can't wait to make a couple of Tiramisu dresses from the jerseys -- can it hurry up and be November already?
