Subject: What are you doing with your VW sale fabric? (was: just all dropped in price!!) Date: 1/12/10 4:10 PM

EDITED: the sale is pretty much over, but we're all wondering what the fabric is like and what everyone's doing with it. Please post your thoughts, plans and any results you get with your fabric!

For those of you who didn't see it, the 'VW' stands for Vera Wang, and the fabric in question is a huge amount of leftovers they sold through fabric.com. When it all went on sale for $1.95 I started this thread. Right after ordering my first 18 pounds.


I've been waffling on getting that fuschia lambswool, and finally just ordered a swatch the other day. Today I went to look at it to see how much was left, and it suddenly was $1.95!! All the VW series are at that price!! GULP!! I just ordered so much silk and wool blends....after swearing I wouldn't stash this year.

Warning, I think the prices are changing right this minute, I had a lot of trouble with my cart total jumping and had to chat w/ CS to make sure I'd get the right price. I did finally get it to load with everything @ $1.95/ yd and made my purchase. So be careful for the next hour or so, I'd say.

Is the lambswool soft or scratchy? I keep thinking about this, but have never sewn a coat (just jackets out of linen and pants out of light weight wool), so I'm still vacillating...even at this ridiculous price! :-)

By the way, the remaining Ralph Classic fabric dropped to $1.95/yard also, but they don't have any fun colors of wool.

I just purchased 25 yards of fabric from this sale! I also managed to get some of the melton I ordered last time but they mistakingly forgot to ship. Yaay!

Don't forget to use coupon DEAL110 for 15% off $40. (ends 01/18)

And for 30% off (I used this already this morning --darnit!--) you can try 2WMYP9

I haven't gotten my swatch yet, but several people have posted about this fabric already and seemed to really like it. I know someone is working on a coat right now of the fuschia.

I ordered 27 yards!! 3 colors of wool, plus 3 colors of silk blend to line them. Hope I actually make these coats!!

Also, $10 for enough good wool to make a coat? How could you NOT?!

It is soft, so very soft. I just wrote a review of a coat I made with it.

What color of silk blend lining are you going to use with the fuschia? Or did you pick something else to put inside - I can't figure out what to use...
