One Indie Shop Bites the Dust

It was only three weeks ago that I told you how lucky I and other Richmonders were because we had two independent fabric stores within the city limits.

Well, not anymore. The cute little store Fleur Fabrics will close it's doors at the end of this month. While I didn't get over there before she sold out of fold-over-elastic I was able to check out the greatly reduced wares. However, all I found to bring home were two more vintage patterns at $1.70 each:

Simplicity 5060

I hope to use this one similar dress to correct the armscye of Simplicity 4429

Vogue 9763

I keep finding examples of this particular skirt style with the center pleat. Below is a picture I saved from the Lucky magazine website. Too cute.

BTW -- so sad when indie shops don't make it. I hope another rises in its place.
