Vogue Fabrics

What do you do on a rainy day in Chicago in June? Go to Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, of course!
They had some fantastic sales going today, like Denim for $2.99 a yard, but I was mostly shopping for stuff to make some cute t-shirts, a couple of other summer shirts, and a dress.

Here's what I found:

I always forget how cheap Vogue is, and how huge their rooms of beautiful fabrics are. And really, Evanston isn't that far away, it's just really easy to get lost in. (We have a family tradition of becoming totally lost up there, probably because their streets aren't on a perfect grid, like the rest of Chicago. The Chicago fire helped enormously with street layouts...)
Now I'm off to cut out some shirts to go with my pile of new jeans !
I love you, Vogue Fabrics! May your cutting scissors never dull !
