Stores I'm Loving: Chic Fabrics
Chic Fabrics (225 W. 39th Street) has gone from being one of my least favorite stores in the Garment District to my current go-to store for my summer sewing needs. If you're looking for pretty silk prints or cotton knits at bargain prices, this is your store. In the last two weeks I bought a silk print ($10.99/yd) to make a pair of Isabel Marant style trousers for me, and I scored some navy cotton jersey ($3.99/yd) to knock off a BCBG top for a family member. You'll see names like Tahari and Nanette Lepore on the bolts there. If you haven't been to Chic recently, you owe it to yourself to stop by.

I must have bought something from them at some point -- their business card is in my NY notebook! I have no clue what I bought there, and the pics don't jog my memory. Next time, I guess I should write it down! lolReplyDelete
I'm not sure I've ever popped in there. I'll have to put it on my hit list.ReplyDelete
