Sewing Princess on the road: Z Fabric, Portland, ME – Sewing Princess in viaggio: Z Fabric, Portland, Maine

Z Fabric, Portland, ME

When we decided to put Portland, Maine on our route it wasn’t for any sewing-related matters but for its coast, scenery and great food. Little would I know that I would bump into Z-Fabric and would find a great selection of fabric and patterns.

Quando abbiamo deciso di fare tappa a Portland, Maine non avevo pensato al cucito ma alla costa, i paesaggi e il fantastico cibo. Chi l’avrebbe detto che sarei capitata a Z-Fabric e trovato fantastiche stoffe e modelli.

I even found Shot cotton which was on my shopping list. If you’ve never seen it I can confirm it has a lovely feel and shade. You can see it often on Carolyn’s blog.

Ho anche trovato del cotone di tipo Shot che cercavo da tempo. Se non sapete di cosa si tratti posso dirvi che ha un colore cangiante ed e’ molto morbido al tatto. Potete vedere delle creazioni sul blog di Carolyn.

You can easily see how it was hard for me to decide what fabric to choose for a simple top.

Come potrete immaginare mi sono subito persa tra le stoffe…scegliere quella piu’ adatta per un top e’ stato difficilissimo.

Eventually I had to ask for advice…I am terrible at matching prints.

Alla fine ho chiesto aiuto…sono un disastro a coordinare le stoffe.
Here is one of the patterns I chose. The shop carries Amy Butler, Olivier and S, Serendipity studio, Sew Liberated, Anna Maria Horner and Colette Patterns.

Questa e’ uno dei modelli che ho scelto. Nel negozio ci sono anche quelli di Amy Butler, Olivier and S, Serendipity studio, Sew Liberated, Anna Maria Horner e Colette Patterns.

Below is a sneak peak of the fabrics…and of Colette Crepe dress pattern I’ve been dying to make since it came out. She carried all the new Colette Patterns too, but I had to leave something for others, right? 😉

Sotto si intravedono le stoffe e il modello Crepe di Colette che volevo fare da secoli. Nel negozio c’erano anche di nuovi modelli di Colette Patterns…ma ho lasciato qualcosa anche per le altre :o)

Here is my happy touristy face…

Eccomi qui con la mia faccia contenta da turista…

Sewing Princess at Z Fabric, Portland, MEI’d love to have a store like this where I live…it was great to chat about patterns and fabrics.

Mi piacerebbe avere un negozio come questo dove abito…e’ stato fantastico chiacchierare di modelli e stoffe.
