More than a year later.... a fabric purchase

This certainly is not the only fabric I have purchased in over a year, but I think I will start with this one as I bought some last week and had to go and get more today. It's a panel print (one huge flower) and the first piece I had bought, did not quite have a full panel on the second flower, so I could not centre it on the back. Had to go and buy another yard today.

Fabric: probably some sort of viscose/rayon with a crinkle effect
Cost: P350/yd ( one panel is about a yard)
Where: Expressions 245 Glorietta 4, Ayala Centre, Makati. ( There is a row of about 4 small fabric stores near the toilets, below the cinemas)
They have another store in Shangri-La but I didn't see this print there. If you need to make a animal costume for Halloween, both stores have very nice tiger,  leopard and zebra fake fur with a short pile. If I lived in a colder country, I would have bought some to trim a coat!

Now, hopefully having posted this fabric here, I will now actually so it up with a reasonable amount of time!
