Imagine Bed Bath and Beyond (or rather, the bath and home section of Target) got together with Joann’s and had a child which they then stuffed into the top two floors of a large shopping centre. They named it Lincraft. (And my child came running when she heard the camera turning on.) Lila and I poked around Lincraft today, so I thought I’d add it to my reviews of Brisbane fabric stores.
You can see they have piles of rolls of fabric everywhere, and most of it is not worth bending over for a closer look. I dig around anyway, because I’m an optimist and some of my most unique fabric finds have come from Lincraft.
The lace section at Lincraft never lets me down. They have every type of lace I ever looked for, and then some:
I did bring home two delicious pieces of cotton and rayon jersey for a color-blocked Bow Tie Dress. Weirdly, these two colors don’t want to be photographed- it’s more a sky blue and deep lilac.
(Thanks for all your tips and advice regarding the troublesome but gorgeous contrast bands on the Megan dress. I *might* have found some suitable sateen today, but I have to leave the swatches on the fridge so I can see them for a few days before I decide.)
