    Hi,

    I saw all the projects that you posted over the last few days. I like your style and the fabrics that you chose :-). I’ll be visiting Madrid in April. Do you know if there is a neigborhood with lots of fabric stores? I love to buy fabrics abroad….

      I know there is this huge store called “Tejidos Paredes” calle Atocha, 30 in Madrid. -that´s the city center. You can go there after visiting El Prado museum ;)
      they have this web:
      www.tejidosparedes.net
      Never been there but they told me it´s great
      I buy mostly at the flea market, and for more special thing at the regular fabric store.
      Hope this was helpful

      Thank-you, the neckline is gorgeous. White on white is always so beautiful and classic.
