2016 Finished Handmade – 3

If taobao.com is in Canada, my wallet is going to be in trouble! While my mom was in China earlier this year, I was browsing taobao.com, and instantly fell in love with this fabric. I know it’s a little bit risky to buy fabric online without touching it, but I was willing to take that risk. These were a few of the seller’s pictures: the fabric supposed to be imported from UK, and it’s cotton/linen blend.

Viola! A little bit transparent, but not too bad. I can easily wear a white tank top inside. The fabric does not feel super soft to touch on the body, especially at the seam; might be because of its linen content?
