Stash increase - I may or may not have a fabric shopping problem...

Well, you remember someone did a "No shopping" chalenge recently? Somehow my pendulum swung to the other side now. This month I bought a lot of fabric!

Jersey galore
Most of these pretty jerseys were bought from a webshop I usually hate because they are not reliable and rather expensive. But winning the soccer world cup they had some cool offers and I caved in. Now I own grey, black, teal and purple cotton jerseys, a grey and a black linen jersey...

... and two more jerseys I bought from Neisella (one of the already went into the shirt I showed Monday, so that will not throw off my stash posts):

Tafeta
I also bought some plain black and bright magenta tafeta for making yet another Victorian outfit!

Fabrics I sent back
I also bought purple velvet which ended up being rather grey-brownish and I'm still not sure about the very magenta tafeta which was nowhere near the nice bordeaux colour it looked like on the internet pictures. Should I send it back? What do you think? At least this saved me some money...

Mmmm that maroon on maroon tapestry type material is just lovely! And taffeta is always nice!

@ Laura Morrigan: I could not understand how Neisella could give that beauty away!

@ linnea-maria: Thanks, I'll give my very best to make it quick.
