Before my trip I saw somewhere in blogosphere about big fabric shop in Paris, it was Marché Saint-Pierre, of course I wanted to visit it! I am big fan of big specialize shops! For example I like to visit German supermarket Boesner for art-material when I can!%)) I always bought heaps of papers, notebooks and markers there%)) But this is not about fabrics, sorry!%))
So I planned to visit this marche, we made it together with our Parisian friend and left Semeon somewhere not far away because he is not a fan of big fabric's shop, ha-ha! Not only big, he doesn't like the small ones too because I always ask his opinion about some fabric but he hasn't any!%))
The district near Marché Saint-Pierre is full with different shops so you need a lot of time to visit them all! I have made some purchase in the 3 of them.
The first one was Tissus Reine. This is pretty big shop with good choice of fabrics for clothes and home, with patters department etc. I bought there laces for my polka dot dress(eh, I put it away till next summer). Also I was looking for fusible stay tape but it was too difficult to explain to non sewing friend what I needed(I don't know how it will be in french%).
Then I saw Coupons De Saint Pierre. Ooo, I like such shops where you need to find something in the boxes! Coupon is remnant in French. There were the boxes with fixed price with 3 meters remnants. I chose there 2 pieces - 3m of orange cotton and 3m of navy linen.
Long story short we came to Marché Saint-Pierre. I some much wanted to buy some bright madras print but decided to do this next time!%)) So I chose some brown jersey for winter-fall dress. Also I bought buttons for polka dot dress, I was not very satisfied with my choice but I decided to buy them or else I wouldn't have any buttons! I always imagine something that nowhere exist that why I try to buy red summer shoes 5 years%))
So, these are pictures to this long story!
