I have just been to Nicole Xavier in China Town, always dangerous. This tiny store packs a mighty punch as they cherry pick the fabrics they offer. If you visit Singapore it’s well worth a visit as it’s in the Peoples Park Complex where the whole 2nd floor is dedicated to fabric.
This brocade would make a stunning skirt like the Valentino dress in my previous post or a coat.
I have used this fabric before and it handles beautifully but needs careful pressing.
I also managed to get some silk/cotton mix perfect for lining for only S$12 (£6.50).
