A Forest Hills neighbor has an offer for you. Hermine Dreyfuss writes:
“If you knit, sew, weave, quilt or have a great dressmaker… this is a golden opportunity to buy designer yarns, fabrics and antique buttons for 1980s prices. For years, The Custom Wardrobe dressed Washington’s classy women in handwoven and hand-knit suits, coats, jackets and dresses as well as scarfs and other accessories. Also featured were travel jackets made from Indonesian batiks and ikats as well as fabrics from around the world. Everything was hand tailored and custom made with fine silk, wool, alpaca, cotton and rayon yarns and the weaving was done locally. The finishing touch included beautiful antique buttons and trim.
“A few years ago, The Custom Wardrobe closed and now the inventory of yarns, fabric and buttons is available at delightful prices given today’s market. Come and browse… the selection has to be seen to be believed!”
Dreyfuss will show her the yarns and fabrics at 2851 Davenport Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, November 7th and the following Saturday, November 14th. You can also schedule an appointment.
