Trims from Italy!

I am very excited about my new Trims section at Phat Fabric (link).  A couple of weeks ago I went to the LA textile show and came across a lovely Italian trim booth.  I had been wanting to carry trims for some time now, but I hadn't seen any that I took an affinity to.  That is until I saw these...


and these...


The last one is my favorite!  I've already made something that I can't wait to share with you all this week (tute included).  It's Anthro inspired.  And speaking of Anthro inspired, take a look at this shirt I bought from Anthro some time ago...


Recognize that trim?  It's practically the same cotton lace trim from the first set of pics (except slightly wider).   When the rep from the trims booth pulled out that specific trim, I instantly remembered my green Anthro shirt.  As we all know, anything Anthro looking is a friend of mine. It's amazing how sewing a trim on a basic shirt can... um... Anthro-ize it. 

Also, the shabby flower trim is very similar to the trim I used on my daughters Easter skirt.

I feel like a little girl in a candy store.  So dang exciting!
