New Fabrics

I have a great deal of trouble trying to get decent fabrics that I like. I will only go up to £20 a metre and no more for fabric.......I am not experienced enough to spend lots of money on fabric, I make too many mistakes.
Today my husband, daughter and I took a trip to John Lewis to see if I could find some decent fabric......well I did and because I don't go there very often I really splashed out and spent £182, I won't be going back for some time lol lol
I got two lots of suiting in a light grey and chocolate brown for trousers.....two lengths of fabric for blouses to match.....a light beige viscose for more trousers for the organzer for interlining and a press cloth and some white lingerie satin for two camisoles......also two weights of iron on interfacing.
I also went to the Janome counter to stock up on machine needles and they didn't have any.....apparently Janome and Elna have merged and have been in a mix up over machine needles, in all of the John Lewis stores there is only a few packs of Janome machine needles, can you believe it.
I am quite tired now but tomorrow I will take photographs of my fabrics if I have time.
In an earlier post I made a wearable muslin of a Sandra Betzina cross over top. I have got some light grey stretch cotton so I am going to make make this top again........this is going to be my next project......hopefully.
