Spending a few days in Toronto recently it turned
out that they have a nice choice of fabric stores.

Could not visit all of them, and the size of the luggage was somewhat limited, but the following two had a great choice of very nice material - Affordable textiles and Designfabrics (even more here the best fabric stores in toronto)
Four different fabrics were bought, and the most likely is that at least 3 of them will turn out to be trousers 
 The fourth will most likely be a dress, and maybe even a jacket (should be enough material to do this).
Except for buying fabrics and visiting second hand / vintage stores, there were other interesting things to do: Visiting "Toronto Steam punk fair" (admit I did not really know that this existed) with some nice singing 
or walking along Lake Ontario

After that it was time to work for another two weeks, and then - holiday. This means that there are other things that has to be done, other than sewing ...
