It is supposed to be made from stretch fabric, but I didn't. I make dresses look awful, anything that is too flowing, pretty, or made from fine fabric is not good. This pattern has princess seams and a zip in the front . The strong verticals help my 'look'.
I love textured fabrics (are they called jacquards?) This cream cotton I really love, it is thick but has a soft hand. I am planning to make a loose jacket with inseam pockets . I was going to use ' hong kong' seams to make it casual-so that I could wear over jeans/pants, but now I am undecided. I am thinking because the fabric is so beautiful that I should interface the entire jacket and line it; however that will make it much hotter. I always have trouble sticking to plans.
BWOF The pattern
There is this warehouse that has a stack of fabric bought from business that are no longer operating. Most of the material is scary, but I like to go and spend a bit of time dreaming about making a wardrobe only from this fabric. Anyway, this is what I bought the other day.
I have not idea what this is. It is thick and fleecey on the wrong side. This side (right side) has been printed with a metallic/brown black paint. I have already cut out Hot Patterns' Boulevard Cardigan.
