When we visited San Francisco last year I managed a quick trip to Britex Fabrics where I spied this beautiful quilted photo floral fabric in their remnants section. It was still a splurge so I only bought half a yard. And this past weekend, thanks to some fantastic eggplant french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics, I finally sewed with it.
These two fabrics paired together perfectly for a dressy sweatshirt (that is a legitimate, though contradictory description, right?). I used McCall's pattern M6992 and it was such a quick project. I simply cut two of the front piece--one from the french terry and the other from the quilted. In fact I'm anxious to find a fun plaid to front another sweatshirt.
And I have enough of these two gorgeous fabrics left that one of my girls may end up with a dress or tunic. Just hunting for the perfect pattern given that this quilted fabric doesn't have any stretch.
Happy MLK Monday!
