New Fabric Mart knit fabric

You know when you buy on line that sometimes when the fabric arrives it is not quite what you thought it was going to be.  I am truly happy to report that my latest fabric purchase from Fabric Mart was even better than I expected.  The quality of this knit was superior and I believe it will sew well.

One piece I purchased was a border print along the selvage with a different print on each side.

The camera does not do justice to the bright colors of the blue.  This will be interesting to sew.  I am definitely thinking a dress and using the border at neckline as well as hemline.   I have not determined the pattern yet, though I am sure I have something in my pattern stash.

The next two fabrics will be used to make the Marcy Tilton Vogue dress pattern that many sewist have been stitching up.
This is a vivid orange and matches perfectly with the striped fabric.  Again photo does not do justice to the fabric.  I think I need to plan a sewing vacation soon.  More sewing later.

  6. Beautiful fabrics. The orange combo should work really well with the Marci dress. That's on my list for fall as well.
