My latest project for the Fabric Mart Fabricista blog is definitely a fabric-driven project...
This designer black and white jacquard double knit fabric that I chose is so unique because of the design and the fabric content. A cotton, rayon and lyrca blend? Yes, please. The fabric is super soft to the touch from the cotton, perfectly drapey from the rayon, and has fabulous stretch and recovery from the lycra. A unicorn blend, folks.
Plus, the design is really striking. The double knit fabric has a large scale black and white design woven into it with overlapping, patchwork-looking designs, ranging from geometric to floral.
I vacillated between different pattern options for my project with this jacquard double knit. Initially, when I saw "double knit," I thought it would have some structure and be perfect for a Fulton Sweater Blazer. But then, once I got my hands on it and had a better feel for the fabric's hand, I changed my mind.
I wanted to do justice to both the huge print and the fabulous drape, so I opted for a swingy t-shirt dress instead. I chose the Madeit Patterns Groove Dress, figuring it would serve as the perfect blank canvas for this dramatic print.
I just love my dress! The combination of a simple pattern and a dramatic fabric was just how I envisioned it! So twirly and cozy and fun.
Thanks to Fabric Mart for yet another killer fabric... read more about my dress over on the Fabric Mart Fabricista blog!
