I’m really excited to be sewing for Stylish Fabric’s once a month, and in addition to each post I will be doing a little fabric review of some fabric they choose to send me.
This month Stylish Fabric’s sent me this super fun white stretch knit fabric with gold metallic stripes.
It’s a medium- heavy weight knit fabric, with little holes within the thicker stripes. The ends are finished off with some ribbing which is really nice for a cuff or hem. With each review I want to offer some pattern ideas for the fabric I’m reviewing, that I would actually make for myself.
So for this one, I’m thinking a cardigan or a pull- over sweathshirt! I like the idea of these options because you won’t have to deal with lining anything.
Some cardigan options I have in mind are the Blackwood Cardigan by Helen’s Closet. I have one I have made previously and I wear it all the time. I think this fabric would be great for a more summery Blackwood Cardigan; perfect for layering over dresses and tanks when it’s a little chilly at night.
I also love the idea of a pull-over sweatshirt made out of this fabric. I love the Linden Sweatshirt by Grainline Studio for this. You could use the ribbing along the edge for the cuffs, neckband and hem for a really pretty finish. I picture this worn over a white tank and shorts, again really easy to throw on for a night out at the beach to keep you warm.
One more idea, it could be fun as a swim wear cover-up as a loose or form fitting dress. So many fun ideas for this fabric!
Hope you feel a little more inspired! Thanks for reading along and happy sewing, friends!
