I am finding I have serious questions that Mr. G.T. (Green Thumb) just doesn’t care to answer … so I have decided to turn to you. What do you say?
I have this fabric – actually lots of this fabric. Specifically, an “Addison Jersey Knit Chevron” in Hunter green and in Red. 85% polyester and 15% rayon. There is a bit of a gold thread running through them so sometimes they look a bit shiny. Three meters each – I told you I had a lots. What can I say, it was a good price!
It is a big print. If you look at this photo, the chevron stripe is about 2″ from tip to tip and about 3″ tall. My fabrics are light and summery, but the print might be too much?
I had nothing in mind when I bought it. (What can I say, it was a really good price!) I bought it, packed it away and never thought of it again. Then when I was cleaning up/putting away my supplies and fabric stash the other day (I actually threw out some small remnants that were too small to be useful.), I realized that I knew what every piece in my fabric stash was destined to be “some day”, except for these two “black sheep”.
I have found this photo, a possibility, and pinned it to my Pinterest board so that I don’t forget.
Now ditch those dumb gladiator sandals. I know I am not a “Forever 21” model (even when I was 21, I was not Forever 21 – and that has been perfectly fine with me), but this made me think of my own pair of culottes for the summer, worn with a solid coloured top? (no belly showing though!) My fabric is light so wearing something pant-like wouldn’t be a problem. The Forever 21 chevron print is even bigger than mine, but not as bright as mine. But I just don’t know:
- are either of these fabrics destined for summer culottes?
- if so, should I use the darker Hunter green or the red?
- if not, what should I make out of these fabrics?
I JUST NEED SOME IDEAS! I can’t imagine having these two fabrics packed away in a box without a destiny! Any thoughts? Leave me a comment, tell me where to find a photo, a pattern, have you made something with a chevron print I should peak at?
I am away in Vancouver helping my sister with fabric choices for a MOG (Mother of the Groom) dress, but I will check back here periodically to see what you have come up with! Please help!
In the meantime, Happy Sewing!
