I've decided I need a jacket to go with one of my Renaissance dresses, and I think a nice deep dark teal or peacock blue would look good. I'm pretty open in terms of fabric--it should be jacket weight and if possible, natural fibers--wool flannel, corduroy, velveteen, etc. I'd like some texture to it, so probably not linen or cotton twill. And this is actually going to be a bit of a wearable muslin (I have some embroidered linen I've been saving for a similar project)... so I'd love for it to be under $15/yard, if possible!

Has anyone run across anything in their Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping that might fit the bill? Enable me!

Thanks!!

This one from Fabric Mart is the only thing I remember seeing recently...unfortunately it is silk and probably not heavy enough for your
purposes...pretty though!

Check www.fabricationsonline.com. I know they have it in wool crepe. They send free swatches!

Izzie, I saw that silk, too!! LOL

MS--GREAT link! I (think) I'm glad you waited to share that site until after I'd already bought my grey wool shetland from Fabric Mart. They have the dark charcoal grey flannel I've been looking for for two years--but it costs over twice what I paid at FM! Whew!

I just dyed some fabric a sort of peacock turquoise blue using Dylon dyes from JoAnn's. If you find a natural fiber fabric, like maybe wool, you might try dying it. I put two packages of Bahama blue into a rubbermaid tub 1/3 full of very hot water. I added salt and let it dissolve, then added the dye. Once the dye was dissolved, I added my wet clean fabric. I stirred regularly during the first 30 minutes and then off and on for the next hour and 30 minutes. It came out great. My fabrics were a linen jacket with cotton lining and some cotton shirting.

Definitely not under $15... But if you don't find a source, consider a wool crepe from Linton Tweeds. I bought the sample pack and there was a beautiful deep teal.

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

Huzzah!! I have my peacock blue velvet! Well, it's not in hand yet, but it's ordered.

The week before Christmas, DH and I were at World Market (clear, clear across town; I get there every three or four years), and they had a whole line of home dec accessories in what they call "Mallard green" cotton velvet:


Best of all, there were curtains! (the pillows are more true to color) Alas, they were a little pricey, at around $16/yard (they're actually conveniently 54" wide, so it was easy to calculate :D), so I passed.

And then my MIL gave me some Xmas stash money, and some friends suggested I sign up for email coupons... and today, everything all came together! I had a 10% discount, the curtains went on sale, and now I have WAY WAY MORE peacock blue velvet on its way to me than I can possibly use. I can't wait!
