Hi,

I have had yellow plaid suiting, preferably a wool-lycra or RPL, on my holy grail list for about 16 months. And I found an RPL at Fabric.com on clearance! Unfortunately, the 6 yards sold out by the time I dragged out my pattern to determine my yardage needs.

Here's what I'm looking for, and I only need 1.5 yards of 45" wide!

Anyone seen anything like this?

I would suggest that you contact fabric.com and ask them if just maybe, somehow, they have that quantity. Or they might be able to refer you to someone who has it. You might Google it as well--I have sometimes found fabric that way. Good luck.

Right print, wrong fiber

Neither of these is perfect, but maybe one might work?

That plaid looks like the MacLeod Tartan, which might help you in your search.
