I have been lusting after this fabric on EOS since she posted it. Resistance is difficult, with the one key is "what should I make from this fabric?" That is the only reason that is keeping me from purchasing it. I am planning a mini wardrobe, so this will fit into my plan of browns & blacks, then utilizing grays later. I can see it sewn into a jacket, coat, sweater (pullover) and it goes on. But what patterns are best for this???? See fabric below....

Adorable! I love seeing the fabrics other people lust after. So interesting the things people fall in love with!

I don't have a pattern recommendation, but I have a darling RTW tulip skirt made of a tweedy boucle like that, with the godets done in a contrast-print chiffon. Oddly enough, I also have a totally unrelated tweed jacket lined in contrast-print chiffon, with ruffled lapels (no, really, it's adorable) in the chiffon. You can kinda-sorta see the skirt here and here, and you might be able to see the jacket here.

Of course, both of those ideas are rather dependent on you ALSO finding a coordinating chiffon print, but I am nothing if not helpful!


Have fun! That fabric is beautiful! You should get it anyway.

LynnRowe, this is a thicker boucle, will it be too heavy for the neck??? You are a much more experienced than me, so just a thought.

Your skirt & jacket tweeds are very nice! I like the look and they fit you well. Gee, finding 'more' fabric, how sad..... I have looked thru my patterns, but not my Burda magazines. Off to go pull them out. Thanks for the links. Very nice!!
