I'm constantly having the problem of finding fabric that I love and not being able to find it anywhere so I can make something out of it. Here's the latest:



I really love this exact fabric - I love the orange color and how big the pattern is. Does anyone know of anything similar - whether it's the size of the herringbone pattern or herringbone in interesting colors? I'm finding a lot of black and white herringbone online but no colors.

Hi,
Hart's Fabrics (which I have successfully ordered from) has one wool blend fabric and lots of cotton herringbone fabrics in all different colors. Unfortunately, the cotton ones are probably not what you want to be sewing for the winter. I also found a herringbone wool on NY Fashion's website but it runs around $47 per yard which is high for my budget. I haven't ever ordered from this website.
Good luck.
Kathy

I hope to use up lots of stash in 2013.

Okay, I also found some at Vogue Fabrics online which is $14.95 per yard. The colors are pretty but subtle. I have ordered from this site before and it was successful although quite awhile ago.

Thanks! I checked out the fabric at Vogue and it looks promising. I live right near Vogue in Evanston so I'll have to stop by there and check it out in person. I'm determined to have a wool herringbone skirt for this winter!

I have the same issue in that I find clothing in fabrics I love but can't find the exact fabric.
Here is some at denverfabrics.com that looks close: link
