I like this dress and fabric I have a pattern that will probably work, but after checking several fabric sites have yet to find the fabric.

If anyone comes across this, would you let me know where.
Thanks

Kathy

Here are the results of a google image search for 'yards blue and white linen.'

You can also try a similar search by using the words 'yards blue and white cotton,' etc.

Good hunting!

I saw this fabric in your search results and really liked it:


But it's upholstery-weight :(

Hi Kathy,

This doesn't have the texture, and seems a bit paler, but I think captures the essense of your inspiration: Apple Annie

Today at my JoAnn I saw a large-scale blue and white plaid in a seersucker that jumped right out at me as being very reminiscent of your inspiration dress (Yes, I shop for other PR members when I go out; doesn't everybody?! LOL). I can't find it online, and I've forgotten the price, but it's part of the 50% off Firefly Frenzy sale this week, and was right up front in my store. It was definitely no more than $10/y, and probably much less than that.

ETA: It was similar to this, except in a plaid.

I did find a linen/cotton blend that is super soft. The dress sure looks different in a plus size but will be great for hot evenings.

Kathy, that fabric is beautiful (and I think yours is prettier than the inspiration dress)! Where did you find it? It looks like it would make fabulous summer pants.
