I love it! The fabric is indeed an odd color and style, but you picked an excellent way to use it.

What fun to see how your vision for this "yucky" fabric came to life. I love these colors - so much so I have a large and small leather bag in it, shoes and most recently earrings. It's a great color and your outfit turned out super. Way to go!

Yikes! I remember this fabric from the 60s - only in orange! It was ugly on windows, much less to wear it! What a simple and fabulous transformation you made of it - makes me wish I had those old orange curtains...

you transformed that ugly fabric! Very nice jacket - I'd totally wear that.

Pairing your "ugly" fabric with a solid and using a simple style resulted in a very attractive pair of garments.

My new favorite color is lime green and all it's near kissin' cousin of apple, and kiwi and on and on, I love your 'results' and a swan has emerged... you have my vote.ll

Great jacket, great vision! really love it (I am really into vibrant green this year!)

Ok, I believe! That was an ugly fabric (or at least, I would have had a hard time figuring out what to do with it). But your outfit is NOT ugly at all. The texture of the fabric makes a great jacket, and it was perfect that you found the matching solid fabric.

This looks really clasy, not at all 'ugly'. I can see why you fell for the vibrant colour, the textured surface works with that toning plain.

I love how this turned out!

Your fabric is indeed ugly all alone. However, once you sewed it into this beautiful cardigan, it is lovely.

Looks fantastic in really great fabrics. I like the contrast/matching of the fabrics, which really add a couture touch. Anything but ugly!

Wow, a vintage pattern that looks so up to the minute. I love it.

Great job! This looks great. How lovely to remember your mother in this way, I think that is so sweet and so gorgeous what you have done with it.

It does look like curtain/drapery fabric. I like the way it looks with the matching fabric and being worn as a set as you have done with it.

Great choice of ugly fabric! At first, I thought it was old drapery fabric from the 60's.

I REALLY like what you did with your "ugly" fabric. The pairing of the two fabrics are works great and the overall color is very "in" right now. What a transformation from the original picture to the final garments. Good luck with the contest!
