I hope I don't offend anyone and that I'm not overstepping here...but, I would really like to know what you guys think of this fabric:



It is a sueded silk broadcloth.  I absolutely love the print and it's heaven to touch.  I've an opportunity to buy a bunch of this but sometimes I think my tastes are out there.  If you hate it, please say so - after all, I didn't design it!  :tounge:   The colors are burgundy, chocolate brown, khaki, navy, charcoal.

I just don't want to get stuck with a roll of something that no one but me likes.

THanks!

I LOVE it, but my taste is often over the top too!  And this from someone who doesn't love brown.

Did you make the Kimono?

Yes, Sandra, I did.  I made this one for myself but now DH loves the fabric so maybe I should have made it for him instead!  If I do decide to buy more I will make him a camp shirt.

I think it's great, Gigi.  Very Steven Sprouse!

Gigi, I love it too.  It would look great in any of Lois Erickson's patterns.  I just bought her Button Down pattern, do you have enough to share?:biggrin:

Just offered to make a Kimono for my PolishAmerican husband and got a big grin & "Don't do it now, you've got too much for the company" and was wondering about the fabric...this would be perfect.  Just the ticket  
:winkgrin:
Can I order now?

Okay, I will make a 'phone call first thing tomorrow to see how much I can order.  Thanks so much for all your input - I'll let you know what I find out.  Geez, I can see the rolling eyes on DH and DS already as I bring yet another roll of fabric into the house.  They were both away last week when I did lots of buying.  Right now the pool room is starting to look like a fabric shop!  I keep assuring DH that yes, fabric really is also leaving the house but I think he has his doubts. :tounge:

Gigi, not my taste, but it looks good in the kimono you made. I like the base cloth---sueded silk broadcloth.  Any other prints in that fabric?

I like the print but not the colors.  On the other hand it's not something I could wear because the print is big and I'm a shrimp.
