Subject: Great fabric deal (they added more 9-5) Date: 8/30/12 10:24 AM

Marc Jacobs cotton double stripe suiting

I ordered 10 yards and it just arrived. The color is less "navy" and more "blue" but it's fine.

I priced muslin at Hobby Lobby last week - almost $5 a yard.

I snapped up 10 yards of this to make a trial jacket, skirt, and pants. I'm going to try to do my best though and hopefully end up with some more clothes I can actually wear.

Wow--what a find!! One of the pictures looks like it has a little sheen to it; would you say that's the case? (I'm trying to decide if it would be appropriate for Renaissance wear. It can be hard to find great fabric in natural fibers, and I love the texture of this one. Of course, by the time I come back to see your answer, it will all be sold out! LOL)

I'd say it's matte - I figured it would be worth the money even I just used it as muslin.

It's gone from 40 yards available to 10 yards since I posted. If you haven't ordered, I'd hurry!

Thanks for the post --- I jumped on the site and ordered 6 yards, and a few other things that I really don't need....rec'd a call from FM within about an hour telling me they were down to 2 pieces for a total of 6.75 yards. They asked if I wanted what they had, and I said yes; so it sounds like I got the last of it.

You're welcome Kathi.

I was stalking their site again this morning and noticed they have 35 yards more in stock for $1/yd.
