I found the cutest knit today: black and white stripe on one side with black and white dots on the other. I bought two yards thinking it would be perfect for Vogue 8881.

What do you think?

Yes, yes, yes!

I have seen that fabric and loved it. The store I go to also had it in red/white, dark pink/white, turquoise/white and some other color but it was the black and white that I was drawn to.

I can see so many possibilities with that fabric.

Rats! I was in Joann's yesterday and didn't see the fabric! I think that would be perfect for your Vogue pattern! Can't wait for the review!

It would be nice for a simple jacket that has the reverse side of the fabric for the lapels

It looks like V8881 calls for a 2-way stretch knit. The fabric you purchased only stretches from selvage to selvage, but not both ways. It's not a jersey knit either, but more of an interlock knit. It's more like two jerseys that have been bonded together to form one fabric.

I picked up 1 3/4 yds. of the fuchsia/white that shrunk to
1 1/2 yds. Also, 2 yds. of the red/white shrunk to 1 3/4 yds. I even used the recommended method of care. It's 65% Rayon/35% Cotton so I'm sure that had something to do with it. However, I'd rather have it shrink BEFORE I make it into something.
