The rest of the Vera Wang fabric I ordered arrived on Tuesday. More beautiful, interesting and surprising fabrics.
The amber brocade is another large scale floral print. The fabric itself is similar to the lavender floral I got in the previous shipment. On first glance, it reminded me of 1970's fiberglass drapes, but it's growing on me. I'm thinking of making a pencil skirt from it.
The other brocade I got was the one Vera used for this skirt. I love it! The colors are gorgeous and rich, and the fabric softened and texturized after a trip through the washer and dryer (cold water wash and delicate dry cyle). Originally, I planned for this to be a skirt, but I've changed my mind. I think it would make a great little jacket.
I'd describe the fabric above as a jacquard taffeta. The circles are woven into the fabric. It washed and dried fine, but it does seem fairly water resistant. So it's going to be used with this pattern, the view with the hood:
This green is a stretch twill that will be perfect for pants and/or a skirt.
This fabric was the bulk of the order. It's a knit poly/lycra. I realize it doesn't look like much but it will be perfect as a lining for those tissue knits that are just a bit too sheer.
There was one last piece I didn't grab a picture of so that one will have to wait until I can photograph it. It may be my favorite of all, a "chiffon" with abstract blue flowers.
