More Double Talk

Here’s one of our latest fabrics to come into stock.  First of all, we love the color combination… sort of an updated 70’s blue and green theme. The face is a soft lime, the base, a mallard blue.  The construction is a double weave which meants that both the top and the base are separate cloths except in the areas where the weave reverses itself to form the design. This is sometimes called pocket weave or pocketing.  You’ll see why when you look at the picture below.

We snipped the pocket so that you could see the base cloth.  In the lower right corner of the photo, you’ll see the reverse side. This would be easily adapatable to using both sides of the fabric in your garment.

The design, although large, is tempered a bit by the two-tone color story.  We love it!

By the way, the name comes from Gulliver’s Travels.

    This fabric looks somewhat vintage to me. I have purchased vintage style fabric and it really makes for beautiful garments from dresses to skirts, shirts and many other things.
    Some decorator fabric that is useable for drapery also makes for fabulous garment making. Vintage style decorator fabric is not only beautiful but hard wearing…..of course you don’t choose the really heavyweight stuff. I have bought some of this decorator fabric online at http://www.iluvfabrix.com/decorator-fabric/index.html
