Please note: the price shown is for a single piece of fabric measuring 1 ½ yards.
Okay - this is a little out of my wheelhouse, but my friend Maria, of Maria Denmark Patterns, convinced me to get some. Here's a hint - keep an eye out on her site. That's all I can say for now :) (NAYY, just a friend)
Back on to the fabric, this fabulous swimwear fabric is so cute, and such high quality! When I hosted the Boston ASG chapter recently, the members were shocked to find out it was swimwear fabric. As one put it, "I'd make a dress or top with this!" If you want to stick to the swimwear route, this will look fantastic as Cashmerette's Ipswich Swimsuit. Another fabulous option is swim or exercise leggings made with Jalie's Isabelle. And years ago, I had a turtleneck top that I loved that was made with swimwear fabric (that cost me a pretty penny, I might add). For a look like that, try making it into Kwik Sew 4069.
