Fabric in the Spotlight:
If you like lace but are afraid to sew with it, this is the fabric for you! This beautiful brocade has an ecru background with a fuchsia floral lace motif. The larger roses are 4-1/4″ in length and 3-1/8″ in width. The overall hand has good body but is not stiff with just a hint of sheen. Make a great “blue jean” style jacket, pencil skirt or cocktail dress.
