Fabric to sew into a shirt-jacket with fleece lining.

Seems to be consistant with a 34 ppi beating rythm.

After wet finishing the fabric came out very soft. The pattern looks very even. Used a temple. The final photo does not show the colors as bright as they actually are for real though. The lighting has to be just right for photo taking it seems. :)

Good fabric design

...in the pattern and color and currently trendy. It is a fabric I would have brought home when I was a seamstress. Please add a photo of the garment when it is finished.

Yes, I guess you are right

Yes, I guess you are right about the tartan. That is another project I need to weave, I did the Centenial already. :)

A little bump so you get to

A little bump so you get to see this lovely soft fabric wet finished. It's going to be a grand shirt-jacket when I get on with the construction. :)

 

More weaving ahead for more garments. ;)
