Tapestry Fabrics - Garments

A long time ago and far far away I used to work a lot with tapestry fabrics. Today I stopped by a fabric store that specializes in Tapestry Fabric and had a wonderful time looking at and touching the different fabrics.

Way back when - I would make skirts and vests out of tapestry fabric. The prints and the look was just marvelous!! The fabric was easy to work with especially on the serger. AND it held up extremely well after several wearings. The only down side was it needed to be dry cleaned or hand washed.

Thoughts whirled in my head about going down that road again - but no vest - just skirts and perhaps a jacket.

I know this fabric is best for home dec projects - but go look at some of the tapestry (upholstery) fabric and give it some thought. Not meant for childrens clothes - adults only.

And it doesn't wrinkle when you sit down...more good news!
