JoAnn’s has some beautiful stretch twill in a fun, bright floral pattern. A bit out of my comfort zone, but I’m trying to expand some.
It was about $17/yard, though, so I just admired from afar…until recently, when I stumbled on it online and saw it for $7.99/yard. I kept it up on my phone, and stared at it, mulling over what I would even do with the fabric, and when is this sale going to end? (Seriously. The stuff is still on sale, y’all. I bought the last of it from one of my local JoAnn’s.) I looked at dresses, but then looked at the fabric again and decided the print was too big for a dress. I’m only 5’3, so I err on the side of caution with prints. Then, I looked at skirts. I found the perfect one, but won’t post that until I get it and make my skirt.
The twill is amazing. It looked just like it did on my screen. It is a little lighter than I had hoped, I thought it would be light/medium weight. It is lightweight, but surprisingly not sheer. I think I’ll still line it, though. The weight allows for a nice drape. Do note, there isn’t a lot of stretch. It’ll likely make a waistband a bit more comfortable, but I don’t know that I would have even known it was stretchy if it hadn’t been mentioned on the website.
I prefer cotton, but this is polyester with a smidgen of spandex. It has a nice feel, despite the fiber content.
That’s a standard sized glue bottle, better size reference than my hand.
I plan to use a lovely blue piping with the skirt. I haven’t decided on a blouse, though. With so many color options in the fabric, that might take a while!
With a sales items included coupon, I got two yards of this for less than $14. Great deal. As much as I love this fabric, because it’s polyester and thin, I wouldn’t have been willing to pay full price.
