Powell Floral on Double Brushed Poly

Powell Floral DBP is an ultra soft floral knit fabric is brushed on both sides and feels very soft against the skin. It has 4-way stretch for comfort and ease. Perfect for gathered knit dresses, skirts, stylish tops, t-shirts, and even lightweight active wear such as leggings and yoga pants.  It has 96 % polyester 4 % spandex fiber content with the weight of 180 gsm.

DBP fabric from The Fab Clique Shoppe always make me smile.  I never encountered such fabric from the shop that I don’t like. I swear, they are comfy on skin and you wouldn’t want to take them off your hands once you touch and feel how soft they are.

This fabric will make a perfect combo with Solid Dark Raisin DBP / Solid Mauve DBP / Solid Olive DBP / Black and White Thin Stripes DBP .

For this fabric, I used Ella cami from DS. This pattern was designed for woven fabric, so I went ahead downsized my pattern. It is always fun to play with patterns; My Ella cami has tiny pocket and I did a little color blocking to add a little drama on my top.

I also used WBM pattern, Urban Joggers.  One of my favorite patterns !  Yes, I am a joggers person and this pattern made my eyes pop! I told myself that I need this pattern in my life, so here I am enjoying and I don’t get tired of sewing short, capri or long version of these pants..

Take a look at my project using the wonderful products from Designer Stitch, Wardrobe By Me and The Fab Clique Shoppe.
