Fabric for Pirates :: September 2021 Reveal

Sep 15, 2021

Y’all, I CANNOT believe that we are halfway through the month already!!  The only thing getting me through this harsh realization of time flying by is that I get to share this month’s Fabric for Pirates!!  It’s a good one too…..but then they all are, so who am I kidding?

Judy and I have been excitedly waiting to be able to send out a camo print to everyone.  Just like the leopard gorgeousness that went out in January, we know that these prints aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.  But we also really love the prints ourselves….so we take the risk and send it anyway.  So far, we’ve had nothing but love come back our way, and I’m hoping that people loved it like we do!

Even if camo isn’t your “thing”, this fabric should be.  I’ve been excited about sending out the fabric base to everyone, since it’s delicious all on it’s own.  The fabric is a “disperse knit”, and the best way we can think to describe it is that it’s kind of like a spun jersey knit.  It’s soft, has a beautiful drape, decent stretch, and the prints are always kinda faded / kinda vintage looking.  I think they’re gorgeous and I love wearing this fabric for tees!

Here are the official details of the fabric itself:
Camouflage Disperse Knit
Width: 58/60″
GSM: 160.00
Contents: 62% POLYESTER 33% RAYON 5% SPANDEX

I thought it would be fun to mash some patterns together.  And it was.  I was right, haha.

I took the sleeves off of the new Rainbow Dress pattern (in short sleeve this time!) and added it to the body of the Favorite Tee.  If you haven’t caught on yet, the Favorite Tee lives up to it’s name in my wardrobe.  It’s a favorite for sure.  I actually wish the fabric was a little stiffer for these sleeves, so it’d pronounce the “poof” a little more, but I still really like the combo of the two patterns and you’ll most likely be seeing more of this from me in the near future.
