One of the guys i live with went to an auction that happens every week around here and brought back a 25 yard roll of fabric he bought me for 5 dollars. the fabric is called "creme fraiche" and is 100% polyester. it says its to be washed like delicates and tumble dried on low so its a bit thin but rather nice. it stretches from left to right a bit, but not as much as knit materials.

this site shows the fabric i have http://logantexfabrics.com/swatch_pages/creme-fraiche.html the colour i have is the INK 5.

i was hoping for help finding some patterns to use it on since i have so much. i wear skirts and a lot of styles of shirts but I'm not big into dresses. I'd also love links to items you think would be good to make from this fabric, im rather good at making my own patterns when looking at something that's already been made. Thanks so much Smiley

What couldn't you do? LOL! It's a perfect color and fabric to make a basic wardrobe, especially since they all match.

Simple pieces you don't really seem to need patterns for:
Sleeveless sheath dress
A-line skirt
Mini-skirt
High-waist pencil skirt
Circle skirt (you have all that fabric, right?)

More intense projects:
A tailored jacket or lighter weight trench coat
A coat with a super-full bottom
