Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Fabric

Tokyofive.com  $58.95 shirt
Have you seen those plaid shirts with the check accents on the collars and pockets?  Until now, it has been nearly impossible to find fabrics that will allow you to get this look.  We have an exciting collection that will blow your mind!


Vogue Fabrics proudly offers Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Shiritings.  Super soft, lightweight cotton fabric is double woven with plaid on one side and a check pattern on the other.  You can use either side as the face. 



You can easily re-create those cool camp shirts using the same fabric and reversing the sides.  For the super thrifty, whip up an elastic waist skirt that you can wear reversibly for two looks in one garment.  Also try stitching up a full skirt, slitting the side hem to the knee, and tacking back the corners to showcase both sides.  How about making some clam diggers – full legged  pants with elastic waist that go down to the mid-calf – and rolling up the hem to reveal the reverse.  Create summertime pajamas – the SOFT face is an OMG climbing into bed at night!

If you are a Civil War reenactor in the South, consider creating summer garb from this breathable cotton.  It is so lightweight, you can use the German Plastic boning instead of steel to lighten the weight of your dress in the oppressive heat.  Construct the dress from the plaid, and use the check for the contrast waist band and accents at the hem and sleeves. 

Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Shirtings are available on VogueFabricsStore.com.   Several colors available.

The Skinny on Thinsulate

Dana Marie 1032 What if we told you there was one fabric that could keep you warm outside, indoors, in your bed - and it would totally go with everything? What is it?  It's 3M™ Thinsulate™ . This is an "interlining" which gets sewn between two fabrics to form a protective barrier from the elements. The next time you sew a winter coat, sandwich Thinsulate between the fashion fabric and the lining to get that extra layer of protection from wind and biting cold.  Thinsulate™ Insulation Type C offers about one and a half times the warmth of down and nearly twice the warmth of high loft fiberfill insulations when equal thicknesses are compared.  It is designed for use where a thin compressible insulation is important. It is breathable, moisture-resistant and can be washed or dry cleaned depending on individual manufacturers' recommendations. Here's what 3M has to say about their Thinsulate: "3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation is used in your jack

Medical Scrub Fabric for Nurses, Doctors, Orderlies and Lab Techs

Nurses, doctors and health care professionals who are required to wear scrubs have a good idea of what works and does not work for them in the regulation attire.  The " one-size-fits-all " approach to hospital issued scrubs just does not cut it sometimes, you know? Do you relate to any of these statements? You need a larger pocket for your stethoscope. You won’t wear scrubs with less than two shirt pockets. You like lots of pockets on the pants like cargo pants. You can’t stand pockets on the pants because they pull the pants down. You want a longer scrub top to cover your hips & "thangs" better. You work so hard your side seams are starting to burst. You need something shorter/longer because of your height. You need a fuller cut in the bust, but you don’t want to look like you are wearing a tent at the waist. OK, OK, OK….. You get the idea.  We all have our preferences.  So, what to do?

Leather, Suede and Vinyl - Fashion's Hottest Fabrics

On recent trips to New York City and to the French Riviera, we saw store windows filled with exciting items for men, women, kids and home décor created from suede, vinyl and leather .  Jackets included trench coats and slickers, bomber jackets, and cropped styles with metal accents.  Shirts featured classic button-down styling for men, while for women the shirts, skirts and dresses were filled with cut work allowing brilliant contrast colors to pop through from the back.  Attaché cases, upscale messenger bags and purses were accented with metal and rhinestone .   Shoes featured updated clean lines for classic loafers and pumps, while boots were ankle or knee length with metal zipper accents.  The hats and gloves had simple lines, and the belts were filled with metal grommets or spikes.  It was really incredible how many of these items there were in the boutiques and department stores.  When you use synthetic materials, you get many affordable options for creating your own chi
