Fall Fabrics 2007

96% Cotton 4% Elastine
Designer--Vera Wang
Knits are hot this season. This fun leaf print is perfect for the office or the weekend. Lightweight and slightly sheer with crosswise stretch only, this knit just begs for fashions with lots of draping or ruching. Machine wash cold delicate cycle, lay flat to dry.

98% Cotton 2% Spandex
Designer--Jones New York
What's always in fashion and can be dressed up or down? Denim, of course! The blue in this denim has a slight grey cast-gives it a dressier feel. The denim is medium weight with just enough spandex for comfort. Machine wash cold, dry on perma press cycle.

Sewing Tips: Use clear elastic on knits to stabilize the shoulder and neck areas.
Prewash denim at least twice to take care of any progressive shrinking.
