Fabric in the Spotlight:
 Brocade-Fuchsia Rose

Sku #PVA3177
Brocade-Fuchsia Rose
Designer-Phillip Lim
If you like lace but are afraid to sew with it, this is the fabric for you!  This beautiful brocade has an ecru background with a fuchsia floral lace motif.  The larger roses are 4-1/4" in length and 3-1/8" in width.  The overall hand has good body but is not stiff with just a hint of sheen.  Make a great "blue jean" style jacket, pencil skirt or cocktail dress.
