Fabric in the Spotlight:

This is a delightful floral print that will carry you from winter into spring.  The faille weave
with the raised brocade gives this fabric lots of texture.  The print layout is a winding diagonal
design with a 24-1/2" repeat and individual flowers that measure 7" or 5-1/2".  The colors are
black, white, tender shoots and soft grey.  Make a jacket, skirt or fun trench coat.
