- Gray Marled Shetland Flannel - If you've noticed a flannel theme this month, you're not wrong. We really do love this cotton fabric for blazers! But how could you not? This simple gray cotton looks just like wool melton but without the itchiness and weight. Any blazer you make out of this fabric will look bespoke, even if you're a beginner. And the medium gray will pair with everything from jeans to skirts to dresses. You'll basically want to wear this all season long. A wonderful, and versatile, fabric!
- Navy Blue Embroidered Jacquard - If you've ever wanted to sew with brocades, but felt intimidated, this is the fabric for you. Lightweight, with a finely textured floral pattern in the weave, this jacquard has the look of brocade, but in a broadcloth, so far fewer worries about floats and seam fraying. In a beautiful navy, this fabric will sew up into a blazer that looks almost like a smoking jacket. It's opulent yet modern, and who could ask for better than that?
- Kale Green Tweed-Look Shetland Flannel - When planning these boxes, I knew I wanted to use green. Fall is always about orange, red, and yellow, but I always think about dark greens as the contrast to these. The pine trees standing out against the fall leaves. So when I saw this flannel, with a faux tweed yarn-dyed print, I knew I had to use it. A gorgeous color and a gorgeous fabric option!
