Macaron Fabric Inspiration

As far fabric for Macaron, I keep picturing mine in some kind of wool or wool blend for fall! The pink and tweed dress on the far right really inspires me to make my macaron with a solid wool bottom and cotton upper in a bright bold print! I mean, it just wouldn’t be “me” if I didn’t throw some quilting cotton in there somewhere, right? 😉
If a fall/winter weight Macaron sounds good to you, then consider fabrics such as wool and wool blends, heavier suiting fabrics, velveteen, and corduroy!
Speaking of corduroy, how cute is this macaron-esque dress?!

Don’t forget! Hart’s Fabric is offering 10% off Macaron supplies with the code sewcolette10!

Isn’t that wonderful?

What fabric are you thinking about for your Macaron?

    LOVE the one on the right!!!

  • I’ve picked a navy blue corduroy and the top is a vintage fabric I bought off etsy. It has little white, red and orange cat silhouettes all over it! I’m really liking that second one from the right. Perfect for the office!

    Ooh, so pretty! I was planning on making a knit Macaron, but am being heavily swayed by velveteen!

    I tried to buy my fabric today from Hart’s but the code is expired. Perhaps there’s something in my stash that will work.

    I am undecided! I would love a black slinky ish version with a lace top, but now that I have made my thurlow shorts in wool suiting I want a dress out of it, similar to what you said about throwing in quilting cotton around the top! Argh! 😛

    Lovin’ that check second from the right. I’d feel like the naughty girl in the office!
