Raspberry Creek Fabrics is my go to for the majority of my fabric needs. I’m lucky enough to live down the street from the “online shop” and good friends with the lovely shop owner Diana. That means I get to go touch, feel, and cuddle the fabric before I purchase. She is very well known to carry quality fabric for fabulous prices so rest assured even though you have to shop online you are in for a treat.
1- The brushed poly is so delicious, soft and scrumptious. I think the mix of color and stripes in my inspiration picture is so fun and in brushed poly it would be like wearing a piece of heaven.
2- The rayon spandex is fabulous and drapey. Perfection for a Waterfall if you ask me. Even more perfection for a Waterfall maternity dress for me…. It’d be like wearing secret jammies. 😉
I’m an international ‘fabric shopaholic.’ I buy fabrics from everywhere around the world but lately I’ve been drawn to some beautiful gems right here on my doorstep. The Fabric Store, Tessuti and the Remnant Warehouse are predominantly Brick and Mortar stores but they do also have an online store which is fantastic especially when you live some distance away and cannot always get there (especially for a sale). Each store has their specialities and their prices do range from afforable to higher end so here are my mixtures of fabric choices:
1. I love viscose jersey, the blend of viscose and elastane makes it soft and drapey which is perfect for the Waterfall top.
2. OMG merino wool jerseys are amazing. I used to think wool is just for winter but no, these are trans-seasonal fabric. They are incredibly soft, comfortable to wear and easy to care for and you can get it in lightweight, mid or heavy.
3. Mixing fabric types makes for a fun and flirty look especially when combining a super soft and drapey viscose jersey with 100% silk chiffon (you can use polyester chiffon which is more afforable but silk is so much more luxurious) for the ruffles.
We hope you have enjoyed this round up and we would love to know what fabric you would choose for your Waterfall!
