Do You Mix Fabrics?


When you get ready to make a garment, do you consider multiple fabrics, or is your first instinct to make the whole thing in one fabric? When I'm helping students, using more than one fabric almost never comes up.


I often think of using a print that is louder than I'd like to wear on my whole body by putting it on the skirt portion of a dress and pairing it with something tamer on the upper half. I find it's a good way to use those kinds of prints in my stash. It's also a great way to use fabrics that you don't have much of. How about you? Do you like to mix and match? Or do you prefer to use a single fabric?
