Night owl carnival fabric - can you get it in knit/jersey?

Postby Hannahboo » Sun Oct 02, 2011 7:08 am

I am hoping to make a dress for my niece for xmas to match a nappy I am also ordering for her in this fabric

http://www.fabricbuy.co.uk/buy/DW-139/K ... _Carnival#

I can only find it in minky though :-? Does anyone know if it is available in knit/jersey/interlock? I only need about half a metre its just for the top part of a dress. I could use minky if it is not available in knit but not sure how it would sew up with there not being any stretch to it!

Can someone point me in the right direction, or if anyone by any chance has any and has some spare please could you get in touch :widesmile:

Hmmm ...

Found a different colourway in Satin ...http://www.etsy.com/listing/70505924/an ... &ga_facet=

Here it is in cotton - http://www.etsy.com/listing/75460660/ne ... t=supplies

It's called Urban Zoologie & this colourway seems to be referred to as white.
Can't see anything that would have stretch.

HTH

Thanks Zoey, looks like I may be stuck with cotton or minky then! I *think* the dress will still be ok as its only the bodice that I was going to use the owl fabric for so hopefully if I just make it slightly bigger than needed it will fine. Minky might actually be quite nice with it being winter :)

The minkee has stretch in it, so it should work well as the top.
