Mireille – Fabrics

Isn’t choosing fabric the best part of a new project? Today I’m sharing my roundup of some beautiful fabrics that would be great for Mireille!

Mireille is sized for knits (although you could go up a size or two if you find a good woven that is just to irresistible). You’ll want to look for a lightweight jersey with a good amount of stretch. Your fabric should also have a nice drape so those kimono sleeves are nice and flowy!

There are so many great options, but here are few that I just love!

Tie-Dye

Tie-Dye is such a fun print and it is a great complement to the boho glamour style of Mireille! Not to keen on the colors or patterns available? This is perfect chance to try out your dyeing skills (I’ve been wanting to try out some natural dyeing processes).

Black and White

Black and white is always a classic combo. These shades can turn your Mireille into a great top to wear with trousers or a pencil skirt for work. It also makes your top versatile enough to wear to work and then in the evening with jeans or shorts!

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones add a touch of glamour to clothing. They’re also the perfect tone to make Mireille a great piece to transition from summer to fall to winter.

What fabric are you going to use to make your own Mireille?
