Kelli and I had a conversation about how hard it is to commit to a fabric that is everywhere, shoulder to foot. I ended up picking this navy blue paisley type fabric because it looked a lot like the one on the front of the pattern. I know, unoriginal, but I am making this one for a swimsuit cover up, so I'll try a little harder next time. I selected a cotton poly blend for it's no wrinkle and easy wipe off abilities. The navy blue is for the interfacing. Because my cottonpoly is quite slippery and flowy I wanted an interfacing with a bit more structure so I went with a stiffer cotton. And by the way this is me, Rian.
