This selection of high-quality fabrics comes from my own collection over the years. I have more fabric than I'll ever be able to sew, and I want to spend my sewing time on fabric that really speaks to me now - and I also want the same for you. While I've given you a suggestion or two about garment types in case it sparks your imagination, these fabrics are just waiting for you to bring them to life with your own ideas. I really want to see these fabrics in someone's hands who will use and enjoy them, so I've set the prices very reasonably. I hope you find a gem that you can't wait to get sewing on.

Visit this page frequently! We'll be offering more selections on a regular basis, including great fabrics for pants and skirts. I'll post on my Facebook page whenever new fabrics have been added, so please like the Sarah Veblen Clothing Originals page to stay up to date on fabrics I'm offering from my collection.

Wool Herringbone

3 yards, 60" wide

This classic herringbone gets its pizzazz from the combination of a beautiful olive green and a tan with strong gold undertones. The surface of the fabric feels wonderfully soft and inviting (the complete opposite of a scratchy wool tweed). I'd call it mid-weight, but edging significantly towards lightweight. In the 1990s, I'd have made a skirt and vest, but with the soft hand of the fabric, I now keep picturing a jacket with a peplum or a pretty pleat.

Crushed Velvet - Unknown Fiber

2-1/4 yards, 30" wide

This fabric feels divine and just asks to be pet. It's a rich warm beige with a pinky brown undertone, and it would make an adorable shrug, or edgy skirt, or....?

$26.00 for piece

Lightweight Ultrasuede

1-3/4 yards, 46" wide

Lightweight Ultrasuede is thinner, softer, and more pliable than standard Ultrasuede. I think of this piece as rich butter yellow, not quite as tan as your typical chamois that you'd clean a car with. Remember, Ultrasuede is machine washable, so no need to hesitate due to the light color. Skirt with just a little flip at the hem, a dynamite shell or blouse...hmmmm, so many possibilities!

Striped Cotton Corduroy

2-1/4 yards, 44" wide

While this bottom-weight corduroy has body, it is not stiff, and it would make great pants or a skirt. It's wonderfully rich looking in tones of brown, gold, and black, and it could be paired with so many different fabrics and colors. I've always thought it would be fun to combine it with lace. Pre-washed. Works nicely with fabric #32.

$19.00 for piece

Cotton Twill

1-5/8 yards, 60" wide

A classic cotton twill on the soft and light-weight end of the bottom-weight spectrum. It's perfect for pants, skirt, or sheath dress. It's pre-washed, and the mustard color is muted enough that it reads as a neutral color. It looks terrific with fabric #31.

Brocade with Stunning Motif

1-5/8 yards, 51" wide

The face of this fabric has a midnight navy ground with bold deep gold floral and geometric motifs...and an occasional flash of bright green and metallic gold in a small floral motif. The back of the fabric is, of course, the opposite, with an occasional bright green and metallic gold stripe. The fabric is surprisingly thin (not at all bulky) with a hint of crispness. I got the fabric for an evening skirt, but I think it would be fascinating to make a jacket using both the face and the back of the fabric. Fiber content is unknown, but as with many brocades of this beautiful quality, I suspect it's a rayon blend.

Red and Black Leopard Print on White Background

2-3/8 yards, 47" wide

How much fun is this bottom-weight fabric! It's cotton with a small amount of spandex in the cross grain. It would make a great looking unlined jacket, skirt, sheath dress, or capris. Pre-washed.

$18.00 for piece

Black Nylon Stretch Tulle with Motifs

2-1/8 Yards, 53" wide

Well, some fabrics are just hard to describe! This fabric is funky and pretty all at the same time. The rag-type motifs are sewn on, so they won't fall off. Their irregular pattern is charming, and the coloration is soft and delightful. There is spandex in the cross grain, with 4" stretching to 6" in the cross grain, and 4" stretching to 4-1/2" in the length of grain (almost stable). Pre-washed.

Scarf-Length Dusty Blue Silk with Automotive Design

3/4 Yards, 44" wide

I bought this to make boxers for my auto-shop-owner son-in-law, but would rather put my time elsewhere now (especially his two cute little daughters!). There are two scarf-lengths each measuring 22" long, with two places on each scarf blank that says "Harley Davidson V Twin." This would make a whimsical scarf or shell blouse with how beautiful the blue color is. And of course perfect for any Harley Davidson owner! Pre-washed.

Black Jacquard with Spandex

3-1/8 Yards, 38" wide

The amount of spandex in the cross grain (2" pulls to 2-1/2") adds a wonderful soft structure to this tone-on-tone jacquard. Rather than being a typical poly silky, it has enough structure to make a gorgeous shirt with collar and collar stand, or a lightweight dress. I'm not positive of the fiber content, but I'd guess poly, rayon, and spandex. Pre-washed.

$19.00 for piece

Floral Brocade

7/8 Yards, 55" wide

Some of you might recognize this piece of rayon brocade - I made a jacket out of it that has a purple suede collar that can be swapped out for periwinkle fur pompoms. Since it's wide, there's enough for a skirt. I love the combination of clear deep purple, periwinkle blue, and hints of muted orange in the flowers.

Nubby Textured Novelty

2 Yards, 65" wide

I never know how to describe this type of fabric! There is a thin fiber that is obviously a knit structure, with a thick fiber that is woven through the knit, so it looks more like a woven. There is give in the cross grain (2" pulls to 2-5/8"), but it doesn't stretch out of shape. Fiber is probably a blend, possibly some wool, rayon, poly??? It's delightfully soft to the touch. It would make a fabulous topper that could be worn inside in cold weather and as a jacket in the fall and spring.

$18.00 for piece

Plaid Bouclé

2-1/2 Yards, 58" wide

The epitome of spring! The primary colors are clear (but not stark) white, and a soft lavendery-pink, with hints of aqua and pink. Oh my, this description of the colors sounds garish, but it's really so delicate and pretty. It's perfect for a lightweight jacket, and appropriate for a French-style jacket. Fiber content is likely a rayon blend.

(SV-C-65)

$34.00 for piece

Cotton Twill with Spandex

1-5/8 Yards, 54" wide

Another great spring / summer / early fall fabric that's a perfect weight for a straight or A-line skirt, sheath dress, pants or capris, or even a jacket. It has just a hint of spandex in the cross grain (2" stretches to 2-1/8"). The red is a clear, deep blue-based (not orange-based) red. Pre-washed.
