Mesh – fabric of the moment?

Have you noticed mesh everywhere in the fabric shops? Here’s two ways to use it.

Channel your inner rock chick.


The pattern I used was Style Arc’s Harper jacket. This mesh is a very stretchy black and silver.The seams and edges all done with a narrow rolled hem on the overlocker. A simple fun make.Barbarajanemade wp-1476596780067.jpeg

Or what about your inner  flower child. This one in gold  and cream mesh. For this I used Tessuti’s Megan longline cardigan pattern sans the sleeves.


and joined at the centre front



Are you doing the mesh thing?

  1. I’m on the fence about mesh – I use it often for banding on knits (the thicker mesh) but I’m not sure how I would like it on me. Looks great on you! I love your white sleeveless cover especially! Can add some interest to a simple Tee and pants!

  2. Oh, I love them both! I made a mesh dress but sadly it laddered under the arm, so I am going to have to dye it. I have also put together a top with silk mesh neck and sides. Both very boring makes, and not nearly as gorgeous as yours.
