    I have seen some lovely Sunday Brunch Jackets made with cotton tweed which has sent me on a search for material. The tweed fabric I am finding are all wool blends that must be dry cleaned. However, I have some flannels that have a tweed look. Does anyone know if cotton tweed is also know as flannel tweed? Has anyone made a Sunday Brunch Jacket in flannel? I don’t see it listed as one of the suggested materials on the pattern. If cotton tweed is not another term for flannel tweed, does anyone have an idea where I might find cotton tweed? Thanks!

    It’s so odd. When I searched for cotton tweed on Mood it turned up such a queer mix of fabrics, including one called Cotton Tweed with no cotton at all! Most seem be a mix of mostly cotton with some other fibers. Some are even upholstery fabric, but I think few here would work for your needs. Do check the width, most are a fair bit wider than quilting cotton:

    I made one in a wool tweed. I machine washed the fabric in cold to pre-shrink it as suggested by Nicole and others. It came out great. I haven’t needed to wash it again, but I’m confident it will be fine.

    I can’t help with “cotton tweed” but I’ve made one in flannel. It was very cheap quilt basking blender flannel in the discount basket at the big chain store but it turned out nicely. Not heavy weight, but just nice as a long sleeved light cover-up over a jumper.
