Has anyone sewn with French General fabrics?

    I’ve fallen completely in love with Moda’s French General fabrics and I want to make a dress or two for my girls, but I’m unsure about the scale of the patterns and was wondering if anyone has sewn using their florals or toile patterns.

    I want to make the Birthday Party dress and/or Ice Cream dress so any pictures of these would be welcome.

    Thank you

    Yes! And they’re gorgeous. Check out my birthday party dress and ice cream dress in the FG fabrics. The fabrics are gorgeous to work with. http://www.flickr.com/photos/30045150@N08/4641671179/

    Thank you for these! They are gorgeous.

    It’s so hard to see what the scale is of the pattern on those teeny tiny swatches in the webshop. And kid’s clothes need slightly smaller scale patterns I think or lots of the beauty is lost.

    I ordered some French General today and I hope it will look as stunning.

    I ordered some French General after seeing that birthday party dress on FlickR. I love it! I ordered from Fabric.com. I was surprised with one I ordered that the print was much smaller than I had anticipated from seeing it online. It has a lovely feel to it, and I am looking forward to working with it.
