    I love this print. Does anyone happen to know where it comes from? I suppose I could ask the folks at McCall, but I thought I’d ask here first:

    I’ve a tiny piece of this fabric (20 cm). It is a knit fabric, two layers quilted together. Really beautiful.
    My local fabric store has find this at Montréal (Canada)
    in a box of designer remnants at an warehouse. She don’t know the precise name. I would love to find more …
    Try for C&M textiles or Telio, in Montréal

    Sorry that I can’t help more.

    I contacted McCall’s customer service https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7462. This is their reply: “Thank you for your email concerning McCall/Butterick/Vogue/Kwik Sew Patterns. Whenever possible we try to provide our home sewers with the information they desire. This is from TELIO: Quilt Illusions (35855-01 Black/Multi). Michael Levine Inc. (lowpricefabric.com)

    Liesl, Fabricana is in my neck of the woods. I can check out the one in Coquitlam and Richmond if you would like.

    Oh, this is amazing! Thank you so much, @timpson! @robin, if you have a chance to look for it, I’m very interested in it. I’ve been told it’s a knit, but it doesn’t really look like it in the photo, does it?

    Liesl,
    The floral at Harts Fabrics is not the one on the McCalls pattern – sorry!

    Thanks for checking, @nanamar! @robin went and found it for me yesterday, but it was printed on a quilted poly knit that sounded not very nice. Too bad! It’s a stunning floral. I was wanting to make a dress with it. xo

    Liesl – There’s a member over at Patternreview.com that has samples of the Telio knits and she feels they are actually quite nice:

    Thanks, @clt3! It’s the quilting that’s throwing me off. I wanted something drapey-ish for a dress. But I’m still thinking that it must be available in another substrate someplace, because the original outfit doesn’t appear to be quilted.
