I was cutting checks today, and nearly missed this little flaw running through the middle of the fabric - can you spot it?
No? Let's zoom in a little closer:
See that horizontal blue stripe in the middle? It's half missing!
This was the only faulty stripe in the 3m length that I had, and because there was plenty of fabric I was able to cut around it, so it was no big deal. But I'm glad I spotted it before I cut out the skirt panels - or my sides seams wouldn't have matched!
And speaking of matching - in my next post I'll show you how to cut out perfectly matching checks (or plaids if you prefer) - fun, fun, fun!
