just uploaded a variant on this with background plaid all in grays, but foreground figures maintaining their colors. Not sure whether the checkerboard one is worth keeping, but I did order a swatch of it, so I'll keep or delete when I get a look at it on fabric.

Yes, it was the cotton-silk I was thinking of, I got a sample with one of my orders. I guess I was so focused on whether it was see-through or not, I didn't notice the blurriness. It seemed good for a shirt to me, but I don't know a lot about that stuff. There may be some discussions in the forums about what works best for what.
"If it takes more than one round of reprint to get colors good enough I may not be able to have a shirt in time for October trip."
*That* sounds familiar! :o)
Thanks, Harriet. The silk would be too thin, but maybe you mean the cotton-silk that was in the sample book saying "coming soon." It was quite beautiful, but because rthere was printing on it, I could see that it bled visibly more than the printed front page of the swatch book, which was probably a piece of quilting weight cotton. So I'll go for the sateen, I guess. Thanks for liking the pattern. I ordered a swatch as soon as I uploaded it a couple of days ago, and look forward hopefully to seeing how it prints. If it takes more than one round of reprint to get colors good enough I may not be able to have a shirt in time for October trip.

Hi, Paul; That's a fun one, very unusual color combo that really seems to work. Hope the print came out as you hoped.
I haven't gotten anything in the sateen, but everybody raves about it. That might be best - unless you want to go wild with the silk! It's light weight, but opaque.
I'd like to ask anyone who reads this what Spoonflower fabric would be best for a man's dress shirt, long sleeved. I got the sample book and am wondering whether the upholstery weight cotton twill would be too heavy; I wouldn't have thought it was upholstery weight from the little swatch. Quilting weight cotton looks too flimsy. Am I right? Is cotton sateen the best? Thx
