Help Needed: choosing fabric for next project

Help! I need to make a new kit for cycling ie cycling shorts and a jersey. When (if?) the weather finally turns cold and it rains, I want to add thermal leggings and most likely a light waterproof shell. I can’t settle on which print to use. Here are my choices, which one would you pick for me?

Option 1: Floral panels.

This fabric is actually panels for bikini tops but I bought it to use as inserts. So think of it as matching pairs at a jersey neckline, at the cuffs or ankles or added into the side panel of nix. Potentially, I can pair it with solid black, white or pink. I also have a short length of the black and white print too.

Option 2: Mayan print

This one is a purplish-blue with neon pink/coral. I’ve got solids in similar colours to go with it, as well as black. The solid neon pink really in-your-face so I’ll use it sparingly.

Option 3: Lime and Charcoal Filigree print

I have two coordinating prints – white or charcoal backgrounds. For solids I have white, lime, charcoal and black. Plus there is a WP softshell fabric that has a charcoal face with lime fleecy lining that I’d like to make over the winter.

OK, so there they are. Which is your pick?

Thanks for your help!


  1. I have chosen the floral which is gorgeous.



  2. All of these are beautiful, but the Mayan print is my pick for cycling gear. The others just want to be swimsuits!



  3. […] out.  I was a little more confident with the fit of the shorts component, so I used one of the fabrics you selected for me back in May.   Just need some minor mods to the bib at the front, but other wise, they were great […]
