Here is my final Tip: If you use fabrics that are in the same range of Shade (Lighter,Darker), the result is more pleasant. I do not like the 6023 Burda with a white middle and a really dark outside. It looks like this big huge tongue or snake hanging down your front side. You can use any favored combination of hues (~colors) but if the shade of them is way to different, it could look odd. To estimate the Shade of a patterned Fabric, squint at them to make it real blurry.
Feel free to message me for any questions, or if you need help finding a patterned Fabric to go with another patterned Fabric, or a color to go with your favorite material.
