(I’ve posted this to a few sewing sites, but it can’t hurt to put it here too.)

Help me, internet, I am desperate. I am trying to find fabric like this:

I have found similar upholstery silk dupioni, but ideally I’d like cotton or cotton blend for apparel (I’d take silk too, or a really lightweight wool). The plaid is large, squares maybe 3″ on a side. I’d take a different colorway as long as it wasn’t like pastels or something, something similarly autumn like would be nice.

I’ve search for plaids at every online fabric store I can think of, I’ve searched Google for madras plaids, cotton plaids. I’ve lost hours to searching through “swatches” online. I feel like I could be doing a more efficient job but I’m at a loss where to start.

Any ideas? or has anyone seen anything like this?
