    I haven't. But because I was curious, eh...let me refrase that... because I like to be well informed , I Googled. His name comes up in combination with (upholstered )furniture,home decorating, luggage,even blouses. Most of them mention his great use of color,but I couldn't find any info about him designing fabrics.

    Wasn't he the one who designed the dresses of Carol Burnett when she had her TV show? And Cher?

    Collection Of Carol Burnett's Costumes
    The costume which Bob Mackie designed for "Went with the Wind" speaks so much about his caliber and capabilities. Leading-lady Carol Burnett said about this ...

    I have the opportunity to buy some of his fabrics but didn't know what "type" of fabrics Bob Mackie is/are?

    The person that has them isn't very good at describing. I'm interested only in quilters fabrics and I'm thinking he didn't have a part in any of those? hhmmmm....

    If you would like to see his style, go to QVC.com, he is on there quite often.

    I'm just wondering why somebody would have his fabric? (I found somebody that is selling off her fabric collection and she said some of the fabric is by him)... I have no clue what to expect and am buying it site unseen - which can be scary.
