Let this beautiful, pure silk, floaty chiffon transport you to faraway places and dreamy exotic holidays. Shibori Style - Silk Chiffon is printed with a beautiful Japanese artisan-style, block print design where patches of dye create an authentic look.
Rich indigo hued blocks are depicted in artistic swathes and set against a natural white background.- emulating this traditional hand-dyed, Japanese style.
This feather-light chiffon has a superb drapey light handle. Chiffons characteristically have a very light, drapey handle and lots of bias stretch and our Shibori Style is no exception - it will gather and tuck beautifully!
Beginner sewers will need to have some experience with this kind of fabric or perhaps start with a scarf or small project first (French seams are recommended for chiffons). However, if you take your time and put in the extra effort this fabric will make the most stunning of garments.
Perfect for floaty and feminine blouses or a stunning '70s inspired full prairie-style dress, like the Friday Pattern Company's - Wilder Gown alternatively use it over the top of finer silk satin or cotton lawn to create beautiful drapey layers. Beach cover-ups for the summertime, such as sarongs or kaftans are other great uses for the exotic Shibori Style. Try coordinating with other fabrics to create ruffles, frills or just use it for the sleeve on a blouse or dress for a different look.
If garment sewing isn't your thing, simply take 2 metres and hem the edges; you'll have yourself a stunning silk scarf or wrap for a fraction of the price of one you'd buy on the high street!
