Italian Lake - Light Wool Flannel is another first-class suiting fabric originally destined for the same top British designer as our SOS collection. Woven in Italy by a company famed for their flawless quality and classic designs. This deep, dark beauty is no exception.
Italian Lake is woven in a classic twill weave from a rich and dark palette of super-smart, multi-tonal blue/green yarns, the colour of deep dark Italian Lakes which reflect the mountain side views and crisp clear sky. Charcoal grey, navy, and teal hues swim together for the perfect composition. A refreshing change from the go-to navy, Italian Lake is super smart and ideal for gents and ladies apparel.
Italian Lake boasts a closely woven, stable hand, with a soft lightly felted and brushed feel, and a chic and lustrous drape quality which is perfect for creating timeless styles - you don't have to be a tailor to create flattering garments from this stunner. You can of course make the smartest jackets, trousers, skirts, pinafore dresses, shift dresses and classic office and boardroom attire, emphasize the elegant drape quality perfect for wide-legged Audrey Hepburn style trousers, culottes and classic pleat-fronted trousers, neat pencil skirts, pinafore and shift dresses. Italian Lake will drape tuck and gather perfectly- ideal for feminine flared styles, perhaps with a vintage '50s vibe- we're thinking fit and flare, full-skirted dresses and flirty wiggle dresses with fantail pleats!
Other great styles to try are simple clean-cut lines, look to Merchant and Mills - Trapeze Dress or Factory Dress for comfortable yet smart workwear. Sew Different's: Tulip Dress, Everyday Chic Dress and Tie Belt Dress are all great styles to make in this designer suiting fabric.
