This visually stunning, lightweight, high quality satin was originally created for a renowned British ladies and menswear designer famous for their fine occasion wear with quirky and elegant styles; inspired by history and the natural world. We decided to name this fabric SOS; as an acronym that stands for Special Occasion Satin, referencing this particular fabric and its sister fabrics in the collection. Click here to see the full range of Special Occasion Satin fabrics.
Sweet Shop Treats is a finely woven lightweight polyester satin twill and has a quirky printed design which has a wonderful individual modern yet retro style. This silken stunner will appeal to those who love individual striking design.
The signature design depicts rows of wooden shelves containing glass jars filled with classic sweet shop favourites. This photo realistic design boasts a seriously smart colour palette of monochrome grey black and white, accentuated by rich jewel tones of garnet, amethyst, lapis, amber and jade. The overall effect is quirky yet sophisticated and suitable for both ladies and gents clothing, and brings to mind childhood memories of sweet shop treats.
Boasting a super soft, silky feel and subtle sheen, you would be forgiven for thinking this was silk. This first rate satin has a sumptuous hand which is stable width and lengthwise with a delicious drape. All you have to decide now is what to make.
Sweet Shop Treats will of course make stunning occasion wear pieces, dresses with drape and gathered details, bow tie blouses and dresses, cowl-necked shift dresses, simple dolman sleeved tops. Quick make slashed neck scarf style tops will all add a hint of luxury to a simple jeans and top outfit. Take this elegant wonder and create '50s inspired fit & flare dresses with true vintage style. Gents and ladies longer line shirts will make a statement and be true conversation pieces.
Spoil yourself or someone special and create stylish and sumptuous traditional pyjamas with coordinating piped collars and pocket tops. Or a slinky camisole and shorts set with coordinating lace and matching kimono robe. Create retro/vintage style robes for the man in your life with a smoking jacket vibe. Use two similar fabrics from our Special Occasion Satin collection and create a two tone effect like the robe in Vanessa Mooncie's 'The Gentleman's Wardrobe'. This excellent book has plenty of fab vintage clothing ideas (with patterns) where you will find more opportunities to use SOS.
Sweet Shop Treats will also make a statement lining for your bespoke woollen jackets, coats and waistcoats (with statement waistcoat backs!). You won’t be able to resist showing people your wonderful lining! Create simple cravats, scarves, headbands and luxe accessories to match.
