This fine wool worsted suiting fabric has a lovely natural colour palette of new shoots green through to sun dried wheat beige and natural white. Wheat Field Stripe Worsted is woven with classic pinstripes for a timeless style.
The close weave boasts a smooth finish and subtle lustre, a stable handle width and lengthwise with a wonderful drape quality and will make sharply tailored garments through to classic less tailored styles such as shift and shirtdresses. Naturally crease resistant due to its finely spun and combed yarns you will be amazed how versatile this suiting fabric can be. If you thought suiting fabric was just for suits, let us change your mind.
By pre-shrinking your fabric prior to cutting out (purchase extra to allow for this) you can still launder your carefully made creations regularly on a gentle wool cycle and dry naturally and have versatile and unique garments for a fraction of the cost of your usual designer purchases that tend to be dry clean only. (For more information on suiting fabrics and laundering instructions see our FAQs).
Wheat Field Stripe Worsted has a certain vintage style but can easily be translated into equally modern styles.
Men’s and ladies suits will have a certain 1940s style when fashioned with double breasted details, or move this style forward to the '80s and fashion power dresses with coat dress styling and shoulder pads. For another classic style the’ Ulysses Trench Coat’ by Victory Patterns will look fabulous made in this classic pinstripe.
For a gentler style, combine this natural toned wool suiting with classic country tweeds by making neat trousers, simple pleated skirts and versatile pinafore dresses. Add some cleverly coordinated green buttons and you’ll have a winning combination.
