There are so many useful applications for our Baleen Blue Fine - Gaberdine. Featuring a soft yet strong feel and boasting a close and super stable weave, with a fine characteristic diagonal twill detail on the face side (which is less pronounced on the reverse) this fabric exudes quality and practicality due to its strength, stability, and medium/light handle. Baleen Blue - Fine Gaberdine will drape when used en masse with a reassuring weight, perfect for classic outerwear and hard-wearing dressmaking projects. This is an excellent alternative to lightweight denims and will look amazing with contrasting top-stitching.
A beautiful mid blue (with grey undertones) that always looks smart, you can dress this up or dress it down, and wear with red and white Breton stripes for Parisien style chic. Baleen Blue is a classic colour that we know is perfect for year-round garments which you can layer up in winter or wear as stand alone pieces come the warmer months. Simply decide what to make from this super versatile fabric: neat pencil skirts, jeans style skirts, chic capri pants and neat blazers.
