Byron Windowpane Check is a stunning medium weight 100% Italian lambswool woven in a classic twill weave with a superb windowpane overcheck. Rich black sets the scene for Byron, like its namesake - dark and mysterious but also rich and complex up close.
The subtle windowpane overcheck features a perfect purple and uplifting cornflower blue. Sitting alongside this stunning combination is the subtlest shadow overcheck in navy, which adds a hazy quality to this excellent fabric. Soft and with a lightly brushed finish Byron Windowpane Check has a subtle lustre which is showcased when draped. The medium weight handle is stable width and length ways and boasts a soft and substantial drape quality.
This first rate Italian wool is perfect for a host of dressmaking, tailoring and costume purposes, not to mention the fact that it'll make stunning curtains too! (Pattern repeat is only 7cm/2.8").
Imagine perfectly tailored coats and jackets with a certain historical inspiration (such as Dior's AW 17 haute couture collection) - fitted bodices and full skirts which will showcase the stunning drape.
Also perfect for mens tailored jackets and lightweight coats too! Costume makers, historical reenactors and cos players rejoice. This stunning fabric is perfect for steampunk styles and historical attire!
Try elegant winter skirts and coordinating accessories such as purple woolly tights or cornflower blue accessories - bags, belts, etc... A new winter cape perhaps? Line with beautiful strong purple silky lining. Other great uses include pinafore dresses, circle skirts, A-line skirts and Oxford bag style trousers (wide leg).
