Camellia's Sunday Best is a beautifully soft and textured basket weave style, medium weight wool blend tweed fabric. Woven in a fabulous four-pointed star weave (similar to houndstooth but more striking) from a clever combination of delightful melange yarns in complementary soft green, dusky pink and dark chocolate brown tones -( like pink camellias nestled amongst glossy green foliage and dark stems) to produce a texturally and visually stunning fabric. Lovers of the classic pink and green marriage will adore the complementary hues in this superb fabric.
There's certainly a quirky and retro British tweed style about this first-rate fabric. Garments made in this stunner will have a classic appeal, easily mixed and matched with separates in pink, green or chocolate hues.
Camellia's Sunday Best boasts good stability width and lengthwise, plus gentle ease across the bias which provides an excellent soft and sumptuous drape that feels wonderful.
Emphasise the '60s style of this first-rate fabric by constructing neat Chanel style suits, A-line dresses, double-breasted coat dresses, spring and summer coats and jackets. If '60s vintage style clothing isn't for you then simply extend the hemlines and you immediately enter a different era in style, '80 & '90s styles can easily be achieved by a few simple tweaks. Add some gold buttons for a more modern style and add chunky green or pink-hued buttons for the true vintage look.
For something, a little different and very stylish make Stitchless TV's Sculptural Bucket Coat. When made in a fabric of type similar to Camellia's Sunday Best you will have a wonderful summer-weight coat, simply bind the seams with coordinating green or pink hued bias binding. Camellia's Sunday Best will also make ideal coatigans and cardigan styles, just bind the seams for a flawless finish.
Make fabulous matching accessories such as bags, hats and caps. Wouldn't a Baker boy cap with a coordinating covered button at the top look perfect with your sixties inspired makes?
If dressmaking isn't for you then simple soft furnishings such as throws and cushions will be fabulous in Camellia's Sunday Best, hand fray the edges for a professional finish.
