This fine worsted suiting fabric, woven in Yorkshire by Alfred Browns at Guiseley, West Yorkshire, has the smartest pinstriped design reminding us of the sharp suits worn by Mr Capone himself.
Capone's Navy Pinstripe is woven in fine navy worsted yarns which showcase the pale blue pinstripes spaced at 5cm intervals. This classic twill weave provides a smooth, flawless finish for the pinstripes to create understated drama. Capone's Navy Pinstripe is stable width and lengthwise and boasts a delicious, medium weight drape which begs to be used for elegant attire, after all... suiting is not just for suits. Take a look at our blog Pattern Suggestions for Suiting Fabrics.
Put this fabulous Yorkshire-woven worsted to use for super smart work attire such as wide-legged, Audrey Hepburn style trousers, culottes and classic pleat fronted trousers, neat pencil skirts, dresses and fit and flare dresses. Utilise the excellent drape quality and add feminine ruffle details to your skirts and dresses: peplums and fish tail hemlines - perfect on '50s style wiggle dresses. Neat shift dresses and pinafores will become key work wear pieces made in this flawless fabric. Add a pale blue shirt to bring out pinstripes and you are good to go!
