Chanel Style Monochrome Check is a beautifully soft and textured, basket weave style, medium weight, cotton blend fabric. Woven in Italy from a clever blend of fibres to produce a fabric that is both comfortable and practical. Chanel Style Monochrome Check has a classic, monochrome palette with fresh natural white contrasting beautifully with a deep true black.
There's a certain '60s Chanel style to this first rate fabric. Garments made in this stunner will become favourites you will return to year after year.
Chanel Style Monochrome Check boasts good stability width and lengthwise, plus gentle ease across the bias which provides an excellent soft and sumptuous drape that feels wonderful. The face side of the fabric has a relatively loose weave, (a characteristic of the fancy Chanel style weaves), with a detailed almost rope like - cable effect forming a double lined over-check .The reverse of the fabric has less of the loose yarn details present in the face side .
Emphasise the '60s style of this first rate fabric by constructing neat Chanel style suits, A-line dresses, double breasted coat dresses, 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 black or ivory buttons for true vintage look.
For something a little different and very stylish make Stitchless TV's Sculptural Bucket Coat, you will have a wonderful summer weight coat, simply bind the seams with coordinating black or ivory bias binding. Chanel Style Monochrome Check will also make ideal coatigans and cardigan styles, just bind the seams for a flawless finish.
Why not 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 Chanel Style Monochrome Check, hand fray the edges for a professional finish.
