You can't beat a classic! Classic Navy - Stretch Wool Crepe is a top notch wool crepe, that has just enough added elastane that it has a versatile comfy stretch, delicious drape and is malleable with excellent resistance to creases. Woven from a lightly crimped yarn in a super close weave construction, this brilliant fabric that never dates can be used for women's and menswear. (This little gem came from a company that made garments for top high street boutique ladies wear designers that sell 'little navy dresses' with a hefty price tag.)
Wool crepe is so versatile, its redeeming qualities of temperature regulating warmth, excellent drape and resistance to creases, good stability and of course being the perfect alternative to black, means that there are a plethora of things you will want to make.
Choose figure-skimming sheath dresses, shift dresses & 1940s styles with feminine gathered details such as puffed sleeves and under bust details; neat pinafore dresses perfect for timeless work-wear and ideal teamed with a white shirt. For something a little different, shirt dresses and '70s style peasant dresses with (we think little white daisy trim or crochet cotton lace) for an uplifting contrast to the plain navy. If dresses and skirts aren't for you, this Classic Navy - Stretch Wool Crepe will also make the most stylish pleat fronted trousers with a matching blazer too. McCalls M7661 is a super stylish pattern for wide legged pants/ trousers with an optional, contrasting side panel detail and tie belt variations. Perfect made in this excellent fabric due to the stretch, weight and drape.
