Coasting Along - that's how you'll feel while wearing garments created in this first rate wool worsted. Boasting a stable handle and a super soft feel, this lightweight suiting has an amazingly soft drape quality and barely creases!
It's versatile palette of blue skies and watery sea tones is accentuated by a sandy taupe overcheck that's so fine its barely there. This subtle creation makes for a smart yet casual style suiting with a faded denim versatility.
You'll find that Coasting Along is perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats which will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans.
Add accents in tan or beige leather/suede trims for a complimentary look. Wooden or horn style buttons are great with dark blues for chic and effortless relaxed styles.
Ladies, Coasting Along is perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waisters as well as classic smart suits, pencil skirts, jackets and blazers.
If suit making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts too. The Merchant & Mills 'Shirt Dress' and 'Trapeze Dress' will look stunning in this fabric. There's also a simple drawstring-waist trouser pattern too (The 101 Trouser'), which will work perfectly with our Coasting Along Fine Worsted Suiting.
