This excellent and sturdy cotton fabric was originally made for a top designer renowned for their iconic outerwear. Create A Storm - Mackintosh Fabric is woven in a close hard-wearing weave and has a coating applied to its reverse side to give the fibres (and the fabric) excellent stability and a crisp handle, perfect for creating smart and smart/casual outerwear.
Create A Storm features a finely striped woven design with alternating black and grey vertical stripes set between natural white. The super fine, double warped, close weave also boasts a slightly ridged horizontal effect which gives the design the look of a small check. Classic medium/heavy weight cottons are super smart and classic coloured checks never date.
Use this first rate fabric to create timeless trench coats with all the classic details - epaulettes, storm flaps, fabric belts and wrist tabs. Add some black or grey chunky buttons and perhaps some contrasting piping to the collar and you will have your own designer masterpiece! For simpler styles choose streamlined overcoats with simple single breasted fastenings and slanted welt pockets.
If overcoats and trench coats aren't for you look at The Kelly Anorak from Closet Case Patterns and The Eden from Tilly and The Buttons, these anorak styles are perfect for creating smart casual jackets from Create A Storm.
When you have finished making your fabulous outerwear make matching hats, caps and bags. Create a Storm is perfect for tote bags, messenger bags and stylish caps and hats!
