Dapper Check

Fabric Code: B4b14
View the other photographs to see the scale of Dapper Check and know exactly what you're buying!

Dapper Check is the most sublime, superfine Italian lambswool suiting woven by Vitale Barberis Canonico. It has the softest lightly brushed feel and a stunning medium/light weight stable while also boasting a drapey handle. Showcasing a subtle lustre, its rich peaty brown  base colour plays host to complimentary cornflower blue, soft beige and terracotta windowpane check. This marvelous melange of rich yet subtle colours forms our Dapper Check. The finest Italian weaving techniques have produced a cloth that is light/medium weight but is closely woven with such fine yarn that it is both strong and stable too!

If you thought tailored pieces were all this wonderful fabric was designed for, then think again...

Make the most of its sublime drape quality and use for ladies wear pieces that require soft and feminine drape, for example; skater skirts and dresses as well as pinafores. A-line, gored and godet skirts, as well as circle and full skirts can all be made with this fabric. Peplum pencil skirts, fishtail style skirts or skirts with undulating ruffle details would all look superb in this Dapper Check, as well as practical and smart dresses too! 

Steampunk and period costumers and cos players rejoice! This will make stunning frock coats, tail coats, jackets, waistcoats and men's trousers.
