This finely woven wool and elastane suiting-weight fabric is made from superfine lightly crimped yarns. Desert Sand - Crepe Feel Stretch Suiting has so many elegant redeeming features that you may want to make a wardrobe full of clothes from this one fabric only.
Boasting a classic hue of cool beige tones like its namesake, Desert Sand also has a fine grainy texture, but is in no way scratchy. It is actually soft and malleable with a delicious, reassuring drape quality like you would expect from a wool dress crepe. Excellent stability lengthwise, as well as a versatile retentive stretch across the width, makes for a classic fabric.
Naturally temperature-regulating this predominantly wool fabric is ideal for year round garments which are sure to become your go to pieces.
Desert Sand will make stylish shirt and coat style dresses, safari style dresses with pockets, self-belts and epaulette details (add tortoise shell style buttons for a chic finish), ‘40s and ‘70s style dresses with gathered yokes full sleeves, and gently flared skirts, are perfect styles to make in this super elegant classic. Alternatively how about a super glam fit & flare ‘50s dress? Pleated and gathered, or flared and godet detail skirts are classic choices, as are culottes and full-pleated wide-legged trousers. Add a matching blazer for a perfectly coordinating style.
