Elevated Elegance - Tropical Suiting is a first rate wool suiting, woven from the finest quality yarns. This stylish fabric boasts a stable handle and a lightly textured (due to the weave) soft feel. A lightweight breathable suiting fabric, similar to a tropical suit weight, has an amazingly soft drape quality and barely creases! Perfect for warmer climates where you still have to look smartly attired.
A versatile palette of sapphire blue and black is accentuated by a small overcheck that features a silken cross detail woven in lustrous black yarns. This design feature catches the light and produces the elevated elegance to this woven wonder. The combination of subtle colour and weave detail makes for a smart yet interesting style with excellent versatility.
Elevated Elegance - Tropical Suiting is perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats which will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans. This clever suiting will of course make the finest suits for stylish gents and ladies. Perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe too.
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 Elevated Elegance- Tropical Suiting.
