Night Time Tweed is a wonderfully textured cosy, medium/heavy wool tweed fabric. Woven from alternating double warp threads of grey and black and alternating grey and navy throughout the weft to produce a wonderfully dark and evening inspired palette. The finely crinkled and curled yarns produce the cosy brushed texture which presents itself in the form of a bouclé like basket weave - very tweedy!
Night Time Tweed is closely woven, so therefore stable width and lengthwise, with slight give on the bias and a reassuringly cosy drape quality which is perfect for fashioning a plethora of versatile separates, outerwear and accessories too.
Ideal styles to try are classic Chanel Suits - neat lined pencil skirts and matching jackets, emphasise the dark sapphire tones in the navy yarn by adding a complimentary velvet or sequin trim to your jacket for true designer style. Vintage styles such as swing coats and jackets with shawl collars are perfect choices to make too, this quality wool fabric will embrace you with movie star chic when sporting your vintage style makes. Classic overcoats and jackets are also ideal choices too. If your sewing skills are not at the semi tailored stage yet then try simple cocoon coat patterns such as Sew Different's - Cocoon Coat or for something a little different why not make Stitchless TV's - The Sculptural Bucket Coat, the drape details which form the bucket / pockets will fall perfectly in Night Time Tweed. Why not make matching accessories like hats, caps and bags too? This cosy wool bouclé will sit perfectly with dark indigo denim so why not combine the two fabrics for your own bespoke creations.
If dressmaking isn't your forté, this cosy and textured medium / heavy woollen will make excellent soft furnishings too. Try simple envelope style cushions where you can showcase the fringed selvedges or simple throws too, if you're feeling adventurous add some luxury navy or grey velvet as a backing.
