This finely woven 100% silk is made in a classic fine Ottoman rib, to produce a luxurious lightly textured & silky fabric with excellent structure. Black Ottoman silk is highly prized for stylish formal wear, traditionally used for men's neck ties. There are so many wonderful, chic and smart garments to be made from this silken structured wonder.
Boasting a crisp hand which is super stable, the very fine ribs run horizontally and you can choose which way to use them. A sleek silhouette can be achieved by using the ribs in a horizontal fashion. Choose classic styles: '50s fitted 'wiggle' dresses, dresses with fitted bodices and flared skirts such as Vogue V2903 and Simplicity 8448 are ideal. Used alongside fine black worsted suiting or black wool crepe to create sharp tuxedo style suits. Create matching purses and clutch bags with a vintage style; add vintage mother of pearl buttons and buckles for an authentic finish.
Historical costume makers, this will make superb Victorian costumes and all the accessories to go alongside too. Milliners this will make fabulous fascinators and hats, its crisp hand is perfect for creating structured statement pieces.
