Forager's Fruit Check - Worsted Suiting
per half metre
Fabric Code: B4b33
Forager's Fruit Check - Worsted Suiting is a first-rate all wool suiting, woven from the finest quality yarns. This stylish fabric boasts a stable handle and a lightly textured soft feel, due to the weave and tightly twisted yarns. A lightweight breathable suiting fabric, similar to a tropical suit weight, has an amazingly soft drape quality and is resistant to creases! Perfect for warmer climates and seasons where you still have to look smartly attired.
A versatile palette of dark blue and black the colour of wild dark berries is accentuated by a 1cm window overcheck that features red berry yarns. This design feature produces a classic style with vintage elegance. The combination of subtle colour and weave detail makes for a smart yet interesting style with excellent versatility.
Forager's Fruit Checkis 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. Wide leg trousers, like The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers, will create a vintage style akin to Katherine Hepburn's iconic style- add deep turn-ups for a swishy drape that will produce a carefully curated image worthy of a movie star. Team with the Jemima Waistcoat for a simple but striking suit combo!
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. Perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe 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 Forager's Fruit Check.
