Fruit Cocktail - Showerproof Cotton

per metre
Fabric Code: M4d18

There's a fiesta of fruity colour in this first rate, showerproof cotton twill!

Woven in Italy, from the finest cotton fibres in a classic twill weave and double layer construction. The face side of Fruit Cocktail boasts a punchy pop of pink and the reverse a mouthwatering orange. This showerproof (the face side) cotton twill, will brighten a dreary day and keep you dry in a light shower of rain.

Fruit Cocktail is stable width and length wise and will drape softly too, this fabric is malleable and soft, perfect for creating eye-catching and fun outerwear that you will return to year after year. An alternative to the usual mariner's yellow and blue combination, this beauty is a fun addition to your spring summer sewing wardrobe. Show off the contrasting orange side by creating unlined jackets and trench coats and turn back the cuffs, top-stitch the pink face in a bright orange thread for a professional finish.

Ideal garments to make from the Fruit Cocktail - Showerproof Cotton are TATB - Eden Coat, Merchant & Mills The TN31 Coat, The Landgate (cagoule style), The Strand Coat. Victory Patterns - Ulysses Trench is an excellent unlined trench coat perfect for throwing on! Closet Case Patterns - Kelly Anorak, Envigado Vest - Itch to Stitch is the ideal gilet/vest pattern perfect for making with cosy quilted lining.

Wendy Ward's - Sewing Basics for Every Body has a fabulous coat pattern 'The Dylan Coat' which can be made into a fab anorak or longer line parka style.
