This classic micro houndstooth design, fine Italian suiting, was originally woven for a top British designer. Gingerbread & Liquorice Micro Houndstooth Suiting has the delicious and warming baked gingerbread tone that sits perfectly alongside rich black liquorice. The union of these two comforting tones is a match made in heaven and sure to add a cosy style to your bespoke makes. Classic country style weaves will always be perennial favourites and this micro check is perfect to mix with larger country tweeds for a fabulous British heritage style.
Boasting a light weight, but akin to a good flannel with the benefit of the warmth and temperature regulating properties of wool. This first rate suiting is stable and has a lovely soft drape quality plus it's soft to touch.
This may be suiting fabric but suiting fabric is not just for suits. Think of this as you would a good quality cotton flannel, buy a little extra, prewash and shrink and you can use it in the same way as your cotton flannel.*
Gingerbread & Liquorice will make fabulous fine suits but you can also make super shirtdresses, prairie style dresses, gathered and pleated skirts, '40s style dresses, sweet country style traditional little girls' dresses. Simple tunics and bohemian smocks to layer with your jeans and cardigans. Take a look at the 'Dottie Angels' patterns from Simplicity for some cute country styles perfect for teaming with other checks and natural fibre fabrics.
