Classic heritage tones of red and navy are accentuated by pops of gold and green, whilst earthy brown grounds and adds a mellow woody tone to this classic tartan style fabric. This richly coloured tartan evokes warming thoughts of grand Highland balls with kilt-wearing men and elegantly dressed ladies dancing in ancient country houses upon mellow wooden floors. The walls sport heraldic shields with pops of gold and green and stately windows bedecked in rich, navy and wine velvet curtains keep out the cold winter elements.
Highland Romance Tartan is woven in a classic twill weave with fine polyester and viscose yarns. The blended yarns produce a suiting weight fabric that is soft and drapey to handle (feels like fine, soft lambswool) yet is stable strong and hardwearing.
Tartan style fabrics have a timeless style and suiting weight fabrics are definitely not just for suits, and tartan, plaids and checks are classics. Create iconic British designer styles with icons such as Viv Westwood and Alexander Mc Queen as your inspiration or choose lifelong country classic styles. Perfect for adding a pop of traditional colour and style to your wardrobe whether it's the festive season, Hogmanay, Burns Night or not.
Neat blazers and matching skirts, (pencil, pleated - like traditional Kilts or A-line). Trouser lovers make sharp cigar-style trousers or glamorous wide-legged trousers with a retro style. Our The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers are ideal, add deep turn-ups for a swishy weighted drape quality.
Cinch in your waist with a matching closely fitted Jemima Waistcoat for bombshell glamour and a forever outfit with class! Expand the vintage glamourpuss vibe and create waist-cinching wiggle dresses with tummy flattering pleats over the hips- alternately add peplums and fantail pleats in the back seam.
Look to style icons such as Dita Von Teese for inspiration, Charm Patterns have an excellent range of retro style patterns. We think this classic tartan has very 60,s vibes making it ideal for styles with a nod to that era. Think of the simple silhouettes of Mary Quant A-line dresses, cute pinafore dresses with fun pleats and contrasting white Peter Pan collars, patch pockets and chunky metallic zips. There is so much you can make from fabrics like Highland Romance- Tartan.
Plaid is not just a fad and Tartan is timeless!
