This superfine, flat weave, checked worsted suiting fabric was woven in Italy by master weavers and originally made for a top British designer. Now you can make your own bespoke designs.
In the Shadows Check is woven from a subtle melange of navy, black and spruce green, fine worsted (combed) yarns, (with a little added polyester for everyday wearability) . The small checked design at first glance appears to only feature navy and black, but look closely and you will see superfine outlines of spruce green hiding in the shadows of the navy and black.
This lightweight suiting fabric is stable and boasts a close weave and soft drape quality that is perfect for a multitude of garments that don't have to be suits.
Why should only tailors get to use beautiful suitings? In the Shadows Check is perfect for ladies drapey dress designs and is also stable enough for shirts and shirt dresses. Of course, you can't beat a classic suit can you?
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. 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 In the Shadows Check.
There are many other patterns available suitable to use with In the Shadows Check, think clean simple lines and unfussy cuts!
