Midnight Express is the epitome of elegance. Rich black, viscous and with a subtle lustrous sheen, this stunning fabric has a cool feel (on the satin surface) and a smooth but slightly crepe textured finish on the reverse. The crepe reverse of Midnight Express is a rich matte black and has the fine but grainy texture of a quality crepe - very classy!
This sumptuous fabric has a slight stretch across the width (no lengthwise), and a stable length wise handle This gorgeous satin backed crepe has a light/medium fluid drape, making it the perfect choice for a beautiful bias cut evening dress, ballgown or prom dress. Picture a 1930s, lace-backed, bias cut, elegant drapey gown in this first class satin backed crepe. Super for dramatic dresses that require good drape, lustre and sheen. Why not use the matte side as a substitute for wool crepe to make palazzo or evening pants with a matching jacket showcasing the satin side. 1940s style dresses will make up brilliantly from this versatile fabric- use the matte and satin sides for contrasting cuffs, collars, neck bands and cover buttons.
