Midnight Highways - Fine Worsted Herringbone is another first-class suiting fabric originally destined for the same top British designer as our SOS collection. Woven in Budapest, by a company famed for their flawless quality and classic designs. This dark and silken beauty is no exception.
Midnight Highways is woven in super smart, rich coloured yarns of the darkest midnight navy. The combination of these silken combed worsted yarns and herringbone weave looks like endless rain-soaked highways, where the light from car headlights steals into view and retreats back into the midnight shadows. This super-smart, classic dark navy captivating fabric is sublime!
Midnight Highways boasts a closely woven, stable hand, with a soft, chic, and lustrous drape quality which is perfect for creating flawless and timeless styles - you don't have to be a tailor to create flattering garments from this stunner. You can of course make the smartest jackets, trousers, skirts, pinafore dresses, shift dresses and classic office and boardroom attire, but consider bias-cut dresses with an Anglo-Viv Westwood style the bias cut and drape will show off the herringbone's stripes and lustrous sheen perfectly.
This silken softie will drape tuck and gather perfectly - ideal for feminine flared styles, perhaps with a vintage '50s vibe- we're thinking fit and flare, full-skirted dresses and flirty wiggle dresses with fantail pleats!
Other great styles to try are simple clean-cut lines, look to Merchant and Mills - Trapeze Dress or Factory Dress for comfortable yet smart workwear. Sew Different's: Tulip Dress, Everyday Chic Dress, and Tie Belt Dress are all great styles to make in this designer suiting fabric.
