Nightshade Check is a wonderful, super soft, shirting weight flannel style cotton fabric that's woven in the most incredible herringbone weave.
It features a dark and rich palette of complimentary tones, including black and deep blood red that almost merging together in the central square areas of the check, giving the combined colour of nightshade berries. The over check features gentle cafe latte and cream colour tones, which, when combined with the darker colours, give a soft brown haze to the check. The addition of a superb royal blue elevates the fabric and emphasises the rich jewel-like tones.
Boasting a strong and stable handle, Nightshade Check also has a lovely soft drape quality too. This first rate fabric will make favourite smart/casual shirts and blouses as well as shirt dresses.
Nightshade Check is perfect as a winter alternative to tartan for traditional girls dresses. Why not try adding contrasting or coordinating blue smocking details to the bodice and a matching satin or velvet sash to the waistband?
Team this stunner up with rich jewel toned corduroys. It's perfect for making shirts and blouses to go with cosy trousers, skirts and pinafore dresses. However, Nightshade Check isn't just for clothing! Don't forget all those crafting uses too! This hardwearing linen and cotton will make superb cafe or camper van curtains, table covers, napkins and place mats. It's also the ideal backing for fleece or fur throws, bag linings as well as hat or cap linings too.
