Traditional with a twist, quality, first rate, Italian woven, shall we go on?
This closely woven wool and polyester medium weight twill is stable, strong and hard-wearing. It has a versatile soft drape that boasts a sumptuous, soft cosy feel. If being the perfect shade of multitonal grey isn’t enough, this superb fabric has stunning black velvet polka dots embossed to its surface.
Polkamania is the perfect fabric for a multitude of sewing projects! Adored by movie stars and fashion designers, the likes of Marylin Monroe, Doris Day, Marc Jacobs and Comme des Garcons. Everyone loves the appeal of a polka dot design.
Make the most of its fabulous drape by creating garments with eye-catching features such as coats with fitted bodices and full circular or gored skirts (very '50s Rockabilly), coats with ruffle details down the fronts or on the hemline - think extravagant costume styles!
If neat unfussy styles are more your thing, showcase the playful and timeless appeal of this first-rate polka dot twill by creating neat blazers and jackets. Smart waistcoats, neat pencil skirts and A-line skirts all look superb in Polkamania. Why not create smart work-wear pinafore dresses with neat details such as pleated skirts and cute '60s style button down tabs?
Polkamania is perfect for grey lovers who want something a little out of the ordinary and teams perfectly with classic black and white. For timeless pieces you can't go wrong with this first rate fabric.
N.B. It’s thought that the dots in a polka dot design reflect the same short bursts of energy in the Polka dance. The perfect fabric design to add that little extra to your usual grey outfits!
