If you think that this first rate, designer, suit weight fabric looks familiar you aren't wrong. This handsome beauty is the lightweight worsted version of its heavyweight sibling (Rainbows In The Dark - Windowpane Check)
This large windowpane checked fine worsted wool suiting fabric is woven in a classic twill weave from the silkiest combed yarns. Rainbows in the Dark Fine Worsted is a light / medium weight worsted fabric with alternating black and navy 25cm stripes which intersect to form the 25cm squares, like bands through the fabric. Very designer!
Expertly woven in Italy, originally for a top British designer (famous for his rainbow stripes) this multi tonal darkest navy toned fabric is woven with a large windowpane design which features a rainbow of colours which intersect the dark background like rainbow coloured lasers. Red, blue, green, turquoise, yellow and purple are all represented in the superb windowpane check.
This super soft, lustrous fine worsted is stable width and lengthwise and has a soft medium weight drape which begs to be used en masse for Viv Westwood style- bias cut dresses and skirts. Rainbows In The Dark will look fabulous fashioned into items which will maximise the impact of the large check, choose dramatic styles with fitted bodices and full flowing skirts, Victorian Riding coat styles, full bias cut, gored skirts. Alternately make a feature of the window pane check by creating neat '60s Mary Quant style dresses and pinafore dresses. Play with the design and pleat to the squares to create tonal effects with the black and navy tones ideal for box pleated skirts etc.
Bring out the rainbow colours in this stunning fabric by teaming with solid-coloured shirts roll necks and matching accessories.
